Overnight Blueberry French Toast Bake

This Overnight Blueberry French Toast Bake is the perfect make ahead breakfast for busy mornings or when you have company over. It’s super easy to prep the night before.

I made my french toast bake with challah bread because that is what I had on hand. I also like to use brioche or french bread. I first cube the bread then toss it with with the cubed cream cheese and fresh blueberries in a buttered baking dish. Next I whisk the milk, eggs, maple syrup, sugar, and vanilla extract.

Maple syrup is used to sweeten up the french toast casserole. It gives the casserole the perfect sweetness with a hint of maple syrup.

While the french toast is baking I make the blueberry sauce. It’s super easy to make and is so delicious! All you need is four ingredients! Fresh blueberries, water, cornstarch and sugar are simmered until thickened. I serve the blueberry sauce on the side for serving. Enjoy!
