Baked French Toast Recipe

We start with two loaves of Cinnamon Bread. Do not be concern if you cannot locate Cinnamon Bread. Substitute a thick bread and add more cinnamon to the egg and milk mixture. Now let’s get started. Using a knife, remove the crust from the bread slices. Keep the two loaves of bread separate. Take one loaf of bread slices and spread softened cream cheese on them. Top with a slice of bread from the other loaf. Cut each cream cheese bread sandwiches into four cubes. 

Now it is time to make the egg and milk mixture. Whisk together eggs, milk, half and half, vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a large bowl. Dip the cream cheese bread sandwiches cubes into the egg and milk mixture until moist. Place in a glass pan, sprayed with non-stick spray, making two layers. Pour any remaining liquid over bread. Cover and refrigerate overnight. 

When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees and remove casserole from the refrigerator. At this time prepare your crumble mixture. In a small pan, melt the butter adding brown sugar, Maple Syrup and chopped pecans. Place the mixture evenly over the french toast. Bake about 40-minutes or until a knife comes out relatively clean.  Add any additional toppings when you plate it for breakfast! Refrigerate or freeze any leftovers.
