16 slices day old sourdough bread, cubed
(I usually throw the end of a few loaves in the freezer and then when I
have a good portion I make this recipe)
1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese, cubed (Of course raw cream cheese is best
for this recipe)
1 1/2 doz. pastured eggs
1/2 c. maple syrup
2 c. raw milk
Put 1/2 of bread cubes in casserole. Put cubed cream cheese on top of bread. Put on rest of bread cubes. Whip eggs. Add maple syrup and milk. Mix well. Pour over bread and cheese. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
Next morning, bake at 375 degrees for 45 minutes. Serve with syrup or fruit.
NOTE: Soaking is very important in this recipe. You can get away with just 3-4 hours of soaking but overnight is FAR better.
I usually freeze it uncooked. Then pop it into the oven usually in a
semi-frozen state because I forgot to take it out in time
bake it on the highest rack in oven at 350 degrees F until the top is
browned and a bit crunchy.
We serve it will more maple syrup or whole berries and fresh whipped
