Stuffed French Toast

    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!

    Very very good recipe. I had to bake about 8 minutes longer since the casserole jiggled like Santa's belly when I went to take it out of the oven. Don't bake too long, I'd be afraid of drying out the cream cheese in the center. Great recipe for a busy morning (such as Christmas morning with all the excitement). Forgot the cinnamon sugar topping just used syrup instead.

    I really liked this recipe, but I think the cream cheese filling could be omitted. It didn't add anything. I made a half batch in an 8x8 pan and used the crusts on the bread, so 8 slices of bread fit perfectly in the pan. Also, I used eggs instead of egg substitute and used only 2% milk instead of the half and half and milk. I only used fat free cream cheese.

    We loved it! Baked it without the "stuffing" and it turned out great. I made the cream cheese stuffing without the egg and served it on the side with syrup. Hands down we loved the cream cheese on top. This one will be a family favorite forever!

    I love this recipe. It is always a hit - we try to serve as a yummy breakfast around the holidays! I love how you prepare it the night before and just pop in the oven.

    I rated this recipe with only two stars (has potential) because I believe the recipe needs some tweaking to be a true 5-star recipe. The flavor was fantastic, but I, too, had too much liquid left (I used only 1/2), and I followed the recipe verbatim. I also wondered if perhaps the amount of cream cheese was too little, or others were using too much (8 oz is only 1/2 bar), or my bread was too thin... Nonetheless, flavor = 5, texture = needs some work.

    This recipe was not disappointing at all! I didn't even have half and half or egg substitute and used other ingredients, but it still turned out great. I made this for Mother's Day, and my family members all agreed they liked it. Definately making it again.

    My son surprised me with this for Mother's Day. I had forwarded the recipies for Mother's Day from Cooking Light as a joke and the joke was on me. It was not only a great surprise, but perhaps the best breakfast I have ever had. I would compare this to creme brule', cheese cake and bread pudding all rolled into one! It is going straight to my saved recipies!

    I made this for my son's school for teacher appreciation week and everyone asked me for the recipe. This was a great hit! For a smaller gathering you could also cube the bread and place in individual greased ramekin cups too...

    We made this recipe for Christmas brunch. It was a hit. We froze the leftovers and they were just as good reheated in the mircowave!

    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 extremely disappointing. It went in the garbage. It was a soggy mess. Good thing I brought extra eggs to make or we would have been hungry on Mother's day.

    Very easy and delicious recipe. I added blueberries, next I'll try bananas. I used a heavy bread that worked very well. My 11 year old nephew asked if I would share the recipe. Now you know it's good!

    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.

    Huge hit at the office breakfast potluck! Everyone wanted the recipe!

    Hardly any left after Mother's Day brunch at my house!

    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.
