This breakfast casserole could not be easier to make or more tasty! Made up to 24 hours before baking, the casserole is flavored with strawberry preserves, neufchatel (or low fat cream cheese) cheese, eggnog with rustic, crusty French bread. The end result is like a cross between a bread pudding, a danish and French toast; creamy on the bottom and crunchy on the top from the baking and pecans. It's a perfect solution for holiday mornings or a brunch. It's not overly sweet and has a bit of protein from the neufchatel and eggs leaving diner satisfied for a good long while.If making this out of the holiday season, substitute Half and Half for the eggnog. Serves 10-12.
