Stuffed French Toast

I don’t really consider myself a “good” cook…You know, the kind of person who can just whip up something tasty at a moment’s notice with only the most basic ingredients…  Oh, I can read a recipe, and (usually) get a decent meal on the table, but gourmet, it is not!  So I never intended for this to become a recipe blog!  But, since this time of year, there are always lots of parties and potlucks on the calendar, I thought it would be fun to post a few of my favorite dishes.  You may notice that most of them will be of the breakfast/brunch or dessert variety.  I sure hope no one is on a low-carb or low-sugar diet!


I got this recipe from my friend, Michelle.  And, I love it!  I brought it to our Bible Study Christmas party this morning, and it was a hit!  And, I received quite a few requests for the recipe!  (So, here you go, ladies!)  This one is particularly great, for breakfast or brunch events (or Christmas morning!), because it is put together the night before, and in the morning, all you have to do is pop it in the oven to bake (while opening gifts on Christmas morning, maybe?).   




Stuffed French Toast

1 lb (16 oz) loaf French bread, cubed
8 oz. package cream cheese (the block works better than the kind in the tub)
8 eggs
2 ½ cups milk
6 Tbsp butter (melted)
¼ cup maple syrup


Butter 9×13 baking dish.  Tear or cut bread into cubes.  Place half the bread into baking dish.  Cut cream cheese into cubes, and place on top of bread.  Layer remaining bread cubes on top.  


In a large bowl, mix together eggs, milk, butter, and maple syrup.  Pour over bread and cream cheese and refrigerate (covered) overnight. 


In the morning, or before baking, make Apple Cider Syrup (click on link, or see recipe in post below).  Pour over bread mixture and bake at 350° for 45 minutes to 1 hour.  (Watch it carefully in the last 10 to 15 minutes of baking.  Mine is usually ready after about 45 minutes of baking.  If I let it go much longer, it would probably burn.)


Serve with more warm Apple Cider Syrup (click on link, or see recipe in post below).
