Great idea! I made these for breakfast on the 4th of July, and they were a hit! I did add a little bit of nutmeg to the egg mixture, as we like that flavor in our french toast, and used cinnamon bread. I do think the servings and measurements are off. As written, this recipe makes WAY more than 8 slices of french toast. As I was putting together the egg mixture, I thought 2 eggs and 2 cups of milk sounded like a lot for just 8 slices, so I cut it in half. Boy am I glad I did! I had just enough for 8 slices! Had I followed the recipe exactly, I'd have needed to use 16 slices just to use up the egg mixture. With only two adults and a toddler to feed, I didn't need that much. I wish I'd thought to cut back on the cream cheese mixture too. A whole package of cream cheese and 2 cups of sugar made a lot. I now have a lot of leftover icing to use up . . . but I also have a lot of fresh strawberries and blueberries to use up, so I may just buy another loaf of bread and make this again tomorrow! So, if you need only 8 servings, halve everything but the berries and bread. If you need 16 servings, use the recipe as is, but double the amount of berries and bread. Thanks for sharing!

This was awesome! I hate to say that I changed the recipe a tad, but I did. I'm pregnant and wanted more protein so I used 6 eggs and approximately 1 cup of milk. Also, not a huge sweet tooth, so I halved the cream cheese & sugar part. Thank you for sharing!

While my family loved this recipe....but it needs some big time changes. Because they had the finished product of me revamping the recipe. I used fresh strawberries and blueberries in this recipe, so I actually had to add 2 tbsp of brown sugar to have juice with the fruit. Not really a big deal. The cream cheese mixture tasted wonderful, but was too thick to spread on to the french toast when it was done, I would recommend thinning it a bit with milk or totally adding the fruit mixture to it. Because my family actually went and grabbed syrup to add to their plate to make it just a bit more spreadable to every bite. But my biggest issue and frustrating part of the dish over all, was the liquid mixture for the french toast. There was way to much milk in the mixture. The recipe calls for thick bread, meaning to me, Texas Toast size bread. I followed the instructions and when I placed each piece on to the griddle even after melting butter, the bread became very goopy, sticky and wouldn't come up off the pan. I even tasted it and it just tasted like soggy milk bread. The vanilla and cinnamon flavor was totally lost in the french toast and it was quite bland. And after dipping the 8 slices in, it still had loads of liquid that remained. So I added more vanilla and cinnamon and 2 additional eggs, which totally helped save the rest of my liquid and remake the french toast, I tossed 10 pieces of Texas Toast. The concept was good, but the execution lacked.
