Pictured at left is Blueberry Strata, a favorite of many guests, and what we served this morning for breakfast at the Williams House. The recipe follows and can also be found in the B&B Cookbook that we sell in our Inn gift shop.
1 loaf French Bread cut into 1″ cubes
2 (8oz.) package cream cheese cubed
1 cup fresh blueberries, washed
12 large eggs
1/3 cup maple syrup
2 cups milk
Grease a 9″ x 13″ baking dish. Add 1/2 bread, then scatter cream cheese and blueberries over bread. Top with remaining bread. Combine eggs, syrup, and milk in separate bowl and pour over bread. Press down to soak all of the bread in the egg mixture. Cover with foil and refrigerate overnight.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake covered with foil 30 minutes. Uncover and bake 30 minutes more. Let stand for 5 minutes before cutting into squares. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Garnish with fresh blueberries and a fresh cut strawberry. Serves twelve. Pour ribbons of maple syrup for added sweetness.
