Got this recipe from Shanelle just yesterday, who got it from the Pampered Chef, and I couldn’t wait to try it. We made it this morning, and it was really good, but I was using leftover French bread (this easy recipe makes the best French toast), and didn’t quite have enough to get the slices really thick, so a couple places were a little soggy. Either cut at least 1″ thick slices of bread, or reduce the milk to 3/4 cup (possibly less).
1 pkg (3 oz) cream cheese, softened
enough thick slices of French bread to totally fill a 9X13 pan
1 can (29 oz) peach slices, drained (Shanelle suggested using fresh peaches sweetened w/ sugar)
1/4 cup chopped nuts (I left out)
1 cup milk
1/3 maple-flavored syrup
2 Tbsp butter, melted
1 Tbsp sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
*Preheat oven to 400.
*Spread cream cheese over both sides of bread slices. Place bread in 13×9″ baking pan. Prick bread slices several times. Top with peach slices; sprinkle nuts over peaches.
*In large bowl, whisk eggs, milk, syrup, butter, sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla. Pour mixture over bread.
*Bake 20-25 minutes, or until set in center.
