Place half of the bread cubes into a greased 13x9 pan & place cream cheese on top. Top w/ blueberries & remaining bread. In a large bowl,
beat eggs well, Add milk & syrup & mix. Pour over bread mixture. Cover & chill 8 hours or overnight. Remove from fridge 30 min. before baking.

It really is -
it's also so easy for entertaining. One time I made it for some friends for our "girls weekend getaway" - there is no praise higher than a bunch of happy moms!
