Blueberry French Toast Casserole

Want a happy morning family? Then you need to have a Blueberry French Toast Casserole  ready to pop in the oven for breakfast. This is the perfect dish to whip up the night before or make it in the morning and pop it in the oven for brunch.

I am not going to lie… this is the best French toast casserole I have tried. It has the perfect mix of ingredients and the flavors of almond, cinnamon and blueberry will explode in your month with your first bite. French toast is a staple in our family, definitely a top morning request. I love that the recipe is flexible enough that I can make it ahead of time, especially if I have friends coming over for a brunch.  If you have 10 minutes you can make it quite spur of the moment as well.

Making Blueberry French Toast Casserole

I said 10 minutes of prep and I’m not kidding, take a look.  You cut up the bread slices into cubes or about 6 cups worth. In a mixing bowl you combine all the ingredients except the blueberries and whisk well. Spray a 9×13 baking dish with cooking spray and fill it with the bread cubes. Pour the liquid mixture over the bread and toss (like a salad!). You can either let it sit for 30 minutes before popping it into the oven @ 350 for 40-45 minutes or you can let it sit over night and cook it in the morning. This recipe can feed up to 10 people!

Breakfast for Dinner

Our family could eat it any time of the day, and it’s fairly common to find us eating some kind of  breakfast recipe for our dinners,  especially when we are so busy on week night with our kids. Sometimes we get off track with our breakfast choices but not with this recipe. It is simple to throw together and it is beyond delicious and filling.

I have the same question about using whole eggs. Is it ok?

Nicole says:

This was the best recipe I’ve tried for French toast casserole! I topped mine with sugar and broiled for a couple minutes. Thank you so much for this recipe.

DAWN says:

I don’t use almond milk. I am guessing I can use 1% milk?

Jackie says:

Yes! That is perfectly ok to use. 🙂

Katie says:

I was wondering about the eggs too (only whites?) and preparing ahead instructions like others have asked – I didn’t see the answer though so thought I would ask as well. Thanks! 🙂

Elizabeth Mohler says:

Best Christmas breakfast ever! I top mine with coconut oil and maple syrup. Fantastic!

Clea says:

I have the same questions — why not 8 whole eggs….? And, what about preparing it the night before: any guidance?

Amyd says:

Does this reheat well? Considering making it for work and reheating in microwave

Cathy Byman says:

Do you use 8 egg whites or 8 whole white eggs?

If you make it the night before, should you wait and add the blueberries just before you bake the next morning?

Larissa says:

The egg ingredient – is that meant to be 8 egg whites? Not 8 whole eggs? I couldn’t find anything in the context of the post to identify either.

Angie says:

Although it sounds like a wonderful recipe I’d love to try I still didn’t see the ingredients I need to use to make the mixing. The recipes used to come at the end of the article in a red box. ???
