Blueberry French Toast Casserole

Blueberry French Toast Casserole #festfoods I was on the hunt for the perfect Christmas morning breakfast, and came across a recipe for Blueberry French Toast Casserole, which is perfect to pull out of the fridge and in to the oven for an effortless family meal!  It provides a protein-packed punch with cottage cheese and eggs, hearty whole wheat bread, sweet and juicy blueberries and is topped with crunchy almonds.  {Bonus: This dish is like a cross between breakfast and dessert, so you really can’t go wrong making it for the family!}


I used frozen blueberries for this recipe because they are just as nutritious as fresh {and so convenient}!  And I chose a hearty loaf of bread from our scratch bakery as the base of the casserole. Blueberry French Toast Casserole And I know you find it intriguing that we are using Daisy® Low Fat Cottage Cheese in our French Toast Casserole, but it adds a richness and creamy texture to the dish that cannot be accomplished otherwise! Blueberry French Toast Casserole To get started, tear the bread into 1-inch cubes.  Mix with the blueberries and place in a greased baking dish. Blueberry French Toast Casserole For the “sauce”, we will start with the cottage cheese.  Place it in a blender and puree until smooth.  {We don’t want clumps!}  Mix with eggs, sugar and extracts. Blueberry French Toast Casserole Pour the “sauce” over the bread cubes/blueberries and mix until well combined.  Top with slivered almonds {Ahhh, the crunch is going to be fantastic}!  Cover with aluminum foil and place in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour, preferably overnight {so the bread can soak up all the juices}. Blueberry French Toast Casserole Place covered casserole in a preheated 375°F oven for 20 minutes.  Uncover and bake for an additional 20 minutes, until puffy and golden brown.  Serve warm with a drizzle of real maple syrup.  {Okay, maybe I went a little heavy on the syrup, but it is just so good!} Blueberry French Toast Casserole

Recipe adapted from Daisy®


1 loaf hearty, whole wheat bread (or gluten free bread for gluten free)

1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries

½ cup Daisy® Low Fat Cottage Cheese

6 whole eggs

2 ½ cups skim milk

2 Tbsp. granulated sugar

1 tsp. vanilla extract

¼ tsp. almond extract (optional)

½ cup sliced almonds

¼ cup maple syrup  


  1. Lightly coat a 13x9-inch baking dish with non-stick spray. Tear bread into 1-inch cubes. Mix bread cubes and blueberries and spread mixture evenly in the baking dish.
  2. Blend the cottage cheese in a blender, food processor or using a hand mixer. When there is a smooth consistency, blend in the eggs and milk.  Mix in the sugar and extracts. Pour the liquid mixture over the top of the bread.  Top with sliced almonds.
  3. For best results, cover the casserole with aluminum foil and let it sit for at least an hour (or overnight) in refrigerator.
