“Very easy! It just takes minutes to make the night before and then just bake it in the morning. I usually make a small 8" x 8" casserole, using half the ingredients, except a little more bread (5 slices) and a little less cream cheese (6-7 oz.). NOTE: optional nuts have been added.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Layer half of the bread cubes in a greased 9 X 13 casserole dish.
  2. Scatter the cream cheese cubes over the bread, then add the other half of the bread cubes on top.
  3. Combine egges, milk, and syrup. Pour over the casserole.
  4. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  5. In the morning, bring to room temperature, and sprinkle the nuts over the top of the casserole, lightly pressing them in with a spatula.
  6. Bake 30 to 45 minutes in a 350 oven.
  7. Serve with more maple syrup, if desired.
