My dear friend Suzanne fixed this for our Quilt Guild Retreat this past month. It was Fabulous! I use that word a lot but it really was. My children love French toast and so do I. I may post how they make that but here is how we adapted Suzanne's recipe and made it our own.
4-6 sliced of whole wheat bread cubed or torn in chunks 1 pkg 8 oz cream cheese (optional) 6 eggs 1 cup milk sprinkle of cinnamon and/or nutmeg pinch of salt brown sugar or Sucanat
Butter a 9"x9" baking dish Place half the cubed bread in the dish. Cut the cream cheese over the bread. Cover with remaining bread cubes. Mix eggs, milk, salt, and cinnamon or nutmeg together in a blender. Pour over bread. Sprinkle the top of the bread mixture with Sucanat or brown sugar. Cover with plastic wrap or foil and refrigerate overnight. In he morning, preheat the oven to 350 deg F. Bake for 45 - 60 minutes. Serve warm with maple syrup, powdered sugar or just the way it is.
