Make this blueberry strata for brunch it will be a hit with all parties! The only thing I want to specify is to use fresh blueberries if you can get a hold of them.
1 1/2 loaves of white bread
2 pints of blueberries
12 eggs scrambled
1 quart of heavy cream
1 cup of sugar
1 tbs of vanilla
2 tsp sugar
Making blueberry strata is close to a bread pudding and is rather simple.
First, preheat your oven to 350° F.
Next, cut the bread in pieces and place in a standard sized baking pan, roughly 9″ x 13X.
In a large bowl, place all ingredients, other than the 2 tsp of sugar, and toss. Once all is fully mixed pour over the bread.
Place in the preheated oven and bake until firm to touch. You can, and should, do the toothpick test. Before taking the strata out, push a toothpick into the middle. If it comes out clean and the strata is firm, it is done.
Take out of the oven. Sprinkle the 2 tsp of sugar on the top. You can serve warm or cold.
If you want to kick it up a bit, you can add a blueberry syrup.
1 1/2 cups white sugar
3 tbs cornstarch
1 1/2 cups water
1 1/2 cups fresh blueberries
1 1/2 tbs of butter
Combine sugar, cornstarch, and water in a saucepan. Bring mixture to a boil over high heat; cook for 5 minutes. Pour in the 1 1/2 cups blueberries; continue cooking for 10 minutes. Remove from heat, and stir in butter. Serve warm over slices of the strata.
