My kids love this Easy Overnight Blueberry French Toast Casserole Recipe! This makes my morning go so much smoother. This recipe is the definition of my Easy Breakfast Recipes.
Easy Overnight Blueberry French Toast Casserole Recipe
I love this recipe because it takes about 10 minutes to throw together. If you do not have French Bread or Italian Bread use what is on hand, it will still turn out amazing. If you do not have blueberries then use what you have.
Can I make french toast casserole with other fruits?
I have used bananas or strawberries in the past. I also found once I had no frozen fruit so I did it fruitless and the kids still raved about it. That is a win for mom!

I’m making this now and find no instructions for make the sauce, just the ingredients. The syrup is has different ingredients. Kinda of confused.

Fixed the sauce is the Easy Homemade Blueberry Syrup Recipe
The ingredients listed for the syrup on this page are different than the ingredients listed for the sauce recipe when you follow the link. This one has water, cornstarch and butter. As the other one includes lemon juice.
Can I have the correct sauce recipe and instructions. I see several comments anoit this but have not seen the answer. Making this tonight for tomorrow!! Thank you I’m advance!!
Barb Glass says
I agree this recipe is confusing. Do you put 1/2 c maple syrup w/ egg mixture? Or do you make the sauce and use it with egg mixture & serve on top of French toast after it has cooked?
Made this but used a blueberry syrup recipe from another blog as there is no clear answer on why the ingredients listed are different than the recipe with the link.
The entire post and recipe have been updated. The ‘sauce’ is my blueberry syrup recipe. Apologies for the confusion.
