Freezer Meals: Blueberry and Cream Cheese French Toast Casserole...

Sometimes you just crave some sweet yummy goodness for dinner....well at least I do. This past week I was crazing some breakfast comfort for dinner, so I went to my shelf of cookbooks to find my recipe for french toast casserole. It's a favorite of mine I like to make once the weather cools and I can start using my oven again.

This french toast is a favorite because it's quick to throw together and you can prepare it ahead of time....oh and it feeds a lot so you can share it with your friends and family.

When I made this recipe, I doubled it. I made one for us to eat that night and another to put in the freezer. I cooked my casserole that I placed in the freezer. Now I have french toast casserole to enjoy later in the month. I love having a few saving graces in my freezer chest. It makes this mama happy :)

So here's how you make it...easy peasy :)

Blueberry and Cream Cheese French Toast Casserole

1 20 oz loaf of bread, cubed
1 8 oz package cream cheese
1 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen
12 eggs, beaten
2 cups milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/3 cups maple syrup
Powdered Sugar

Place half the bread cubes in a greased 9x13 in. pan. Layer cream cheese cubes evenly over bread. Sprinkle with blueberries. Cover with remaining bread cubes.

In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, vanilla, and syrup. Drizzle egg mixture evenly over bread. Cover and refrigerate for two hours or overnight. Remove 30 minutes before baking. Preheat oven to 350'. Let casserole come to room temperature, then cover with foil and bake 30 minutes. Uncover and bake 25-30 minutes more. Serve with powdered sugar and syrup.
