French Toast Casserole

By Rebecca | September 30, 2008

1 loaf Italian bread
8 ounces cream cheese
1/2 cup sugar (divided)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla (or almond) extract
1/2 cup pecans
4 eggs
2 cup milk
1 teaspoon cinnamon (some like more)
2 tablespoon melted butter

Cut bread into 1 inch cubes. Place half of the bread cubes in a greased
9 x 13 baking pan.

Melt cream cheese in the microwave. Stir several times. (This takes about 2 minutes.)

Stir 1/4 cup sugar and vanilla extract into the cream cheese.
Pour the cream cheese mixture over the bread cubes. It will not completely cover them.

Sprinkle nuts over the cream cheese layer. Top with remaining bread cubes.
Beat together the remaining sugar, eggs, milk, cinnamon, and melted butter. Pour the egg and milk mixture over the bread cubes.

Refrigerate overnight to bake the next morning OR slide the pan into a two-gallon freezer bag and freeze. Thaw completely to cook.

Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes or until browned. Let sit at room temp for 5 minutes before cutting. Top with syrup or fruit toppings.
