Overall we liked this. Here's how we made it: I didn't use the whole loaf (used a little more than 3/4 of it), dicing cream cheese is impossible so I sliced it off & used my fingers to squeeze little pieces off (about 1/2 teaspoon size), I used 2 cups of blueberries (frozen & rinsed to thaw), I sprinkled cinnamon over the top layer of bread, added vanilla to the egg mix, and squished the bread down into it after it was poured over the top. This is not like the kind of french toast you make on a skillet, it is more of an egg breakfast casserole. Next time I would decrease the amount of eggs (9?) and increase the maple syrup. I would sprinkle cinnamon over the cream cheese layer (the cream cheese is rather flavor-less), or even better would be cinnamon/sugar. We did not make the blueberry syrup (too much sugar for us). I actually think this is better when reheated the next day (flavors have a chance to blend more), and with a small amount of maple syrup on top. It made about 8 servings for our family.
