Pepperidge Farm® Cinnamon Swirl Bread, cut into cubes
I really enjoyed this. It reminded me of bread pudding. UPDATE: I just made this recipe again, but used a different casserole dish. You should really bake this in a shallow dish. It doesn't bake through well at all in a deep casserole dish.
This was horribly bland. I was expecting more of a cinnamon taste based on the bread, but it didn't have it. If you want cinnamon flavor, add your own. It also was hard on the outside and undercooked inside (we got around this by serving the outside pieces then sticking the rest back in the oven to finish cooking). I've made other breakfast casseroles like this without the same problem, so it's not as if I was expecting more than the recipe should have delivered.
After reading every review I decided to take everyone's advice, so I tweaked this recipe ALOT...and even added my own twist! I cut the eggs down to 4 and the milk down to 2 cups. I added 1 tsp. cinnamon powder and 1/4 tsp. nutmeg. I also cut the vanilla extract down to 1 tsp. but added in 1/2 tsp. almond extract. I also added 1/4 cup of brown sugar. I let the casserole sit overnight in the fridge before baking it for 50 minutes. I also topped it with sauteed apples, with cinnamon and chopped walnuts, after it was baked! With all these changes, it was VERY good! I would definitely make this again!
I have made this a couple times for different clients who have come to stay. By the time I get to dish up for myself, it is gone (I am talking scraped the bottom of my pans out). They all LOVE it. Added a little extra cin. and baked it about 10 to 15 min. longer.
Its a great dish...i add a small pack of cook and serve vanilla pudding in the mixture with only 2 cups of milk...your casserole will be cooked thoroughly ...;-)
i cut the milk down 2 cups and baked it 15 mins. longer. a nice change to traditional french toast. leftovers can be reheated on any morning and it still tasted great.
I've made this dish twice for office brunches, and everyone loves it. I use white bread instead of cinnamon bread and just add cinnamon to the egg mixture.
Made this for dinner last night & the house smelled so wonderful and my kids loved it.
