Blueberry Cream Cheese French Toast

When Chloe was born, a friend sent us a gorgeous cheese plate with all types of incredible cheeses and fresh French baguettes. The two of us couldn't possibly go through all of that cheese and bread on our own, so I refrigerated the cheese and cut the bread into cubes to dry out for another use (I'm way too frugal for my own good!). I hate waste. For example, I hate when I have to buy a loaf of bread and only wind up using half, so I have to come up with recipes that I can use before the bread goes bad. Recipes like blueberry cream cheese french toast are a perfect use for day old bread.

Blueberries are in season now and one of Kenya's new obsessions is cream cheese, so I decided to put it all together for this delicious breakfast recipe. Even better, you can prepare the dish up to 24 hours in advance, refrigerate, then pop it in the oven when you're ready to bake it for a elegant but easy morning treat.

When I pulled this out of the oven, my family’s eyes lit up! Also it made me happy to be using ingredients that otherwise would have gone to waste.

    Wow, my six year old is a blueberry and cream cheese fiend (he usually asks for cream cheese and blueberry jam sandwiches or bagels, and nothing else will do). Will definitely try this for him this weekend. Hoping to get a whole grain in there; have you tried other breads with more fiber/whole grain?

      yes i have, they totally work, the more dense bread is though, the longer you have to soak it.

    would whipped cream cheese work and, if so, how much would I use?

    I tried this a few weekends ago hoping I could use it when I had company in town and it was a total bust. Not even close to appetizing. I followed your recipe to a \"T\" and not sure what happened. It sat over night in the fridge. It looked amazing, but like I said didnt taste that way. What should I do differently Ive made tons of other things from your website and they all turned out great, this was my one flop. Please help:)

      So sorry to hear that, we added some things in to the recipe, we top the french toast with Maple syrup which brings out the flavors and is amazing. Did you use any type of syrup with this?

    Looks yummy.....But I don't suppose it could be made without eggs could it? Maybe with silken tofu....hmm...I'll have to try.

      The egg is the binder in this recipe so I am afraid that you will need it. I have not tested it with tofu though, you can give it a try and let me know how it turns out.

    I heard you on Today show yesterday, nonetheless, I am making this for a larger group for Sunday. If I double the ingredients and bake in a 9x13, would you suggest increasing the cook time? By how much? Thanks!

    Can you make this and cook it and then give it to someone and have them just reheat it ... thinking of making it a holiday hostess gift but it would soak too long if i dont cook it cause they probably wont use it till the next morning

    I made this for my daughters birthday party years ago, printed out the recipe.... and I'm SO glad I did because I couldn't find any other blueberry cream cheese french toast recipe online that was as healthy as version! After some serious googling with specific key words such as \"agave\" \"1 1/4 cup milk\" and \"3 eggs\" I FOUND THE RECIPE AGAIN!! I really wanted to share it because it is a healthier version with way less eggs, and I loved that it doesn't call for a ton of sugar either. It was delicious!!!!

    I used mixed berries, and I think next time I will substitute the blueberries for strawberries because there were some strawberries and they were amazing in the mix! I'm so glad I found this recipe again!!

    This is delicious! I made this for my family and they all loved it.

    I added a tablespoon of maple syrup along with the 2 tblsp of agave. I mashed the cream cheese up into the egg mixture, and I also added 1 tsp of cinnamon, and a 1/4 tsp nutmeg. I don't like blueberries, so I used strawberries instead of blueberries. YUM!

    Thank you for this great recipe!

    I made this years ago for my daughters birthday breakfast, and I printed out the recipe, and I'm so glad I did because this recipe is way healthier than any other blueberry cream cheese french toast recipe out there, and way easier too! Way fewer eggs, and way less and sugar!!
    After some extensive Googling and use key words like \"1 1/4 cup milk\" \"agave\" and \"3 eggs\" I finally found this recipe! YAY!!!

    Made this for the kids this morning and they loved it, it was perfect, but I think I will try strawberries next time like another commenter suggested!
