Blueberry French Toast Casserole

Sharing is caring!

If you’re looking to make something for breakfast that not only tastes great, is easy to make, but looks like you put in more effort, this oven-baked blueberry french toast casserole is it.

We like to use it for special occasions. I make this for a yummy Christmas morning breakfast, for Easter brunch and also it has also become a birthday breakfast request.

Since all the work is done the night before, just slipping it into the oven before a shower, before you begin opening presents, or even popping it in the oven and going back to bed (with an alarm set first, of course), makes for such a nice treat.

My family begs me, yes begs me to make this recipe.

While I love it, I do like to keep it for those special occasions so we don’t get sick of it and it stays a family tradition.

It’s so delicious we hardly ever have leftovers, but even those taste just as good.

This also makes the perfect recipe to bring someone as a gift.

I remember my mom bringing one to me a number of years ago on Christmas Eve so that all I had to do on Christmas morning was pop it in.

With small kids at the time, it was great.

So for someone who is overwhelmed after moving or a death in the family.

For new parents who are so, so tired or for anyone, you’d like to help out.
