This is a scrumptious casserole of bread, cream cheese, eggs, and milk. Tastes just like regular French toast but it's made the night before and baked in the oven. This is not really sweet so you might like more maple syrup with it.

Directions

  1. Place bread cubes in a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking pan.
  2. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese with an electric mixer at medium speed until smooth. Add eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Stir in milk, half and half, maple syrup, and vanilla until mixture is smooth. Pour cream cheese mixture over the bread; cover, and refrigerate overnight.
  3. The next morning, remove souffle from refrigerator, and let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  4. Bake, uncovered, for 30 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Sprinkle with confectioners' sugar, and serve warm.

Try this; it's much easier and includes butter--which will add flavor and depth to this recipe: In a SMALL bowl, stir 4 OZ of softened cream cheese, 1/2 stick butter, and 1/4 c syrup. Then simply microwave for a minute. Pour over bread cubes (make sure pan is generously buttered so that souffle will "rise." I've used all kinds of bread). Combine six eggs, 3/4 t vanilla, and 1 1/2 c half-and-half. Pour over the top, sprinkle cinnamon over it, and refrigerate overnight. Cook for an hour. Virtually same ingredients, different preparation--more flavor!

Let me just start by saying that I know zip about cooking and/or eggs. I went to the store to buy eggs for this thing, and figured, hey I'll just get the jumbo size (the idea being that bigger is, naturally, better). Then I proceeded to construct the souffle following the directions to the letter. As it was baking, I finally got around to reading other people's reviews of it. Oh, a lot of people like it. But everyone who did changed the recipe. "Six jumbo eggs were all I needed. Heck, four or five would suit you just fine." As I'm reading through these the thought staring me in the face is "My souffle is going to suck." As serendipity would have it, it did not in fact suck. It was actually quite good. My company was pleased with it. I have seen others here say that it was too gooey or some such. I did not find that to be the case. It was warm and soft for breakfast. Later in the day we ate it cold and it was great---very much like a cheese danish. How versatile! From breakfast to dessert. And the moral of the story is: Leap before you look. Thank you.

Delicious for brunch! My kids don't want regular french toast anymore. To avoid sogginess, I bake it (covered) for 30 minutes and then remove the cover and bake 15 minutes more. Yum!
