stuffed french toast
cream cheese stuffed french toast
16 slices bread with crust
1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese
1 dozen eggs*
2 cups milk
1/3 cup pure maple syrup*
Cut bread into cubes and place half of mixture in 9 x 14 inch casserole dish. Cube cream cheese and put on top of bread, add remaining bread.
Whip eggs, milk and syrup together; pour over entire area. Cover with plastic and let sit overnight in refrigerator. Remove plastic for baking. Bake at 375 degrees for 45 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before serving. Add additional syrup if desired. Dust with powered sugar.
*As an aside, I used 7 white eggs and 6 brown eggs ~ my baker's dozen is always 13; it goes back to boiling eggs during Easter ~ an egg for Jesus.
*Pure maple syrup is divine and very healthy ~ worth the extra pennies.
Happiness is not in our circumstance, but in ourselves.
It is not something we see, like a rainbow,
or feel, like the heat of fire.
Happiness is something we are. xo
