Maple French Toast Bake

This yummy French toast casserole is a breeze to whip up the night before a busy morning. My family loves the richness it gets from cream cheese and maple syrup. —Cindy Steffen, Cedarburg, Wisconsin

    I end up spreading the cream cheese on the bread (cinnamon raisin), then cubing and placing the bread. To ensure all the bread pieces “soak”, I smash the contents down with a flat spatula. Family favorite!

    I cut the recipe in half for just my husband and I. I did mix a little sugar to the cream cheese and dolloped it on and added a little cinnamon to the egg mixture. Turned out good and will most likely make again.

    This was very good. I used gluten free bread for our family. The only thing I would do differently next time is mix all the bread with the wet ingredients and then put half in then the cream cheese then the other half. I ended up with some burnt pieces on the top that did not get completely covered by the wet mixture. I will make again though. The flavor was good and was very easy.

    I use cinnamon swirl bread and my family loves it. Whenever I serve it, people ask for the recipe. Definitely a hit with us!

    This recipe was ok when I made it according to the directions, but excellent when I beat the cream cheese and added sugar to it. I just dropped spoonfulls of the sweetened cream cheese and it made a huge difference. I also added some cinnamon to the egg mixture. The family loves it!
