Great MAKE AHEAD recipe. I always read reviews before making any AR dish, so I knew to cut the cream cheese amount in half. Added cinnamon and nutmeg to the milk. Although I did chill this overnight, a trick to making a quicker strata of any kind is to make the recipe as directed through the stage where you'd be chilling it overnight. Then, cover your dish with plastic wrap and place some type of evenly-distributed weight on top -- another baking dish, or a cutting board with a cookbook on top, whatever. (No need to chill unless it's 100 degrees in your kitchen.) It only takes about an hour for the bread to soak up the custard perfectly! I added a bit of lemon juice to the syrup to brighten it up, too. Very, very good.
