Blueberry White Chocolate Cream Cheese French Toast Casserole

  Now THAT is a title if I ever saw one!  I found this recipe on my cousin, Cassi’s blog over a year go and have been meaning to make it!  When Aldi’s had their blueberries on sale, I knew it was time.   Here’s the kicker though……

Do you know those new Cream Cheese Indulgence from Philadelphia? 

I had a coupon for one this week, so I bought it and had NO idea how I was going to use it.
Then it HIT me! 

   I was going to make Cassi’s French Toast Casserole, but I was going to replace one cream cheese with THIS………..IMG_1553

Oh my yummy goodness!

  1. Oh my, oh my, oh my!!! Is this ever going to be on the bed and breakfast menu the next time we feed a crowd!! What an inspiration to use the white chocolate cream cheese indulgence!

  2. This is brilliant!! I saw your blog title pop up on Facebook this morning and thought “Oh, that sounds kind of like one we have made before.” Lol. I love the idea of adding white chocolate! I didn’t think there was any better combination than cream cheese and blueberries… but I was wrong! I can’t wait to make it this way next time! :)

I adore hearing from you, comment away! :)
