Pour the egg mixture evenly overtop; cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 6 hours, or overnight. Meanwhile, make the blueberry sauce: In a small saucepan, stir together the sugar and cornstarch until there are no more lumps. Add 1/2 cup water and bring to a simmer; cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens and bubbles. Continue to cook for a few more minutes, until the berries burst.
