Blueberry French Toast Casserole

Jump to Recipe

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.

If you are bored with the standard French Toast recipes out there then this Blueberry French toast casserole is the way to go. You will be trying to fit the next bite into your mouth before you’re finished with the first.   Before my kids dig into this deliciousness they like to add some pure maple syrup and a little powdered sugar dusted on the top.  If you happen to have extra blueberries – check out some of our other yummy Blueberry Breakfast recipes!

Hi Nadia! Thanks for bringing that to our attention! Our amazing author of that post is out of town for a few days, so hang tight, but we’ll be sure to get it up as soon as she is back!

I don’t see the actual recipe in this post. Am I just missing the link? I am on my phone if that matters! Sounds delicious! My daughters (4 & 1) are blueberry obsessed!

Hi Kim! Thanks for bringing that to our attention! Our amazing author of that post is out of town for a few days, so hang tight, but we’ll be sure to get it up as soon as she is back!

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. ???

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.

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?

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

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! 🙂

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.

Hi Kate! In our experience, French toast usually freezes pretty well, so I would think this would freeze just fine, too.

We made this recipe for dessert….and then we had leftovers for breakfast. Definitely a hit in our house ?

I was also wondering if the recipe calls for 8 egg whites or 8 whole eggs. Please advise. I see that this question has been asked several times and no one has responded yet. Thank you.

Made this with leftover bread ends, that nobody likes to eat. Delicious casserole, my family loved it! We will definitely be making it again! I left out the honey and it still tasted amazing!

Was worried about the almond extract but my picky 16 year old loved this. Used cow’s milk with some yeasty leftover rolls.

After baking, you can freeze for a month or two! Thaw in the fridge and heat in the oven if you want to crisp it back up. 🙂

What should I substitute the almond milk and extract with?…unfortunate almond allergy in our home. Thank you for your help!

Sorry for the confusion- I have fixed the recipe. It’s just an odd way the system had of adding that ingredient. 🙂

Prepared this the night before for Christmas. Simply baked the morning of! This was the “toddler friendly food” but it was a hit with everyone. Only changes I made were:
(1) Maple syrup instead of honey,
(2) No almond extract – didn’t have any,
(3) Used day old challah for a treat, and
(4) Frozen blue berries.
Will make this again! Very good!

Thanks for this wonderful recipe! I have tried other baked French toast recipes that were too sweet…..nice for the holidays, but too much sugar for a healthy everyday breakfast. I used maple syrup in place of the honey and used up leftover bread ends (as someone else suggested, which is ideal), and we enjoyed this for supper last night. It’s the perfect balance of sweetness and can be adapted by the types of bread one uses. I used only 1/2 tsp of pure almond extract, and that was enough for good flavor. I will definitely make it again. 🙂

I made this for a committee meeting at my house, and it was a big hit. I used raspberries because of what I had on hand, and it was wonderful, but I look forward to blueberries next time. For the same reason, I used Egg Beaters and had no problem. I’m thrilled about the whole-wheat bread and calorie count. My sister and I used to make a very fattening, sugary version, and while I loved it, I would rarely indulge.
