Blueberry Cheesecake Pull Aparts

These Blueberry Cheesecake Pull Aparts are SO delicious! How could they not be? Cheesecake, blueberries and bread - YUM! I had a hard time controlling myself around these rolls. We ate these for breakfast and dessert. I think they taste best slightly warm. I reheated leftovers in the microwave for about 7 seconds. Perfect!

I used wild blueberries in this dish because I prefer the smaller size. I found the wild blueberries in the freezer section at the grocery store. If you can't find them, or don't want to use them, you can use regular blueberries. The rolls will be equally delicious!
