This decadent dish is similar to a bread pudding. Challah bread is cubed and layered with Wisconsin havarti cheese. After it’s baked with a sweet egg mixture, top it with warm blueberry sauce.
1 16-oz. challah or French bread loaf, cubed
1 8-oz. package havarti cheese, cut into thin slices
6 large eggs
4 cups milk
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon, divided
2 tablespoons melted butter
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
1 12-oz. jar blueberry preserves
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Arrange half of bread cubes in lightly buttered 13x9x2-inch baking pan. Top evenly with havarti; top with remaining bread cubes.
- Whisk together eggs, milk, sugar, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, butter, and maple syrup in large mixing bowl; pour over bread mixture, pressing bread cubes to absorb egg mixture. Sprinkle remaining cinnamon over the top. Cover baking pan with foil.
- Bake 30 minutes. Uncover and bake 30 more minutes or until lightly browned and set. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
- Stir together blueberries and blueberry preserves in a small saucepan over low heat until warm. Serve blueberry sauce over French toast.
