french toast souffle

A firm white bread produces the best texture in this make-ahead breakfast casserole.


10 cups (1-inch) cubes sturdy white bread   1 ½ cups 2% reduced-fat milk 
1 (8-ounce) block 1/3 less-fat cream cheese,        
 ½ cup maple syrup
8 large eggs 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
 ½ teaspoon vanilla extract ¾ cup maple syrup
Cooking spray

Place bread cubes in a 13 x 9 inch baking dish coated with cooking spray.  Beat cream cheese at medium speed of mixer until smooth.  Add eggs, 1 at a time, mixing well after each addition.  Add milk, half-and half, ½ cup maple syrup, and vanilla, and mix until smooth.  Pour cream cheese mixture over top of bread, cover and refrigerate overnight.

Preheat oven to 375°.

Remove bread mixture from refrigerator, let stand on counter for 30 minutes.  Bake at 375° for 50 minutes or until set.  Sprinkle the soufflé with powdered sugar, and serve with maple syrup.
