"We did not like this, too much cream cheese"

"I have made this many times and it is wonderful. I use half and half instead of milk. I also use the crust but I find Pepperidge Farm White bread works well. I think the reason the other person was saying that it tastes blah is because it did not mention to serve with syrup poured over top like a pancake. Yah, it definitely would be blah if you did not use syrup."

"This recipe looks really good and I made it as written but it turned out very heavy and quite flavorless. It tasted a lot like an unseasoned quiche. We threw most of it out. Sorry :("

"I made this with some leftover pumpkin spice cream cheese and added a sprinkling of cinnamon. I also used some raisin bread instead plain white. It turned out great!"

"This is a fabulous recipe. I have made it exactly as the recipe indicates and I have made it with two tablespoons OJ concentrate. Either way; great."

"This is a great basic recipe. I like it best without the maple syrup and substituing 1 cup orange juice for one of the milk. I get it ready the night before and pop it in the oven in the morning. I also dry up the bread in the oven and leave the crust on. It is best to place it in the center of the oven."
