      Instructions
      Blueberry French Toast Bake
      1. In a medium bowl whisk together the eggs, milk, maple syrup, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt.
      2. Generously butter an 8"x 8" pan. Spread half of the bread cubes evenly in the pan and dot with half of the cream cheese chunks. Sprinkle with 1/2 of the blueberries. Repeat with remaining bread, cream cheese and blueberries. Pour egg mixture evenly over bread. Cover and refrigerate 8 hours or overnight.
      3. Preheat oven to 375℉. Bake uncovered for 40-45 minutes until golden and set in the centre. Remove from oven and serve with balsamic blueberry sauce or maple syrup.
      Balsamic Blueberry Sauce
      1. In a medium saucepan combine the blueberries, sugar, and 3 tbsp of water. Cook over medium heat until simmering and the sugar has dissolved, approximately 10 minutes. Stir together the cornstarch and remaining 3 tbsp of water. Stir into blueberries and heat to a full simmer. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla and balsamic vinegar. Serve warm with french toast or pancakes.
      Recipe Notes

      Balsamic Blueberry Sauce can be made a day ahead with the french toast and rewarmed for serving, or cooked while the Blueberry French Toast  is baking. I made the french toast in muffin tins for presentation, however they were fussy to assemble and difficult to remove from tins.  A single 8"x8" pan is recommended.
