French Toast Souffle
Every Friday here in the Test Kitchen, we could always count on Mr. Food bringing us some bakery-fresh bread. This French Toast Souffle was one of many of his favorite ways to enjoy it.
What You'll Need
- 14 slice to 16 slices hearty white bread, cut into 1-inch cubes (about 10 cups)
- 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
- 8 large eggs
- 1 1/2 cup reduced-fat milk
- 2/3 cup half-and-half
- 1/2 cup maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 tablespoon confectioners' sugar
What to Do
Coat a 9- x 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray. Place bread cubes in baking dish.
In a large bowl, beat cream cheese with an electric mixer until smooth. Add eggs, beating well after each addition. Add milk, half-and-half, maple syrup, and vanilla; mix until smooth.
Pour cream cheese mixture over top of bread cubes, cover, and chill for at least 2 hours, or as long as overnight.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Remove dish from refrigerator and let stand for 20 minutes. Bake 45 to 50 minutes, or until set. Sprinkle souffle with confectioners' sugar just before serving.
Please feel free to share your memories of Mr. Food and any recipes of his that you love to make on our Memorial Page.
Serve with additional warmed maple syrup, if desired.
