I needed to make breakfast for a large crowd and decided to try something different. This is basically three layers. The first layer is bread pudding, the second layer is cheese cake, and the third layer is the french toast. I was going to add fruit on top of the cheese cake filling but everyone couldn't decide on any one fruit , so I did not add any, next time I'm adding cherry pie filling. 8] forgot to mention, this was good both hot and cold 8]
