When I think of breakfast casseroles I think of comfort food and lazy weekends.

This casserole is made quickly the night before then baked for about 45 minutes the next morning.  Even though it does take 45 minutes to bake I think it makes for an easy breakfast.  A lot of times I get other things done in those 45 minutes when I would have been standing there at the stove cooking breakfast!  Win-win for me 🙂

I made this breakfast quicker to assemble by just layering the bread with the cream cheese and berries instead of cubing it.  This is also a double duty purpose because it makes a more impressive looking breakfast when plated.

Just lay down 6 slices of bread, spread that wonderful cream cheese on top, sprinkle with some fresh juicy berries of choice ( I used strawberries, blackberries and blueberries here but any combo will work.) then top with the remaining bread slices.  Next, is that wonderful custard made with eggs and half and half.  You could use whole milk as well but I don’t recommend using low fat milk because it won’t give you that wonderfully thick custard.  And that’s it.  It takes about 10 minutes to put together then toss it in the refrigerator to let it do it’s thing before baking that next morning.  It’s perfect for company, Christmas morning breakfast or even just casual weekends.

    Oh this looks so delicious!! I love that you make it the night before because I am definitely NOT a morning person! And 45 minutes gives me plenty of time for lots of coffee 😉 I think my daughter would love this, she is obsessed with cream cheese! I think I’m going to make this for breakfast this weekend!

    If I bake right after assembling, do you think it would taste the same?

      If you could let it sit for at least 20-30 minutes so the bread can soak up as much of the egg custard as possible. That’s the main reason for preparing it the night before. 🙂 Hope you enjoy it!!!
