From Denny: Whether it's the holidays, a busy summer when the kids are out of school or company came to visit, we all need something fast and simple to put together that's a crowd pleaser. This simple easy to assemble breakfast casserole fits that bill!
All the ingredients required are a loaf of good French bread, a full 8 ounces of your favorite brand of cream cheese, milk, maple syrup, butter, sugar and eggs. Add fresh fruit to serve and it's that easy!
Usually when a recipe calls for sugar I often substitute agave syrup or brown rice syrup or even molasses. If you don't like or can enjoy cow's milk why not substitute almond milk? When butter is in a recipe I choose to clarify it just because we love the extra boost of flavor at our house from browning and filtering out the milk solids - as well as the added health benefits. You could use margarine in this recipe as a substitute too. And, to gild the lily, why not add a few shakes of nutmeg and/or cinnamon, some chopped pecans or walnuts before baking? Yeah, Flavor Town is the name at our house...
