This was a decent breakfast/brunch, but takes too much time to cook in the morning and ties up the oven for an hour which is a big down side, in my opinion, especially on a holiday morning when you need the oven for Turkey, Ham, and such. It was a little soggy and the cream cheese didn't melt so was still in clumps. Getting chunks of cream cheese took away from the rest of the dish. I don't think I would make this again given the time it takes in the morning (30 min. to set out of the fridge and then another hour in the oven on top of prepping the sauce), but if I did I would probably use a little less milk and egg mixture or a bigger dish with more bread AND would use less cream cheese and melt it with some blueberries and pour it over instead of leaving it in chunks.
The blueberry sauce was super simple and I give it 5 stars! Will be using it again for sure with regular french toast or other suitable dishes. Overall, this recipe was okay, but could be better with some tweaks. However, I would not consider it a good holiday breakfast/brunch as the time it takes to cook and prep the morning of is too inconvenient. It is a really pretty dish when done though so if you are looking for something pretty to present and have the time in the morning this would be a great choice (again with some small tweaks).
