    kda949's Note:

    Great for Christmas morning as you make it the night before and pop it in the oven for about an hour. It's really yummy and SO EASY! There are a few other french toast casserole dishes here, but none quite like this one. My friend Kathy made this for a ladies brunch/book club and everyone loved it. I had to have the recipe!

      Made this for Easter brunch '09. It was a huge HIT! I added some fresh blueberries on top, and it was delicious, beautiful and festive looking! I also used the "real" syrup. Lots of $$ but, wonderful!

      My oven cooks hot - so the top was crunchy and hard, but the bottom was great. I used more cinnamon and sugar - probably close to triple the called for amounts. I would put the sugar and cinnamon in the "middle" with the cream cheese. I also think I should have "packed" down the bread more. Mine didn't really look like the picture with the recipe. Good flavor though - not too sweet.

      This was easy to make and very good. I actually liked it cold later in the day more than when it was right out of the oven! I followed the recipe exactly and the only change I would make would be to either omit the cream cheese or cut it into thin slices rather than cubes. It would have been better had it been more spread out in the dish. However, I definitely liked the recipe and I will surely make it again.
