    reen31's Note:

    This is a simple French Toast that everyone loves for Brunch on New Years' Day. I use whatever bread I have on hand, but I really like crusty Italian bread, cubed.

      This was quite good. I had a few problems though, and I am not sure if it's because I cut the ingredients in half (for just me and my 2 kids), or if I did something else wrong. But the bread was still pretty dry after baking, and the cream cheese didn't really melt much but stayed in cubes, even after the 40 minutes of baking. But even so, this is quite a tasty breakfast dish. It's quite good fresh out of the oven as is, but it's even better with a little maple syrup drizzled on top. Made for Spring 2011 Pick-A-Chef cooking event.

      Nice variation on french toast! I used gluten-free bread and served with maple syrup. Thanks for sharing! PAC Spring '11

      I cut this recipe in half for the 2 of us & we thoroughly enjoyed this French toast, with my other half using a pure maple syrup, while I was very satisfied with a recipe for Dutch honey that I found! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed for one of my adopted chefs in this Spring's Pick A Chef event]
