Blueberry French Toast Casserole-Great for Christmas Morning

Day 21-Blueberry French Toast Casserole
A girlfriend of mine turned me on to this and I have made it a many times (baby showers, for the day after Thanksgiving, etc. )  It is always a hit.  It’s perfect for Christmas morning when you don’t want to cook.  You make it the day before and then just heat up in the morning.  It is super rich but very yummy. I got the exact recipe off of www.About.com
