Try this variation on the classic breakfast. It’s made better with Musselman’s Lemon Pie Filling.

In a large bowl beat cream cheese with an electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Beat in powdered sugar and vanilla. Add pie filling; beat until well combined.
In a large bowl whisk together eggs and milk until combined.
Trim ends off French bread and discard or save for another use. Cut loaf into 16 slices.
Arrange half the slices in the prepared baking dish, overlapping slices if necessary.
Evenly pour on top 1/2 of the egg mixture (about 1 3/4 cups). Then spoon on the lemon filling, spreading evenly. Top with remaining bread slices.
Dish will be very full. Slowly pour remaining egg mixture evenly over the top bread slices in dish.
