Recipe from MyRecipes:

This breakfast casserole is a great make ahead dish and perfect for family get together or pot luck brunches. Serve with warm maple syrup on the side.

"This was a huge hit on Christmas morning. My 5 year old is a super picky eater. He loved this so much he wanted it for dinner as well.

The dish is sweet in a decadent kind of way. Crunchy and soft all at the same time. I added some fresh grated nutmeg. Served with bacon. Loved it!!"

8 ounce Cream cheese; softened
8 Eggs
1 1/2 cups milk
2/3 cup Half and half
1/2 cup Maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon Vanilla extract

Great recipe! Very nice for brunch or family mornings. I actually increase the bread by a half to one whole more loaf (so its not soggy on the bottom) and mix it up by using challah bread (I like the crust but want more meat part ofthe bread.

@Jeanwgriffin, It looks correct and showing as fractions on my end. Thanks for letting me know, not sure when this got changed on line to decimals. I never enter recipes in decimals, so that was odd.
