Maple Cream Cheese French Toast Casserole

Plan ahead this needs to be refrigerated for a minimum of 8 hours or overnight. I tossed the bread cubes with a couple teaspoons of cinnamon before placing in the baking dish, but that is optional, if you prefer a less sweeter taste just omit the white sugar completely --- this is *very* good!

This is a great recipe. I have made it a couple of times. I add lots of cinnamon and nutmeg, chopped walnuts, fresh apple chunks, and golden raisins. Light cream cheese and 2% milk works just fine. One of the reviews suggested adding the bread pieces to the egg/milk mixture and letting it soak a bit before moving it to the 9X13 pan. Worked GREAT!

It was delicious..... only slight change I made was last minute. Right before putting in the oven I melted 2 tablespoons of butter with a smidge of cinnamon and nutmeg an drizzled over the entire dish. My friends raved about this. Excellent recipe and super easy to follow.

This turned out better than I expected, but did make some changes from the original recipe. Instead of plain bread, I used cinnamon raison swirl bread. It gave it the punch of flavor that I think it needed. I also added a touch of nutmeg. It was great! I served it with real maple syrup. I would do this recipe again.
