I used challah bread with raisins (since it's Rosh Hashana and it's everywhere). I sliced it last night and left it on a rack to dry. I didn't have enough strawberry preserves, so I mixed half strawberry and half cherry. I used low-fat cream cheese and added a splash of half-and-half just to loosen it up. It made WAY more filling than I needed for 8 slices of bread (four sandwiches), but that's okay, because it's YUMMY. I added a spoonful of powdered sugar, and only used a splash of half-and-half (maybe 2-3 tbsp) instead of the milk with the eggs, and still spilled a little down the drain. I ate it as is; DBF still wanted syrup.
