I got this recipe from a good friend and have fixed it several times, it is always a big hit. Notes: Prep time is actual hands on time, it needs to sit overnight and take out of refrigerator 30 min. before baking. I have fixed this without cubing bread and it works fine. Also, you may wish to decrease cream cheese to 1 package instead of two. I have fixed it both ways. I think 1 package is plenty.

My family loves this! Because it is so decadent, we only make it for special occasions. I use french bread instead of white sandwich bread for a thicker texture. And of course, I always make extra sauce! (The sauce is great on ice cream too!)

Good! My oldest son especially enjoyed this, and it was easy to heat up leftovers (I froze some, too) for easy breakfasts. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

This was not as good as I'd hoped it would be. I took it to church for a special breakfast and while most people seemed to like it, no one reallly loved it. The blueberry syrup got most of the compliments. The only thing I did differently was to add a small amount of cinnamon and ginger to the egg mixture before pouring it over the bread, and I doubled the syrup. I felt the casserole was very bland and needed the entire (doubled) syrup mixture poured over it to make it sweet enough. If I make this again, I will definitely sweeten the cream cheese.
