The Perfect Christmas Breakfast!

What do you cook Christmas morning? Normally we have no time to cook breakfast and last minute I'm throwing together some pancakes, eggs, and bacon. What I hate about doing that is during that time I could be helping the kids open their boxes the toys are in. Putting up their clothes. Or getting prepared for Christmas lunch. So this year I stumbled upon a breakfast recipe and at first I never made it because I kept forgetting to buy the ingredients. Well I found it again when I was skimming through all my awesome pinterest pins and finally decided I HAD to make it! I am SO thankful I did. It is AMAZING!

I found this recipe at Tomatoes on the Vines. I did change up the ingredients a tiny bit but it is good either way.

First Ingredients:
- 2 Kings Hawaiian Sweet Round Bread.
- 8oz cream cheese softened
- 7 large eggs
- 1 1/4 cups mik
- 2/3 cup half & half cream
- 2/3 cup maple syrup
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 tablespoons powdered sugar(sometimes I forget to add this and its still amazing)

Ingredients for the following morning:
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 cups of milk
- 1/4 cup maple syrup

- Lightly grease your pan(I use a 9x13 but you can use slightly bigger or smaller)
- I just tore apart the round bread and placed it in the pan
- In a large bowl beat the cream cheese(the first time I didn't have a mixer because we had just moved and didn't have our stuff yet so I used a fork, it was painful but it got the job done. The cream cheese was still a little clumpy but the end results turned out great.
- After that start to mix in the eggs, milk, cream, syrup, and vanilla.
- Pour over the bread, cover, and let it sit in the fridge over night.

- The next morning preheat the oven to 350°F and pull the French toast from the fridge
- Mix 2 more eggs, the milk, and maple syrup and pour over the soufflé again. This helps get the top part covered also and make it a little more moist.
- Bake uncovered for about 50 minutes. Depending on your oven it may not take that long or it may take longer. My oven I have to cook this for about an hour.
- Once it is done cooking you can either eat it plain or you can pour the powdered sugar and a little more syrup over it. It's all up to you :)
