Again, this is from our days as Bed and Breakfast Hosts. It is tasty and a little different.. Give it a try and you will see.
- 6 cups white bread, remove crust
- 6 ounces Philadelphia cream cheese.( If you live in Maui, I suggest using the maple and pecan cream cheese. Can’t find it anywhere else.)
- 6 eggs, well beaten
- 1 cup cream
- 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
- 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
Cut the bread into 1 ” cubes and place in a 8 x 8′ buttered pan. Cut the cream cheese into squares as well and dot over the bread crumbs. Now beat together the eggs, cream and maple syrup and pour over the bread. Cover with plastic wrap and put in the fridge overnight.
In the morning, remove from the fridge and let stand while the oven heats up. . Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Bake 45 minutes until puffy and golden. Serve immediately with bacon and a slice or two of fresh fruit.
Voila! What a great dish to enjoy. Serve with lots of warm maple syrup too.
