This is truly the most heavenly blueberry croissant breakfast treat {or dessert}!
This dish is buttery from the rich flavor of the croissants. The blueberries add a sweet freshness {I’ve used both fresh & frozen… and both were equally good}. The cream cheese filling makes the bread pudding taste almost like a danish! It’s warm, gooey, moist, and so rich… but in the best possible way!

    Variation:
    Instead of baking in a square pan, you can also bake individually. Place croissant pieces evenly in 8-10 {1/2-cup} ramekins; sprinkle with blueberries and pour cream cheese mixture evenly over croissant pieces. Let stand for at least 20 minutes. Sprinkle each with topping mixture {optional}. Bake at 350°F for 20 to 25 minutes or until set in center and golden brown.
