  • 16 oz. loaf French bread, cut into 1/2″ cubes
  • 6 oz. cream cheese (3/4 of 8 oz. pkg.), cut into 1/2″ cubes
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 qt. half and half
  • 1/2 C. butter, melted
  • 1/4 C. maple syrup
  • Topping:
  • 16 oz. fresh sliced strawberries (frozen sliced strawberries may be substituted)
  • 10 oz. strawberry jam


  • Night Before: Arrange half of the cubed bread in a lightly greased, deep 9×13″ pan. Sprinkle with cubed cream cheese and cover with remaining bread cubes. Whisk together eggs, half and half, butter and
  • maple syrup. Pour evenly over the bread cubes, making sure they all absorb the egg mixture. Cover with foil and refrigerate for 8 hours (overnight).
  • In The Morning: Bake, foil covered, for 30 minutes at 350°F. Remove foil and bake another 30 minutes, until the top is golden brown. While French toast is baking, combine and heat topping ingredients in a saucepan. Cut French toast into 8 to 10 servings. Plate each serving,
  • then ladle heated topping generously over each serving.
