Ingredients

  • 12-14 oz quality bread - You can use French Challah, or Texas Toast
  • 2 cups blueberries
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 2/3 cup water
  • spring of rosemary optional
  • 10 eggs
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tsp vanilla divided
  • 6-8 oz goat cheese - Don't love goat cheese? Cream cheese would be a fine alternative.
  • 1 Tbsp powdered sugar
  • zest of 1/2 lemon finely chopped after zesting
  • 3/4 cups Bisquick
  • 1/3 cups sugar
  • 2 Tbsp melted

Instructions

  • Grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  • Cut bread into 1 inch squares and spread in the prepared baking dish. Ideally, leave this bread out for a few hours to become a bit stale. This will help your casserole to not get too soggy. Alternatively, stale the bread using your oven. I turn my oven up to 350 and then turn it off, leaving the bread in for about 30 minutes.
  • Combine blueberries, sugar, vanilla, lemon juice, water and a sprig of rosemary in a heavy saucepan. Bring to a boil on high heat, stirring occasionally. Once it hits a boil, reduce it down to medium-low heat and simmer until thickened, about 20 minutes. Allow to cool. Remove rosemary.
  • Completely combine goat cheese, 1/2 tsp vanilla, powdered sugar in lemon juice. Mixture should still be crumbly.
  • Whisk eggs, milk, cream, sugars, cinnamon, and 1 1/2 tsp vanilla and whisk to combine.
  • Evenly drop one tablespoon of your blueberry sauce and 1 teaspoon of your blended goat cheese mixture onto the bread.
  • Pour your custard mixture over the entire dish, covering completely. Press down with your spatula slightly to assure full coverage.
  • Cover and refrigerate for at least 3 hours or overnight.
  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Stir to combine Bisquick, sugar and butter. It should be crumbly.
  • Remove the goat cheese and blueberry French toast casserole from the refrigerator and sprinkle the crumb topping evenly on top.
  • Bake for 45-50 minutes. Allow to cool for 5-10 minutes before serving.
