Breakfast Bake


My dad came to visit this weekend.  We had gotten him tickets to see 1964: The Tribute, which is a Beatles tribute band.  I grew up listening to the Beatles with my dad, and literally cannot hear a Beatles song and not think of him.  The show was great, and if you're a Beatles fan (especially of their early "touring years" music), I highly recommend you check out the show.  Last year we saw The Fab Faux, which was as good as, if not better than, 1964.  We had so much fun!

Anyway.  He spent the night, so this morning, I made breakfast for the 3 of us.  I made a blueberry french toast bake.  It was the first time I'd ever made it, and I must say, it was pretty yummy!

The recipe calls for:

8 slices of bread, cut into cubes
1 8-oz package of cream cheese, cut into cubes
1 cup of blueberries
8 eggs
1 1/2 cups of milk

Spread 1/2 of the bread cubes on the bottom of a greased 9x13" glass dish, then add the cream cheese.  Sprinkle the blueberries and top with the remaining bread crumbs.  Finally, mix the eggs and milk, then pour overtop.  You can cover and refrigerate it for up to 24 hours, then bring it out and bake it covered for 30 minutes, then uncovered for another 30 minutes (the bread on top should be puffy).  Serve with blueberry syrup for a truly yummy experience!

It was pretty yummy, and it was nice because I could put it together on Saturday and then just cook it on Sunday morning.  It seemed to go over pretty well with my 2 favorite guys, too!
