My friend makes this French toast bake with blueberries, but I make mine with cranberry sauce. Either way, it’s divine. It makes a great brunch dish for Christmas morning. —Sandie Heindel, Liberty, Missouri

"This recipe was delicious but I had to extend my baking time. The time it said to bake it was not long enough the eggs were still not set. Another 20 minutes did the trick."

"Simple, tasty brunch dish. My husband isn't a huge fan of cream cheese so this was too much cream cheese for him."
