Foodie Goodie | French Toast with a Twist.

Nothing says weekend like a big hearty brunch of French toast, fried eggs, and a tall glass of orange juice (or a cup of coffee for coffeeholics like me). Now if you're planning on making French toast for tomorrow's breakfast (or brunch), here's a different take to the usual pan-toasted soggy bread.

French Toast with a Twist

Ingredients:
1 loaf of bread (if you can find cinnamon-swirled ones, that would be great)
1 stick butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon corn syrup
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
4 ounces of cream cheese, cubed
1 1/2 cup whole milk
5 eggs
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
pinch of nutmeg

Procedure:
1. In a medium saucepan, melt together butter, brown sugar, corn syrup and cinnamon.
2. Cook until sugar is dissolved.
3.Pour in a 9 x 13 inch baking pan.
4. Remove bread crusts and cut into large cubes. Place bread on top of brown sugar mixture in the pan. Top with cubes of cream cheese.
5. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, vanilla and nutmeg.
6. Pour the mixture over bread. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
7. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. Serve with maple syrup, fresh fruits or bacon and eggs.

Happy weekend cooking, everyone!

Mmm this sounds good! French toast is one of my staples but it does feel repetitive after a while. I'll have to try your spin on it sometime.

I have a similar recipe that uses cream cheese for an overnight french toast casserole. Yours sounds simply divine!

With a fresh fruit salad, this makes a great breakfast for supper dinner too!
