Ready to level up your breakfast game? Just imagine a sweet, juicy burst of blueberries mingling with the creamy goodness of cream cheese, all baked to golden perfection. Yes, you guessed it—we're talking about a blueberry cream cheese breakfast bake. It’s sure to steal the show at any breakfast or brunch gathering, so what are you waiting for?

What’s the best kind of bread for a breakfast bake?

When it comes to choosing the best kind of bread for a breakfast bake, you’ll need to consider the texture and flavor of your dish. If you’re not sure where to start, King’s Hawaiian Sweet Bread is a great option for breakfast bakes. Its slightly sweet flavor pairs well with fruits and custard-like fillings, creating a heavenly combination in your dish.

What should you do with breakfast casserole leftovers?

The best part about this blueberry breakfast bake? The leftovers taste just as good as your freshly baked casserole. Store your leftovers in the fridge covered in plastic wrap for up to 1 week or freeze them for up to 3 months. Reheating your leftover blueberry cream cheese bake in the oven is easy, and within a few minutes, you can enjoy the deliciousness all over again without compromising its flavor or texture.

How can you keep leftovers from drying out?

If you find that the bake has dried out slightly, you can add a small splash of milk over the top. This helps add moisture back into the dish, ensuring it stays tender and moist while reheating. Whether you’re enjoying it for breakfast, holiday brunch, or even a delightful dessert, you can rest assured that every bite will be just as scrumptious as the first.

This blueberry breakfast casserole is the epitome of breakfast perfection, combining convenience, comforting indulgence, and the heartfelt touch of homemade goodness. So, put on your apron, preheat your oven, and let's dive into this delightful culinary adventure!

1. Prepare for Berry Bliss

Start by preheating your oven to 350°F. When you’re making a delectable blueberry cream cheese bake, using the oven is not just convenient; it's a game-changer. 

Once you've mixed up the batter, poured it into your baking dish, and popped it into the oven, your work is essentially done. Unlike stovetop cooking, which requires constant stirring and attention, the oven allows you to step back and relax. You can use this time to tidy up the kitchen, prep other parts of your meal, or simply enjoy a well-deserved break. Sounds like a win-win, right?

2. Rise and Shine with King’s Hawaiian

Grease your 9x9 inch square baking pan with cooking spray. Then, place half of your bite-sized King's Hawaiian Sweet Round Bread cubes into the dish. Each bite is a blissful experience, making it the ideal canvas for our blueberry cream cheese bake. The natural sweetness of King’s Hawaiian bread perfectly complements the tartness of fresh blueberries and the creamy richness of the cream cheese, creating a harmonious balance of flavors.

Once you’ve covered your baking dish with bread cubes, it’s time to distribute the cream cheese and half of your blueberries over the bread. Then, top with the remaining bread cubes and blueberries.

3. Top Off Your Dreamy Dessert

In a large mixing bowl, combine the milk, maple syrup, and butter. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Feel free to channel your inner chef and give it a good whisk. Remember: We're looking for that perfect, creamy consistency.

Then, pour the egg mixture evenly over your baking dish, creating a creamy concoction that’ll soak into every inch of the King's Hawaiian bread cubes.

4. Bake to Perfection

Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil to prevent the edges from browning too much during baking. Then, bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour, or until the top is golden brown and a knife inserted into the center comes out clean. Your kitchen will be filled with the most heavenly aroma—the scent of dessert bliss!

5. Slice, Serve, and Savor Every Bite!

This blueberry cream cheese breakfast casserole is not just a breakfast delight; it's perfect for any time of the day when you're craving a little something sweet. Once it’s cooled, cut it into squares and serve it with a dollop of whipped cream, maple syrup, or a scoop of vanilla ice cream for an extra indulgent treat. If you're feeling fancy, dust the top with powdered sugar before serving to make your bake look even more irresistible.

Congratulations! The moment you've been waiting for is here. With every bite, you'll experience the delightful contrast of the tangy cream cheese and the burst of sweet, juicy blueberries. It's a match made in dessert heaven.

So there you have it—a simple, scrumptious recipe that’ll elevate your baking game and satisfy your dessert cravings. Give it a try, pair it with your favorite fruity tea, and get ready to fall in love with this delicious dish. Happy baking!
