20 slices cinnamon swirl bread
4 cups half and half
2 teasp. vanilla
1 cup sugar
16 ounces of cream cheese
1 teasp. vanilla
1/2 cup sugar
Spray a 4 quart baking pan and a single loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray. Arrange half the bread in the bottom of the pans so that the entire bottom is covered(2 pieces in loaf pan, 8 pieces in 4 qt. pan).
In a separate bowl, mix eggs, half & half, vanilla and sugar. Pour half of this mixture over bread. In another bowl combine filling ingredients. Pour over moistened bread. Arrange other half of bread over top of filling and pour remaining egg mixture over top. Sprinkle top with dash of nutmeg. Cover with plastic wrap and let stand in refrigerator overnight.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Uncover and bake for 60 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting apart.
To serve: we cut each sandwich diagonally on a plate and open it up slightly revealing the filling. Then drizzle with some syrup and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
