How to Make It

  1. Cut the bread into 1-in cubes; place half in a greased 13- by- 9-by- 2-inch baking dish.
  2. Cut cream cheese into 1-inch cubes; place over bread. Top with blueberries and remaining bread. In a large bowl, beat eggs. Whisk in milk and syrup, blending well. Pour egg mixture over bread mixture.
