Thanks for the great recipe! What a wonderful breakfast for any special occasions, or just to make breakfast special on the weekend!
I had almost a half-gallon of blueberries left from last season in my freezer so I thought I could use some up to make room for more fresh.
MY twist was to use whole Texas Toast slices, versus chunks of bread! I layered the bottom of my greased dish with the slices of Texas Toast. My dish fit 3 across and 2 deep perfectly! Also, I sliced the cold/firm cream cheese into strips (approx 1" wide x 3" long x 1/4" thick) to lay 3 or 4 across the bread slices (again, it fit the bread slices perfectly!); added the blueberries ... topped with another layer of Texas Toast slices. Poured the egg/cream/vanilla mix over it all, and as directed, refrigerated overnight. This morning, I let it sit at room temperature approx 30 min. Baked 30 minutes covered, and 30 minutes uncovered while I made the simple syrup with blueberries.
Voila! No chunks or globs, just full layer of rich cheese and berries! There wasn't room in the dish to pour the syrup over, so merely topped each plate with the hot blueberry syrup and served with whipped cream!
Boy did I earn some brownie points today!
