You can use homestyle sliced white bread as an alternative to challah or egg bread. If the bread is fresh, leave the slices out for an hour or bake them in a 200°F (100°C) oven for 20 minutes.

MethodGrease 13- x 9-inch (3 L) baking dish with butter. Set aside.
Trim crusts from bread. Mix cream cheese with sugar; spread on half of the bread slices. Sandwich with remaining slices; cut diagonally into quarters to make triangles.
Starting in centre, arrange triangles lengthwise in prepared dish, long side down, in 3 rows, overlapping to fit.
Whisk together milk, eggs and vanilla; pour over bread mixture, spooning over any bare spots. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
Topping: Stir sugar with cinnamon; sprinkle over bread mixture. Bake in 350°F (180°C) oven until puffed and golden, about 35 minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes.
Blueberry Sauce: Meanwhile, in saucepan, combine blueberries, sugar, lemon zest and lemon juice. Whisk flour with 2 tbsp water; add to saucepan and bring to boil over medium heat.
Reduce heat and simmer, stirring often, until thickened and blueberries have broken down, about 6 minutes. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate in airtight container for up to 2 days; rewarm to serve, adding about 1 tbsp water to thin if necessary.)
Serve with stuffed toast.
