On Sunday night, my sweet cousin Sue and her wonderful 
husband John came by to spend the night on their way to Houston.  
Of course, I wanted to cook for them and 
Sue ordered my Tomato Gravy & Biscuits. 
Did I stop there??  No!  
I kinda overthought the Tomato Gravy 
and turned it into a bunch–
at night–
in our Pj’s 🙂  
We had much fun, ate great food and talked until 
we had to make ourselves go to bed!  
Today I’m sharing my Blackberry French Toast Casserole 
that we baked while they were here.  
After the first bite, their question was, 
“Is this on your recipe blog?”  
“No,” I said, “but it’s coming!”  🙂  
It’s great because you can make it the night before, 
stick it in the refrigerator and cook it the next morning.  
Invite some friends and family over in their Pajamas and enjoy!

Blackberry French Toast Casserole
4 – 6 large croissants
5 eggs
1 cup heavy whipping ccream
3/4 cup brown sugar 
1 tsp cinnamon
2 teaspoons vanilla
8 ounces cream cheese, cut into cubes
1/2 pint fresh blackberries
1 small jar blackberry jam –I used Smucker’s Simply Fruit
Preheat oven to 375degrees. 
Melt the blackberry jam over low heat, 
stirring until smooth.  
In medium or large bowl, beat eggs with 
whipping cream, brown sugar, cinnamon and vanilla. 
Spray 8 x 8 baking dish with nonstick spray.   
 
Tear each croissant into about 5 or 6 pieces and place half in dish. 
Top with cream cheese cubes and blackberries.
  
Pour melted jam on next and top with remaining croissant pieces.
Pour egg/sugar mixture over the top and cover with foil.  
Refrigerate overnight.
Bake at 375 for 35-40 minutes, with foil on.  
Take foil off and bake 5-10 minutes more until 
fluffy and golden brown.
 
The lovely ingredients:
 
 
Melt the jam over low heat…
 
 
Tear the croissants into pieces 
(while you’re trying not to eat the pieces…sigh…
it’s not just me that has that problem is it??)
 
 
Place 1/2 into the baking dish and hide the other half 
from yourself until later…
warning, you will need the other half! 
 
 
Top with the cream cheese cubes…
 
 
Look at those beautiful blackberries! 
 
 
Put those berries on next over the cream cheese and 
pour on the melted jam….
 
 
Wowzers!
 
 
Put the remaining croissants on next…
Whip the eggs with a fork…
 
 
Add the whipping cream…
 
 
Add the cinnamon…
 
 
Vanilla…
 
 
and the brown sugar…
 
Stir it really well…
 
 
Pour the milk and egg mixture over the casserole…
 
 
Incredible! 
 
 
Cover it with foil and refrigerator overnight…
 
 
Follow those baking instructions above and 
let stand about 10 minutes before serving.  
It will look like this wonderful yummy goodness on your plate!
