I made this today w/ the help of my grandchildren, for mothers day for my daughter, so she wouldn't have to cook breakfast! It was very delicious and in my granddaughters words, " like a dessert!" You can use a different fruit, like blueberries or blackberries.
Cut bread into 1/2" thick slices. Coat a 9" x13" baking pan w/ cooking spray. In lg bowl, beat eggs, milk, cream, 6 tbsp sugar, vanilla and cinnamon until mixed well.
Dip about 7 pieces of bread into egg mix until they're thoroughly coated. Arrange braed in pan. Pour 1/2 cup of egg mix over bread. In medium bowl, combine 1 tsp vanilla, pie filling, orange zest and cream cheese. Beat until mixed. It will be a little lumpy. Spread filling over bread in pan.
Dip remaining bread into egg mix, place on top of filling in pan. Pour remaining egg mix over all. Cover and refrigerate 2 hrs. Heat oven to 350. Cover lightly with foil. Bake 30 mins. Take foil off and continue baking another 15-20 mins or until set in center. Spoon a little whipped cream on each service and top w/ slices of strawberries.
