I love to make this as the main dish at a small brunch of women. It is a hit and is even good without the blueberries(which I don't use if they are too expensive).

Too many eggs!! Did not cook well enough and it was soggy because of the eggs.

Before my changes a 3 star. After, a 5! Wow, you have to try this. I made it for Christmas morning and everyone loved it. I changed the following: I used day old sliced french baguette bread, I added 1/4 cup of sugar to the egg mix. I used 7 instead od 12 eggs. I also creamed the cream cheese, not leaving it as cubes. Try it, you'll love it!

I'm not sure what happened, but this didn't turn out at all. It wasn't sweet enough so I would recommend adding some sugar with the eggs. I would also recommend using french bread, or something much thicker to absorb the eggs. I would also use less eggs to avoid the dish coming out mushy. Lastly, I would cream some sugar and cheese so it comes out smooth and creamier.

I made a few changes to this recipe. I used a loaf of day old French bread, added sugar, cinnamon, and syrup to the egg mix. It really needs day old bread to absorb all the eggs, cook until the center is spongy.

We loved this!! i had fresh blueberries, but since it's cooked, i figure frozen would be just as good. i also used old sourdough bread and buttermilk - wow! thanks for this great breakfast. i am always looking for ways to use eggs and this recipe is great for sunday morning when i really don't want to cook. thanks again!

I made a version of this for Christmas morning and everyone loved it! Ages 2 - 62. I am making this again for tomorrow morning, and I am making a few alterations.... If you are making a 8 or 10 serving batch, I would cut the eggs to 10. The first time I made this, I noticed that it was a little soupy when I took it out of the frig, so I drained about 2 eggs worth (it still came out wonderful!). The first time, I used blueberries. After I sprinkled the cream cheese and blueberries over the first layer, I sprinkled sugar over everything. This time I am using frozen strawberries (which have sugar added), so I didn't add sugar. I added about 2 tablespoons of cinnamon and 2 tablespoons of vanilla to the egg and milk wash before I poured it. Keep maple syrup handy for those pancake lovers or there is a recipe for blueberry syrup on one of the other french toast recipes!
