Specialty Recipe

French Toast Souffle

Ingredients:
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter (or margarine)
8 ounces cream cheese
1/2 cup maple syrup
Bread cubes (1/2- to 3/4-inch square)*
12 large eggs
3 cups half & half
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla
Cinnamon

Butter ramekins or two 7 x 11-inch baking dishes well. Fill dishes 1/2 full with bread cubes. In small bowl, mix butter, cream cheese, and syrup together after softening in microwave -- OK to leave a little lumpy. Spoon this mixture over bread cubes and distribute evenly clear to edges.

In large bowl, beat eggs, half & half, and vanilla. Pour over bread. Your bread cubes will be "floating" at this point -- make sure all cubes are moistened. Dust with cinnamon, cover, and store overnight in refrigerator.

Bake in a 350-degree oven for 55 to 60 minutes. It is done when center is raised and firm and whole top is lightly browned. To serve, cut in serving pieces (we cut 6 per casserole dish). Top with diced strawberries and/or sliced bananas and chopped walnuts, then pour small amount of maple syrup and dust with powdered sugar. Serve immediately -- this crashes quickly. Enjoy!

Note: *We use the sliced sourdough French bread and then just cut the slices into squares.

Serves: 12. To serve 18, multiply amounts by 1.5 (except vanilla, use 2 teaspoons ) and use three 7 x 11-inch baking dishes.
