Serve this sweet and custardy breakfast bake for breakfast or brunch. It's assembled the night before, so pulling together a delicious breakfast for guests is a snap.
Ingredients: 
  • 1 (12-ounce) day-old baguette, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1 pint blueberries, divided
  • 12 ounces Neufchâtel cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 8 eggs
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • Maple syrup (optional)
Method: 
Place half of the bread cubes in a buttered 9x13-inch baking dish. Sprinkle with blueberries, reserving a few for garnish.

In a mixing bowl, beat cheese and sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs, sour cream, vanilla and cinnamon. Gradually add milk until blended. Pour half over bread. Top with remaining bread, then remaining cheese mixture. Cover and chill overnight or up to 24 hours.

Remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking and preheat the oven to 350ºF. Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean, about 25 minutes. Sprinkle with reserved blueberries. Let stand 5 minutes. Serve with maple syrup, if desired.
