Not my favorite, Member NACreek

I made this along with the Baked French Toast with Brown Sugar Streusel Topping recipe for Christmas brunch. This one was okay, but was not the favorite of the two. I did not care for the cream cheese in this one...it wasn't very creamy. This recipe seemed like it needed a bit more sweetness also. The other recipe was outstanding. I think the Baked French Toast with Brown Sugar Streusel Topping recipe might be good also with a layer of blueberries in between the bread slices in lieu of the struesel topping.
