    Directions

    1.
    Heat oven to 200 degrees F. Stir together cream cheese, sugar and cinnamon in small bowl. Slice ends off loaf of bread. Cut loaf into six 1-1/2- to 2-inch thick slices.

    1.
    Whisk together the eggs, milk, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice in a large bowl. Dip stuffed slices into egg mixture, until both sides are moistened; do not let the bread slices soak.
    2.
    Melt butter in large skillet or on griddle. Add bread slices; cook over medium to medium-high heat for 3 to 5 minutes per side or until browned. Keep slices warm on sheet pan in 200 degree F oven, until all slices are done. Serve with confectioners sugar and maple syrup, if desired. Makes 6 servings.
