Yummy yummu! I made this for brunch and it was a hit! The only thing I want to specify is to use fresh blueberries if you can get ahold of them. I couldn't find any, so I had to use frozen and it was a little more watery than expected but the bread soaked it right up. The syrup is delicious, you may want to add an extra T. of cornstarch if you are using frozen blueberries because of the excess water. Otherwise, awesome and I will definitely make this a regular!

I've made this a few times from an almost identical recipe from Tast of Home. the only thing i changeis reduce the cream cheese to one packageas i find 2 is a bit too much. I like it with pure maple syrup or syrup made from canned blueberries and thicken it myself.It's easy to tweak this recipe to your personal taste.

We really enjoyed this. But you definitely need the sauce because the base strata is a bit bland - there's little sugar or seasoning in it. I did use frozen berries and just gently pressed paper towels on them while in the strainer which helped out immensely with any over-watering concerns. Next time I will mke extra sauce because it's easy and delicious!
