Homemade Blueberry Sauce
The recipe doesn’t have a lot of ingredients and will come together quickly. You can definitely begin making this while you let the blueberry casserole bake and serve warm. If you want it hot, begin cooking it about halfway through the casserole baking.
You can make this recipe with fresh or frozen blueberries. It will take a little longer for the blueberries to cook if they are frozen (because they have to thaw), but it works just the same.
You can now put this on your warm blueberry French toast casserole. Or wait for it to cool to serve as an ice cream topping or in yogurt.
