Highly recommend making a berry compote to put on top of it. This casserole is very sweet and creamy, a nice berry sauce with low sugar is the perfect pair. On the side, we like to have sausages, maple sausages are the Allergy Girls favorite, but regular are the Chef's favorite so you choose. Want to make it ahead? Go for it! It's even better cold too! Good morning and happy baking!


Story behind the recipe:

Allergy girl discovered a recipe a lot time ago that she really wanted to make and as she was making it she realized little by little that she didn't have the ingredients and needed to improvise. She didn't have milk of any kind, all she had was creamer so she used that. She didn't have regular bread so she used Hawaiian. She didn't have enough cinnamon so she used gram cracker. She had a real craving for cream cheese, so she put that in there too. She never wrote down the recipe, and later when she wanted it, had to mess around with it to figure it out. Low and behold, here it is.

If you like a lot of cream cheese, Allergy Girl recommends premixing the cream cheese with some sugar to balance out the saltiness. The casserole by it self can be a bit sweet for some people so it's super important for those less sweet loving people that you give them the option to balance it out with some berry compote. Allergy girl likes a berry mix, blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, and strawberries, but tart berry will do. It's always a good idea to strain your compote afterwards to get rid of seeds if you don't like seeds. We hope you enjoy it and have a lovely morning!
