Everyone has their own marker for when summer is here — and I mean, like, really here. For me, it’s the arrival of blueberry season. As soon as baskets of plump, ripe blueberries hit the market, I know summer is in full swing. Even though I should know better by now, the start of blueberry season never happens quite as early as I expect. So by the time I do get my hands on sweet summer blueberries, I’m ready with a long list of all the things I want to make.

Quintessential summer desserts, like jammy blueberry pie, blueberry crisp, or even easy milkshakes, will always land on the must-make list, but breakfast treats, including blueberry muffins, tender scones, and sweet breakfast casseroles, can just as deliciously help you power through your berry haul.

Here are 31 must-make blueberry recipes to help you decide what to make with blueberries this summer.
