Cinnamon Raisin Cream Cheese French Toast Casserole

Cinnamon Raisin Cream Cheese French ToastWhat a very long name for a fairly simple recipe. Ever since my breakfast club at work, I have been a fan of French toast casserole. Specifically, Apple and Cranberry French Toast Casserole. I had another playgroup baby shower to attend and I volunteered French Toast Casserole, thinking I would make my old standby. When I saw this on I Was Born To Cook, I knew I had to try it. I think I would be better off in a deeper dish next time, as it puffed up a little much.
Cinnamon Raisin Cream Cheese French Toast Casserole

1 loaf cinnamon raisin bread
5 eggs
2 cups milk
1/2 cup cream
1 cup sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 dash nutmeg

16 ounces cream cheese
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs
½ cup sugar

Lightly butter a 3-quart baking pan. Cover the bottom of the pan with half of the bread slices. In a medium bowl combine 6 of the eggs with all the milk and cream, 1 cup of sugar and 2 teaspoons of vanilla. Pour half the egg mixture over the bread. In a separate bowl mix the cream cheese, remaining 2 eggs, teaspoon of vanilla, and ½ cups of sugar until smooth and creamy. Spread the cream cheese mixture over the bread layer. Arrange the rest of the bread over the filling and top with the remaining egg mixture. Sprinkle with nutmeg. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 60 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting.

I don't think french toast can get any better than this. It would be like having dessert for breakfast. I have a sweet treat linky party going on at my blog and I'd love it if you'd come by and link your french toast up.

The recipe calls for FIVE eggs in the first part of the ingredients, but the directions call for SIX of the eggs. Not sure now exactly how many eggs are to be used. Please advise, as this recipe sounds amazing!
