Recipe by Colby's Mom
This is my favorite recipe to serve Christmas morning. You prepare it the night before, so it is very easy. This recipe calls for Blueberry pie filling, but you could substitute any other fruit pie filling flavor if you prefer.
- 1 loaf white bread, cut into 1 inch squares
- 1 (21 ounce) can blueberry pie filling
- 8 eggs
- 2 cups half-and-half
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1⁄2 cup soft butter
- 1 cup brown sugar
