Breakfast for Champions

If I recall, as I was sitting in the Taco Bell parking lot listening to the Iowa game with my mom and sister a few weekends ago, aka my own personal hell... Iowa lost the game against North Western. However, I still needed to prepare a breakfast for champions, the Just Dance champions. I made two dishes and luckily they were both really good! The first was Overnight Stuffed French Toast:

1 tub (8 oz.) PHILADELPHIA 1/3 Less Fat than Cream Cheese
3 Tbsp. sugar (I used splenda sugar)
8 slices cinnamon-swirl bread
4 eggs
1/2 cup milk
2 cups sliced fresh strawberries
1 cup blueberries

MIX reduced-fat cream cheese and sugar until well blended; spread onto bread. Place 4bread slices, cream cheese-sides up, in 8-inch square baking dish sprayed with cooking spray. Cover with remaining bread slices, cream cheese-sides down.

WHISK eggs and milk until well blended; pour over bread. Cover; refrigerate overnight.

HEAT oven to 350ºF. Bake, uncovered, 30 to 35 min. or until center is set and top is lightly browned. Serve topped with fruit.



The second dish was Do Ahead Egg Bake, I actually made this again the following weekend but halfed the recipe just for me and Mike:

8 eggs
3 cups milk
8 cups French bread cubes (3/4 inch)
1 pkg.(10 oz.) frozen chopped spinach, thawed, squeezed dry
12 slices OSCAR MAYER Bacon, cooked, crumbled (I used turkey bacon)
1 pkg.(8 oz.) KRAFT Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese, divided (I used 2%)

WHISK eggs and milk in large bowl until well blended. Stir in bread. Add spinach, bacon and 1-1/2 cups cheese; mix lightly.

POUR into 13x9-inch baking dish sprayed with cooking spray; top with remaining cheese. Cover; refrigerate overnight.

HEAT oven to 350ºF. Bake, uncovered, 48 to 50 min. or until top is puffed and golden brown.
