Stuffed French Toast

The Menu:
Stuffed French Toast

The Original Recipe:
I was given this recipe from a friend of my mom. I haven't made it yet, but it will be our breakfast on Christmas morning, so I thought I would share. I don't think you could go wrong with this dish at all. I have made other dishes similar, but the addition of the cream cheese to this has intrigued me. I cannot wait for breakfast in the morning. Merry Christmas Everyone!!


STUFFED FRENCH TOAST


8-12 slices bread, cubed, without crust

1-1/2 packages cream cheese, softened

1 dozen eggs

2 cups milk

1/3 cup maple syrup


• Cube bread and put into 9 x 13” dish.

• Cube cheese and put over bread cubes

• Beat eggs, and add milk & syrup

• Pour mixture over bread and cream cheese cubes.

• Cover with plastic wrap

• Refrigerate overnight

• Next morning, bake at 375 for 45 minutes or until done

• Serve with syrup or fruit

• Variations: Use diet bread, lite cream cheese, 1% milk,

Egg beaters, light syrup

The Verdict:
Well, I hadn't had the chance to eat today. I woke up at 2 am with the lovely stomach flu on Christmas Day. My poor 5 year old did as well.  However, the rest of the family said they loved this. I used 14 slices of bread and only 9 eggs, and it apparently turned out wonderful. I couldn't get a picture, nor could I be in the same room as the lovely smell coming from it. What a day!

***I made this dish recently for a church breakfast, and it was delicious!! I recommend using some syrup or thin out some jam to pour over top! YUM! It was really good! I would make it again!
