Ingredients

  • 10 cups brioche bread torn into bite-sized cubes
  • 2 cups blueberries
  • 8 oz. cream cheese room temperature
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4 cups half and half
  • 1 Tbsp. vanilla extract
  • zest of 2 lemons

Instructions

  • Coat a 9x13 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Arrange the bread cubes and blueberries evenly in the baking dish (you want there to be blueberries in every bite).
  • In a large bowl, whisk the eggs and sugar together. Add the cream cheese, half and half, vanilla and lemon zest and whisk to combine. (The cream cheese will still be chunky.)
  • Pour the egg mixture evenly over the bread and blueberries. Cover with plastic wrap and weigh down with another baking dish. Refrigerate at least one hour, up to overnight.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Uncover the bread pudding and bake for 55-60 minutes, until center is set. Let sit for 20 minutes before serving.
