Perfect for a holiday morning or weekend brunch. This Easy Blueberry French Toast Casserole with Streusel Topping is a family favorite that is oh so easy to make.
“This is so good!” & “This is really good!” are two of the many praises you will be hearing if you whip up a batch of this Easy Blueberry French Toast Casserole with Streusel Topping!
We had this for breakfast when we had out of town family staying with us, and just about every couple bites, they said “This is so good!” & “This is really good!” It was a great way to start a busy day because we were going a couple hours away and would be eating out the rest the of the day. This is so inexpensive to make, it was a big savings, and everyone had time to get ready while it was in the oven; so we could get out the door and not have to stop for breakfast as well.
Perfect for a holiday morning, or weekend brunch, it’s actually become a tradition for Christmas morning, just because it’s so easy to make. This fed 4 hearty eaters and we still had a big bowl of leftovers that heated up nicely in the microwave for a snack. It’s so simple to whip up and toss in the fridge overnight, pull it out first thing in the morning and put in the oven. Or, make and bake after a few minutes for the bread to soak up the custard.
This time around we made a streusel topping, and drizzled warm maple syrup over the top, but sometimes a homemade blueberry syrup is good to top it off with so you can get that extra blueberry-y goodness!
We love blueberries because they have so many health benefits, and they taste good. Sometimes we make this Blueberry and Bacon French Toast in the skillet when there is just the two of us, and add a Blueberry Lemonade Bellini when we are in a festive mood!
- You could swap the blueberries for diced peaches, or apples & cranberries.
- Serve with breakfast sausage or bacon
- For a festive fall brunch or breakfast you might like to try our Caramel Apple Cider Mimosa.
