Blueberry Delight Breakfast Casserole Recipe
Ahhhh, fresh blueberries. They are in season right now and the little blue bundles of joy are delicious for snacking, cooking with, baking with, and making my smoothies with. Living in Florida gives me access to all sorts of Fresh From Florida fruits and vegetables, but the blueberries are oh so yum.
Last weekend, my husband took Friday off of work, which is actually very rare for him. Getting him to take a day off is like pulling teeth sometimes! So, I wanted to make the day extra special. I grabbed some Fresh From Florida blueberries and decided to make a delicious breakfast. On a weekday! I know, I got a little crazy 😉 But this Blueberry Breakfast Casserole, or as I like to call it, Blueberry Delight Breakfast Casserole, was very easy to make and I actually made it the afternoon before, so the morning wasn’t any busier than usual. I just had to turn on the oven and pop my Blueberry Delight Breakfast in.
My friend was telling me the week before how she loved to make a blueberry casserole for special Sunday breakfasts, so I did some searching and found this recipe on the Fresh From Florida website. I made two little modifications, I did mine as an overnight bake and added the warm maple syrup when I served it. It was so good! In fact, this recipe will be added to the adult menu of Pancake Sunday! Which is saying a lot if you know about my house and Pancake Sunday – we host a big group of our friends, sometimes up to 20 people each Sunday! So, for a new menu item to make an appearance is a pretty big deal 🙂
I like this Blueberry Delight Breakfast Casserole Recipe for a few reasons:
- I love Fresh From Florida blueberries
- I can make it the day before, so in the morning all I have to do is toss it in the oven
- It’s easy to make
Now, when I make this recipe for my Pancake Sunday crew, I will obviously increase the amount of ingredients, this batch of Blueberry Breakfast Casserole will serve 4 people. My husband and I had it for breakfast 2 mornings.
