  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Assorted fresh fruit, optional

  • 1. Spread cream cheese over 10 bread slices; top with remaining bread. Arrange sandwiches overlapping in a greased 13x9-in. baking dish.
  • 2. In a large bowl, whisk condensed milk and orange juice until blended. Whisk in eggs, milk, orange zest, vanilla and cinnamon. Pour over top; press bread down to submerge. Refrigerate, covered, several hours or overnight.
