Instructions Checklist
  • Place half of the bread cubes in a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking pan. Sprinkle cheese on top of bread cubes. Top with 1 cup blueberries and remaining bread. In a large bowl, beat together egg substitute, milk, half-and-half, and maple syrup. Pour egg mixture over bread. Cover pan, and refrigerate overnight.

  • The next morning, remove pan from refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Cover pan with aluminum foil, and bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes. Uncover pan, and bake for an additional 30 minutes, until golden brown and center is set.

  • Meanwhile, prepare the blueberry sauce. In a saucepan, combine sugar, cornstarch, and water. Boil over medium heat for 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Stir in blueberries, and reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer 8 to 10 minutes, or until the berries have burst. Stir in butter, and serve the sauce over squares of strata.

This was a great recipe! I made it for Christmas Day for the man and I. I didn't make the sauce, i just made my own sauce with frozen mixed berries on the stove with a teaspoon of maple surup (we're not sweet sauce type people) and it was AMAIZING! Only downfall was that my boyfriend said it didn't re-heat very well the next day - blueberries and cream cheese do not make friends the next day. Still, totally worth it - delicious! Read More

Absolutely wonderful! Our favorite! It's sweet, but not too sweet, and the cream cheese adds a creamy texture that is just divine! The sauce was great too, not too sweet as I thought it might be, and was a very nice compliment to the dish. We will have this many more times! Read More
