Blueberry French Toast Bake

With all this homemade blueberry syrup and fresh blueberries in the fridge, I'm making one of our favorite breakfast-for-dinner recipes.
Blueberry French Toast Bake.
There's a long time of sitting - I'm talking HOURS - before eating, so allow LOTS of time.

Cut 8 slices of bread into ~1" chunks.

I love my pizza cutter for this part.

Uniformity is not necessary.
Toss the bread into a buttered 9"x13" dish.  I like my purple one for this.  :)

Sprinkle a large handful (or more, I like lots more) of blueberries on top.  Cube up a 8oz box of cream cheese and sprinkle half on top of the bread.
Repeat all the previous steps.  

Then get out a big bowl.  Whisk up 8 eggs.

and add 2 cups of milk.  Whisk eggs and milk together. 

Pour all the liquid over the bread and stuff.
Cover with foil and pop it in the fridge overnight or for 8-24 hours. 

About an hour and a half before you want to eat this tasty casserole, put it in the oven and bake for 350 covered about 45 minutes.  Uncover and bake another 30 minutes at 325.

 It should be puffed up and set in the center.  The top should be golden brown.

Drizzle some homemade blueberry syrup and enjoy!
