Sherry's Overnight Strawberry Cheesecake French Toast Bake Recipe

2 cups freshly sliced strawberries, the sweeter the better
1˝ loaves (about 22 oz) French bread, sliced into 1-inch thick slices (20 slices total)
2 packages (16 oz total) regular cream cheese, softened to room temp
1 cup sugar
11 large eggs
2 tsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 cup whole milk
˝ cup half-and-half OR heavy cream
? cup maple syrup
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 tsp ground cinnamon
˝ tsp ground nutmeg

Grease a 9 x 13 baking dish and set aside. Using a stand mixer or electric mixer, beat cream cheese on medium high until light and fluffy. Whisk in sugar to fully incorporate. Mix in 1 of the eggs and the lemon juice; set aside.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the remaining ingredients until well combined and set aside.

Layer 10 slices of the French bread on bottom of baking dish. Spread two-thirds of the cream cheese mixture evenly over the bread. Place half of the sliced strawberries on top evenly. Repeat layering with remaining slices of bread, cream cheese mixture, and strawberries.

Slowly and evenly pour the egg mixture over the top of all the layers, pressing down a bit so that all the bread gets coated with some of the egg mixture. Cover tightly with foil and chill overnight.

Remove from fridge and let sit at room temperature while you preheat oven to 350F. Bake 30 minutes, covered. Bake for another 30 minute uncovered, until top is nicely golden brown and puffy throughout (center should be puffy and feel set, rather than jiggly.) Note that actual bake time varies depending on individual ovens.

Let rest at room temp 15 minutes before serving. Serve with maple syrup or as-is.

I cleaned out and filled the water dishes for the visiting kitties this morning. When I left no kitties had come into my backyard. I went to work a bit disappointed. Seeing the baby kittens play in the water has been so much fun. When I got home from work, I went out and checked my mailbox. I looked up and there running down the street were the two mama cats and all the baby kitties. They ran up to me so I could pet them. They all were happy to see me. The kitties spent all afternoon playing in the backyard.

Ditto and Little One spent the afternoon sitting on the window sill watching the kittens play. I am not sure why Ditto and Little One can not share one window sill. They fuss with each other over who is going to sit in the window sill in whatever room I am in. If I am in the living room they fight over the window sill in the living room. I guess it is a cat thing that one window sill only holds one cat.

Yesterday, Dr. oz had a guest that used foil packs. Perhaps that will help!

Nancy I love your devotions to all Cats & Kittens. My elusive Missy does funny things. After going back to the shelter asking for suggestions I am trying to wean her from eating at night and switching to days. Have put food near where I think she spends her days but nothing. Yesterday when I came home from buying her food I just dropped it in a chair in the hall. Well she ignore the remains of old food during the day and proceeded to feed her self from new bag which she tore open last night. Had to laugh.
