Blueberry Brunch Strata

Ingredients

12    slices white bread, cut into 3/4-inch (2 cm) cubes
2    (8-ounce/250 g) packages cream cheese, cut into 3/4-inch (2 cm) cubes
1    cup (250 mL) fresh or frozen blueberries (don't thaw)
12    eggs, beaten
2    cups (500 mL) milk
1/3    cup (75 mL) maple syrup
Extra maple syrup, optional
Drained yogurt, optional

Directions

Put half of the bread cubes in a greased 13- x 9-inch (33- x 23-cm) baking dish or pan. Place cream cheese cubes evenly over bread. Sprinkle blueberries over top and cover with remaining bread cubes. 

In large mixer bowl, beat eggs; add milk and maple syrup and beat until combined. Pour egg mixture evenly over top of layers in the pan. Cover, and place in refrigerator overnight, or at least 8 hours, to set.

Remove pan from refrigerator half an hour before placing in oven. Bake, covered, at 350°F (180°C) for 30 minutes. Remove cover and bake 25 minutes longer, or until lightly browned. Serve with maple syrup or drained yogurt, or a mixture of both. Makes 12 servings. Recipe can easily be halved; bake in an 8-inch (20-cm) square dish, and bake 10 to 15 minutes less, or until set.
