Breakfast for Dinner

  This is a favorite recipe of my kids.  There are many ways to vary this recipe, sugar versus brown sugar, with or without sliced bananas, with or without powdered sugar.  But I have never had any complaints.

- Day old French loaf bread
- 1/2 cup (opt. Brown) Sugar
- 1 tsp. Cinnamon 
- 6 lg eggs
- 1/2 cup Half&Half (opt.)
- Philly Cream Cheese (flavored are best, although I wouldn't suggest the salmon)
- Butter/Oil for pan

Pre-heat oven to 220 degrees, with cookie sheet ready.  Slice the bread on angle about 1/2" thick. Spread liberally with cream cheese. Add a top to complete the 'sandwich'.  Pre-heat skillet or counter grill to medium heat.  Beat eggs, sugar, cinnamon and half&half together until the sugar looks like it goes into the mixture.  Depending on the size of your bowl, put a couple of the sandwiches into the egg bath, and allow to absorb the mixture.

Add a pat of butter to the skillet, and allow it to spread and slightly brown in pan. If using oil, give it a couple of minutes to come up to pan temperature.  Place sandwiches in the pan, and let brown for a couple of minute on each side.  Then place on the cookie sheet, which I have learned through experience that helps the cream cheese soften to a desired texture.  Once all the sandwiches have sat in the oven for a few minute or the bacon is ready ;) then you can serve.  Enjoy
