Baked Blueberry French Toast

Here's a yummy warm breakfast without too much effort in the morning!  This is a great dish to make when you have company for breakfast, but don't like to get up too me. :)  You put this french toast together the night before, let it sit in the fridge overnight, and pop it in the oven 45 minutes before breakfast. :)

Baked Blueberry French Toast

1 large loaf of french or italian bread
Cinnamon sugar, to taste
1 1/2 cups fresh blueberries
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese (optional)
6 eggs, beaten
1 cup cream
1 1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup pure maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla

Start by cutting the loaf of bread into 1 inch cubes, and the cream cheese into half inch cubes.  Spread half of the cubed bread in a greased 9 x 13 baking pan.  Top with all the cream cheese, and one cup of blueberries.  Sprinkle liberally with cinnamon sugar.  Layer the rest of the bread, and then the rest of the blueberries.  In a large mixing bowl, mix the eggs, cream, milk, maple syrup and vanilla.  Whisk together.  Pour the egg mixture evenly over the bread. You might want to gently press the bread down into the egg mixture, to make sure all the bread is wet.  Sprinkle again with cinnamon sugar, and refrigerate overnight.  In the morning, bake at 375º for 45 minutes.  Enjoy with more maple syrup!
