Ingredients for blueberry breakfast bake

I made this dish earlier this week while at my parents for a big family breakfast.  It was a huge hit, especially since it was so easy to whip up and allowed us plenty of time for visiting. I whisked together the eggs, cream, salt, cinnamon, sugar and vanilla in a large bowl, and Mom roughly cubed a loaf of sourdough.

Blueberry Breakfast Bake prepped and ready to go in the oven. We arranged the sourdough in the bottom of a buttered 9×13 baking dish, poured the egg mixture over it and then piled in as many fat blueberries as the cracks and crevices of this casserole could hold.  Covering it carefully, we stored away our breakfast bake in the fridge so the sourdough could soak up all the eggs and cream it could hold.  We let it soak for 30 minutes (just the right amount of time for a little visiting and cup of coffee on the patio), but an overnight soak in the fridge works great too!

Then 35 minutes in a hot oven while Mom cooked up sausage rendered this golden gorgeous number just begging to be spooned out on waiting plates.  Blueberries bursting and bubbling, sweet cream and eggs married with the sourdough…  oh, and the aroma!

This wonderfully simple dish never disappoints.  It’s a feast for the eyes and nose, as well as the belly.  Serve it up just like it is or pour a little maple syrup over your little slice of heaven.  Either way, this Make-Ahead Blueberry Bake is just about as good as family time around the table can get.
