For Father’s Day, I am making this delicious and very easy dish. Okay, my daughter is baking it, but I am putting it together the night before.
Start with a loaf of French Bread and cut into cubes, approximately 1 ½ inches. Place in a greased 13 by 9 inch pan.
Take a package of cream cheese, 8 oz, and cut into 1 inch cubes.
Heat a jar or approximately one cup of Blackberry Jam, you could use either blueberry or strawberry jam either. And drizzle over the top of the bread cubes and cream cheese.
In a bowl, mix 4 eggs, 2 cups of half and half, a teaspoon of cinnamon, vanilla extract and ½ cup of brown sugar. Pour over the bread mixture. Wrap tightly with foil. Refrigerate overnight.
Bake at 325 degrees covered for 20 minutes. Take the foil off and bake another 15 minutes.
The brown sugar will add so much flavor to this dish, you will love it. Simple, elegant and very easy. Dad will think you spent all morning in the kitchen.
