French Toast Casserole

Thanksgiving morning after a long walk with the dogs a marathon of  eating and drinking began! Oh there was football too. Well my mom baked up a tasty French Toast Casserole! The photo does not do this dish justice. Unfortunately, I wasn't around before the first person enjoyed their breakfast. :)

It would be perfect for Christmas morning too.

French Toast Casserole Recipe
Serves  8

1 loaf Texas toast or egg bread, cut into cubes
1 (8-oz.) pkg. cream cheese, slightly softened
8 large eggs
1 1/2 cup milk
3/4 cup maplesyrup
6 tbsp butter, melted

Coat a 13 x 9 inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
Layer one half of bread cubes in baking dish.
Cut cream cheese into cubes and scatter over bread.
Sprinkle generously with cinnamon.
Mix remaining ingredients and pour over bread and press bread with spatula to help soak up mixture. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 to 50 minutes.

We had a few glasses of Champagne too. Here's another bottle from Wilson Creek. Check it out, it's Orange Mimosa! Perfect for breakfast if I must say.
