  • 8 eggs
  • 2 1/2 cups half & half
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 tsps. cinnamon
  • 2 tsps. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp. salt

Blueberry sauce:

  • 2 cups water

Grease a 9×13 inch casserole dish. Cut bread in 2 inch cubes and set aside. In a large bowl, combine eggs, half & half, sugar, cinnamon, vanilla and salt. Whisk until completely mixed. Put one half of bread cubes in prepared dish. Top with half cream cheese cubes and half cup blueberries. Add remaining bread cubes and top with remaining cream cheese and additional half cup of blueberries. Pour egg mixture over bread cubes, pressing mixture down so completely soaked by egg mixture. Cover with plastic wrap and store in a refrigerator for at least 2 hours or up to 48 hours. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Remove plastic wrap and sprinkle casserole with sugar. Cover casserole with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Remove foil and bake an additional 20-30 minutes or until center is firm and bread is slightly brown on top.

Blueberry sauce:

In a small saucepan, combine sugar, water and cornstarch until simmering. Add blueberries and simmer for 10 minutes. Using a fork or whisk, slightly break up the blueberries to the desired consistency.

Cool casserole slightly and serve with blueberry sauce.

Consolidated’s internet is provided by a coaxial or fiber optic cable that provides consistent performance and is less vulnerable to signal interference than a wireless connection. Fixed Wireless Access (FWA), also called 5G home internet is a wireless technology. 5G signals are radio frequencies transmitted over the air, so data transmissions are less consistent than a wired connection.
