Before you go to bed, prepare this blueberry-studded casserole by soaking thick-cut bread in custard, then wake up to a ready-to-bake breakfast tomorrow morning. A dollop of freshly whipped cream and sweetened berries finish this top-rated favorite.

The secret to Ina’s recipe is letting the slices of brioche rest in a pool of honey-vanilla custard before baking; this ensures the bread has a chance to soak up the flavor of the liquid and become moist.
