This was a total hit for our Christmas brunch! I actually didn't expect the kids to like it because they aren't big on blueberries--but they came back for seconds. Used thawed, fresh Maine blueberries (which I'd frozen myself)...so much better than the big grocery blueberries--if you can get them, use them! (Wyman's frozen blueberries are also Maine berries, if you can't get them fresh yourself.) I did take some of the suggestions of others and reduced to 10 eggs, dusted with cinnamon and fresh grated nutmeg before refrigerating, and whipped the cream cheese with a tiny bit of milk and about 1/4 c. of powdered sugar so it would spread a little easier. Definitely need to press the bread into the liquid mix before letting it sit overnight, so it gets well sopped up. Served the syrup on the side, but it's definitely what makes this dish special, so don't forgo it altogether! This will stay on our rotation for a long, long time!
