    Looks great. Impressive cook.
    I was expecting either a whipped cream or vanilla ice cream topping-guess that's round two.   B)

    The plumbing remodel was quite impressive, this beats that in many ways.  Nice!

    @JohnInCarolina, @lousubcap, @Botch, @dbCooper - thank you all for your comments. I got this recipe at an Eggfest a few years ago from The Queen of Green-Marcia Simmons, of Clearwater, Fl. Her casserole was always a hit at the Florida Eggfest, even if the proportions were smaller than my serving this morning. Sort of the reason I grabbed the recipe!

    How about the recipe.  I'm about 4 weeks out for my blue berry row to take off. That dish looks great

    @fishlessman - hope you have enough berries for this casserole from your row of plants. Also, that compote works well over Vanilla ice cream.

    Local Florida BlueBerry French Toast Casserole

    (The Queen of Green-Marcia Simmons, Clearwater, Fl) 

    Ingredients for Casserole


    • 1  Loaf of day old french bread, cut into 1 inch squares
    • 2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, cut into 1 inch cubes
    • 2 cups of Fresh Blueberries
    • 12 eggs beaten
    • 2 cups of milk
    • 1 teaspoon of vanilla 
    • 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg
    • 1/4 teaspoon of mace
    • 1/2 cup maple syrup

    Ingredients for Blueberry Compote Topping


    • 1 cup of sugar
    • 2 tablespoons of cornstarch
    • 1 cup of water
    • 2 cups of fresh blueberries
    • 1 tablespoon of butter

    Instructions


    1. Lightly grease a 9x13” pan suitable for the grill, or line an aluminum half pan with parchment paper.
    2. Arrange 1/2 of the bread cubes in the dish and top with the cream cheese cubes. Sprinkle 2 cups of blueberries over cream cheese and top with the remaining bread cubes.
    3. In a separate bowl, mix the eggs, milk, vanilla, nutmeg, mace, and maple syrup. Pour  the mixture over the bread. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
    4. In the morning, preheat Big Green Egg for indirect cook at 350 degrees. While BGE is heating up take casserole from the refrigerator and allow it to come to room temperature for up to 30 minutes.
    5. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake for 25 to 30 minutes until the center is firm to the touch and the top is browned.
    6. While the casserole is cooking mix the water, sugar, and cornstarch in a saucepan. Bring it to a boil stirring constantly and cook for 3 to 4 minutes.
    7. Add the two cups of blueberries to the water, sugar, cornstarch mixture and reduce the heat to a simmer for 10 minutes. When the berries burst, add the butter.
    8. Pour the compote over the casserole, serve, and enjoy.
    Thanks,. I get enough that a neighbors friend makes wine and it still makes for too much.  I have several types of high bush along the river and two native strains that are all over the yard. the person that makes the wine shows up with a five gallon bucket

    @GrateEggspectations thank you - @fishlessman will have berries in about 4 weeks and he lives a bit further south than you so I was wondering how long till you can get fresh blue berries to make this dish. Sent you a PM.

    I'd like to try this too, sadly August 1st is our normal picking window here, and we are way behind so far this year. Opening walleye season tomorrow, and some of the lakes are still iced up!
