Simple yet stunning, this French toast-like dish will make a fabulous centerpiece for your next Sunday brunch.

Ingredients

  • 1 loaf (14 ounces) egg challah or other white bread
  • 4 oz reduced-fat cream cheese
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries, divided
  • 8 eggs, beaten
  • 1- 1/2 cups milk
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup melted butter

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Cut the bread in 1-inch cubes (makes about 10 cups). Cut cream cheese in small cubes (makes about 1 cup). Grease 9-x-9-2-inch baking dish. Place half of the bread cubes in the dish. Scatter cream cheese cubes and 1 cup of blueberries over the bread. Top with remaining bread cubes and blueberries. In a bowl, combine eggs, milk, maple syrup and butter. Carefully pour over bread mixture. Bake until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, about 1 hour, covering with aluminum foil if edges brown too much.
  • To serve, cut in squares. Accompany with additional maple syrup, if desired.
