🫐How To Make Easy Blueberry French Toast Casserole

Sharing is caring!

If you’re looking to make something for breakfast or brunch that not only tastes great but is also a really easy recipe, you’ve found the right place. This oven-baked blueberry french toast casserole recipe is it.

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

The best way to enjoy it is to prepare everything the night before.

The next morning just slipping it into the oven first thing 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.

For the cook too, since such an easy blueberry french toast casserole put together the evening before beats standing in the kitchen making a regular french toast while everyone else is enjoying good times in another room.

My family begs me, yes begs me to make this breakfast recipe. Filled with juicy blueberries, your family will beg the next time too.

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 and always gets rave reviews.

Our tradition started when my mom brought 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.

This delicious blueberry french toast casserole is a great option to bring when:

  • Friends are overwhelmed after moving
  • It’s a fun girls brunch
  • It’s potluck time
  • Welcoming someone to the neighborhood
  • There’s a death in the family
  • First time parents who are so, so tired
  • You want to say thank you
  • You’d like to help out just because
