Baked French Toast!!!

Mmmm this sounds drool worthy, what do you think? I found this
recipe and it looks easy enough. I hope to make it soon. I may
tweak it a little after trying it the first time, will see.
Do you have any alternative french toast recipes, please share!

Baked French Toast
1 loaf French bread, cubed (or any kind of stale or day-old bread)
1 8-oz. package cream cheese, cut into 1-inch cubes
8 large eggs, beaten
2 1/2 C. half and half (use milk to make it even more frugal)
6 Tbsp. butter or margarine, melted and cooled
1/3 C. maple syrup

Grease a 9×13 pan. Put half of the bread crumbs in the pan, spreading out evenly. Top with cream cheese slices. Add the rest of the bread cubes. In a separate mixing bowl, combine the eggs, half and half, butter, and maple syrup. Pour over the top of the bread cubes/cream cheese. Pat everything down into the pan to ensure it all gets moistened. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sprinkle with cinnamon before placing in the oven. Bake for 45 minutes or until golden brown. Top with maple syrup as desired and enjoy!

  1. Oh I haven't made French Toast in YEARS. I'm not a breakfast person, although reading your recipe made me feel hungry. I don't dare eat anything with cream cheese, though-- I'll gain weight merely by thinking about it!


I look forward to your comments!
