  • 10 cups Bread of Choice, cubed I prefer croissants, or whatever is around.

Blackberry & Goat Cheese Spread

  • 1-2 pints Fresh Blackberries
  • 1/4 cup Sugar
  • 5-12 ounces Soft Goat Cheese I used 10 oz
  • 1 Egg
  • 2 tbsp butter

Egg Mixture

  • 8 Eggs
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 2-1/2 cups Milk
  • 1 cup Half & Half or, sub more milk
  • 1/2 tbsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 dash Salt
  • Cinnamon/Nutmeg to taste, optional


  • Start by preparing your blackberries by topping with 1/4 cup of sugar in large mixing bowl, to start breaking them down. Check back and stir them up as you continue
  • Grease a 9x13 inch pan and chop your bread into 1/2" - 1" cubes until you have enough to fill the pan loosely to the top (about 10 cups but adjust as needed.)
  • Preheat the oven to 325 F.
  • Prepare the Blackberry and Goat Cheese Spread by adding the remaining ingredients and combining well either by spoon mixing (if you desire chunks of cheese and berries) or with a mixer (for a smoother texture.) Spread on top of the bread.
  • Prepare the Egg Mixture by combining all of the ingredients in a large bowl and whisking together until combined. Slowly pour into the pan, using a spoon to poke holes through the Blackberry and Goat Cheese spread, allowing the mixture to seep through.
  • Cook in the middle of the oven, until the custard starts to solidify and rise, about 50-60 minutes. Eat warm (great topped with a bit of half & half) or cooled.
