This is a very rich breakfast and very, very delish. You really won't need syrup to enjoy. :) It's so easy to make the night before and pop it into the oven the next morning. This is also a wonderful brunch dish or dessert for something different.

Colleen is right.... no syrup is needed for this delicious French toast casserole. The brown sugar mixture melts and makes its own syrup. There's a bit of tang from the cream cheese. We tried it with French vanilla creamer and hazelnut - both taste fantastic. So good and sweet, you could probably pass this off as a dessert. Serve with a little whipped cream and a cup of coffee for a special breakfast treat.
We could not find thick bread. Regular worked fine. If you can't find the honey nut spread, use a regular cream cheese spread. Mix in 1 1/2 Tbsp of honey and 1/2 Tbsp chopped pecans.
Spray a 13 x 9-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
Spread each slice of bread with a light layer of cream cheese and place in the dish.
In a separate bowl, melt butter and brown sugar. Set aside.
In another bowl, mix cinnamon, nutmeg, eggs, salt, and creamer. Pour over bread. Top with brown sugar mixture made in step above.
Sprinkle pecans over entire dish. Cover with foil and refrigerate overnight.
Next morning, leave covered and bake at 350 degrees F for about 45 minutes.
Cut into squares and dust with powdered sugar.
