This was very delicious!! I made the following changes based on reviews. I mixed 1/4 c powdered sugar into about 12 oz of cream cheese, I increased the blueberries to 2 cups. 12 slices of bread was not enough (even though it was oversized sheepherders), so I cubed up the rest of the loaf and toasted it in the oven. Well, I got distracted and they ended up a cross between stale cubes and croutons, but I used them anyway, and you could not tell! This was very good. HOWEVER, I think you need to be careful with the quantity of sugar. Our blueberries weren't very sweet, so if you ate the casserole w/o any syrup, it was perfect, as far as sweetness goes. However, if you poured on the very, very sweet blueberry syrup, it was too sweet for everyone except for the kids! Edible, but sweet. When I make it again, I will NOT add sugar to the cream cheese, and I will use just 8 oz. It was a whole lot of cream cheese in the middle....about the thickness of a thick layer of frosting in the middle of the cake. For our family, just a little too gooey/rich. Bottom line...my advice, follow the recipe as written except decrease the cream cheese to just one pkg., unless you want a thick layer of cheese. You may need to increase your bread cubes, and you may consider decreasing the sugar in the syrup, depending on how sweet the blueberries are....the syrup is excellent, but VERY sweet.
