  • Blend eggs, milk and 1/4 cup syrup in blender until well blended. Add cream cheese product; blend until smooth. Pour into 13x9-inch dish. Dip both sides of each bread slice in egg mixture, then arrange in same dish, stacking slices to fit; cover. Refrigerate overnight.
  • Heat oven to 400°F. Brush 1 tsp. of the butter onto nonstick baking sheet. Transfer bread slices to baking sheet, letting excess egg mixture drip back into dish before placing bread in single layer on baking sheet. Discard leftover egg mixture.
  • Bake 12 to 15 min. or until bread is puffed and golden, turning slices over after 8 min.
  • Meanwhile, melt remaining butter in medium skillet on medium heat. Stir in sugar, then remaining maple syrup; cook and stir 2 min. or until sugar is dissolved. Add bananas; stir to coat. Cook 1 min. or until heated through, stirring frequently.
  • Serve French toast topped with sauce.


To prepare as a casserole, cut each bread slice diagonally in half before soaking in egg mixture. Arrange, in overlapping rows, in baking dish; cover with foil. Refrigerate overnight. When ready to serve, bake, covered, 50 min. or until centre is set and top is lightly browned, uncovering after 30 min. Cut into squares to serve.

    I made this for our family for Christmas morning. It was a real hit! I made the variation noted at the bottom, putting it in a 9x13 pan. The result was so tasty and fed 6 of us well!
