Ingredients:  
12 slices bread, any kind or loaf of french bread
2 packages (8 ounce) cream cheese, room temperature
1 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen
12 large eggs
1 to 2 cup milk, add a little at a time until milk is absorbed by bread
1/3 cup maple syrup or honey

Blueberry Sauce:
1 cup sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 cup water
1 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen
1 tablespoons butter

Directions:
Directions:
1. French Toast Casserole: Spray 9 X 13 inch dish with Pam. Cut or tear bread into cubes and arrange in the bottom of dish

2. Cut up cream cheese into 1 in cubes. Drop the cream cheese cubes over the top of the bread. Sprinkle 1 cup blueberries over the top.

3. In mixing bowl, combine 12 eggs, 2 cups milk, 1/3 cup maple syrup. Pour this mixture, a little at a time until the bread soaks up the milk but not soggy. Cover with foil and refrigerate overnight.

4. Blueberry Sauce: You can make this ahead of time and refrigerate, then warm up before serving.

5. Stir together 1 cup sugar and 2 tablespoons cornstarch in a medium sauce pan. Add 1 cup water and stir until smooth. Stir well so cornstarch won't be clumpy. Heat to boiling and stir 2-3 minutes until thickened.

6. Add 1 cup blueberries, simmer for 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally until blueberries start to burst. Don't let them all burst. I like some of the blueberries whole.

7. Turn heat off the blueberry sauce and stir in 1 tablespoons butter. Store in plastic or glass container and refrigerate until ready to use.

8. The next morning preheat oven to 350 degrees. Take casserole out of the refrigerator. Place covered casserole in a 350 degree oven and bake for 30 minutes. Then uncover and bake for another 25-30 minutes or until top is a golden brown and the center is set.

9. While the casserole is baking, you can heat up the blueberry sauce on top of the oven or microwave until warm. Serve over top of casserole.
