Stuffed French Toast Casserole

My mom has made this for years. It was in a our church recipe book back when I was just starting high school. She has tested a million different variations and I attempted mine this morning.  The original recipe is at the bottom.

What You Need:

  • 12oz French Bread (loaf was $1 at Wal-Mart this morning)
  • 6 Eggs
  • 6 oz cream cheese
  • 1/4 Cup Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 3/4 Cup regular milk
  • 1 tbsp Vanilla
  • Cinnamon to taste
  • 8×8 pan
  • 4 tbsp Butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup

What to Do:

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Cut french bread in half then cube halves.
  3. Place half the cubes in pan greased pan.
  4. Top with cream cheese. (I just pulled chunks of it off with my hands)
  5. Sprinkle with cinnamon.
  6. Place remaining french bread on top.
  7. Mix together eggs, milks, vanilla, butter, & syrup.
  8. Pour evenly over bread and cream cheese.
  9. Bake for 45-50 minutes.

Don’t turn up the heat last minute to try to crisp the top and forget to set a timer.  Hence why mine is a little extra toasty on top.

My husband was a big fan. The sweetened condensed milk makes it a little sweeter than the original recipe. You can always add some sugar instead.
