Trim crusts from bread. Arrange half of the bread in a 13 x 9-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray.
Combine milk, 1 1/2 cups egg substitute, half-and-half, and 1/2 cup sugar in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk. Pour half of milk mixture over bread in dish.
Combine 1/2 cup egg substitute, 1/2 cup sugar, vanilla, nutmeg, and cheeses in a food processor or blender; process until smooth. Pour cream cheese mixture over moist bread in dish. Top with remaining bread; pour remaining milk mixture over bread. Cover and refrigerate 8 hours or overnight.
Preheat oven to 350°.
Uncover and bake at 350° for 55 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before serving. Sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar, if desired.
I made the recipe exactly to specifications, using Sunmaid Raisin Cinnamon Swirl bread, with the exception that I topped it with turbinado sugar. Unfortunately, it was really awful. The texture was terribly mushy, I think, in part, because of the filling. It also had a bad aftertaste, possibly due to the egg substitute?? The outer edges seemed less distasteful because they were somewhat firmer. Might be better using a firmer/older bread, and possibly eliminating the filling. It also definitely needs something sweet as a topper - the turbinado sugar did add much needed sweetness and crunch. I would not make this again.
Definitely used half the liquid like everyone else. But it came out awesome for Easter Brunch. Was a big hit. I also accidentally used neufchatel cheese in place of cream cheese and it was very delicious. Stuffed it with a few banana slices as well - very tasty.
I made this recipe for a large group (16) people for a holiday breakfast. It was amazingly easy, cut way down on my am prep time, and was delicious. Also, I made a half recipe using gluten free bread for one of my guests, but I couldn't find raisin gluten free, so I sprinkled each layer with a generous amt. of cinnamon, and about 1/8 cup raisins. It got raves. I also got brownie points with my daughter's mother in-law to be, because she came to brunch expecting to get to just eat eggs and bacon.
This was very good and a great make ahead dish for brunch on Father's day. After reading other reviews, I omitted 1 cup of milk and cooked it slightly longer (10-15 min). It was wonderful! Still very moist, so much so that I may reduce the milk by another half cup next time. But will definitely make again. Yum!
