Blueberry Cheesecake French Toast

I absolutely LOVE breakfast for dinner.  It's easy, delicious, and I NEVER receive complaints.  I have a handful of AMAZING breakfast items that I enjoy making. Some are savored for special occasions, such as Christmas morning, and others are used throughout the year for dinner. You just can't mess up breakfast.

Here is the MUST TRY dessert breakfast recipe: DO NOT DELAY!
Blueberry Cream French Toast Casserole 
1 loaf French bread, cut into cubes (I used whole wheat)
8 ounces cream cheese, slightly softened
1/3 cup granulated sugar or Splenda equivalent
1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen (thawed and drained) blueberries, tossed lightly with flour
8 large eggs
1 1/2 cups milk 3/4 cup maple syrup 
1 teaspoon vanilla extract 6 tablespoons butter, melted
Coat a 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Layer one half of bread cubes in baking dish. Cream together sugar and cream cheese and drop by teaspoonfuls over bread. Layer blueberries over cream cheese. Cover blueberries with remaining bread. Sprinkle generously with cinnamon. Mix remaining ingredients and pour over bread; press bread with spatula to help soak up mixture. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Bake at 350 degrees F for 45 to 50 minutes. Serves 8.
