  1. Slice the loaf of French bread into about 25 slices, and set aside. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, and maple syrup.
  2. Place enough bread slices in the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish to cover. Drop 2 teaspoons or so of cream cheese onto each slice. You do not need to spread the cheese. Repeat layering with bread slices and cream cheese until the dish is filled to the top. Slowly pour the egg mixture over the layers, so it doesn't run over the sides. Cover, and refrigerate 8 hours or overnight.
  3. The next morning, preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  4. Bake casserole for 45 minutes, or until set and golden brown.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

I served this at Easter brunch and my family loved it! Everyone couldn’t wait to dig in, as it looked very pretty and impressive as I took it out of the oven. It puffed up and was nice and gol...

I wish we would have read the reviews before we made this recipe...I believe it would have turned out better if we would have spread the cream cheese on the french bread. This recipe was delici...

Good, my opinion: too many eggs!! They overpowered the other flavors in many places. I'll make this again, but with 10 eggs, not 12.

I too, wish I had read the reviews prior to preparing this dish for Easter brunch. It was very mushy in the middle, too crispy around the edges and bottom and had little flavor. No one in my f...

This is good only right out of the oven and you must spread cream cheese on every slice and I also added apricot jam to every slice. This is somewhat like a bread pudding. You have to like the...
