The recipes left out one critical preparation step for this dish. You MUST let it set for at least a few hours (better overnight!) before you bake it! So pour the egg mixture over the bread, cream cheese & fruit, cover & refrigerate. Then bake covered at 350 for 30 minutes, remove the cover and bake for an additional 30 minutes. I used frozen strawberries, so I had to bake an additional 10 minutes to accommodate the extra liquid.

Also, a little hit of maple syrup made all the difference if you want some sweetness. I thought this was delicious!
