Got this from January 2010 Cooking club magazine. Haven't tried it yet, but it looks good and I don't want to lose it.

This was awesome! I used mostly half and half instead of whole milk, and added 1/2 t. cinnamon and 1 t. vanilla to the egg mixture. I also only used 7 eggs, as I don't like my french toast too "eggy". I added an extra 1/4 c. maple syrup and drizzled another 1/2 cup over it before serving at a party, because I didn't want to have to put maple syrup on the side for serving. I also used half regular sugar and half brown sugar to enhance the flavors. Loved it, and am sharing the recipe now with everyone at the party that asked for it!
- 1 loaf French bread, cubed 1 1/2 inches (1 lb)
- 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, cubed
- 8 eggs
