Such an indulgent Christmas morning breakfast

"My family loved this wonderful surprise on Christmas morning. We have passed this on to other family members because it is so delicious. I added some 10x to the cream cheese and covered the top with cinnamon & sugar. Leftovers kept in foil lasted 3 days and each day it was like the first. Excellent!!"

My family LOVED it!!! I loved the custardy texture of the bottom! I also left out the mulled spices and just used cinnamon, also I used challah bread instead.

Easy to prepare (make ahead) and crowd pleasing. I have made this a couple of times, not Christmas though. Instead of mulled syrup I just used 100% maple syrup and I added cinnamon sugar to both layers. Excellent breakfast dish. Will continue to make it.

Sounds divine and I'm going to make it for breakfast this Christmas morning :) but I do plan to add cinnamon sugar all over the top and I'll probably add some nutmeg to the egg mixture :) can't wait for Christmas!!!!!!!

Eh, it was ok. I wasn't sure if I should cover it or not in the fridge. So bc it's similar to bread pudding I covered it. It just tasted like a ginormous French toast. I'll try it again and cook it uncovered. Maybe that'll make some crunchiness on top
