6 T butter, melted
1/4 cup real maple syrup
Cut French bread into cubes, place half the cubes into a 13 X 9 inch baking pan that has been sprayed with PAM. Top with the cubed cheese and the frozen blueberries. Top with remaining cubes. Combine the eggs, half and half , maple syrup and melted butter in large bowl, mix well. Pour egg mixture evenly over the cubes. Cover with plastic wrap and press down gently.
