Florida Fruit Recipe

Blueberry Breakfast Casserole

Fruit-5051
Ingredients  
2 cups fresh blueberries, rinsed and dried
8 large eggs, beaten
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 loaf bread (any kind)
1 1/2 cups low-fat milk
4 ounces low-fat cream cheese (cold so it can be cubed)
1/4 cup butter, melted
  cooking pan spray
 

Preparation
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cut bread into 1-inch cubes. Cut cream cheese into small cubes. Lightly spray a 9x9x2-inch baking dish. Place half of the bread cubes in the dish. Evenly place the cream cheese cubes and 1 cup of the blueberries over the bread. Add the remaining bread cubes and blueberries to the top of the casserole. In a medium-sized bowl, combine eggs, milk, maple syrup and butter. Slowly pour egg mixture over bread. Cover casserole with foil and bake for approximately 45 minutes. Insert a tooth pick in the center of the casserole. When the toothpick comes out clean, remove the foil so the casserole can brown on top. Let cool slightly and serve warm with extra maple syrup on the side.
