French Toast Cream Cheese Casserole – Recipe!

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

I made this French Toast Cream Cheese Casserole for Christmas morning from Sally’s Baking Blog and I think it was absolutely delicious.  It’s made with a loaf of challah or egg bread and soaked in a simple custard and placed in the refrigerator overnight.  In the morning, I topped it off with a simple crumble of brown sugar, flour and butter and then baked it to golden brown, and slightly puffed.  It’s flavors are caramel creamy good and a drizzle of maple syrup over top completes this dish.

My family just loved it and I served it two days in a row because there were leftovers the following morning.  It reheats beautifully in an oven within minutes or you can cut it into squares, and freeze it to enjoy later in individual portions.  Enjoy!
