Stuffed Cranberry French Toast

I got this recipe from my mom. It's probably the most amazing breakfast I have ever had. I wish I had a regular brunch date thing with friends so I could make this and impress them. but I don't. oh well more for me.

Cranberry sauce:
12 oz bag of cranberries
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup orange juice
1/2 cup orange marmalade
1 tablespoon cinnamon

Place all ingredients except marmalade in saucepan and bring to a boil. reduce heat and simmer until cranberries pop. remove from heat add marmalade, mix, set aside.

French toast:
1 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
8 tablespoons butter
4 tablespoons light corn syrup
1 lb loaf italian or french bread
8 oz cream cheese
1 teaspoon vanilla
8 eggs
1 1/2 cup half & half
2 tablespoons orange juice

In saucepan melt together butter, brown sugar, and corn syrup over low heat. add 1 1/2 cups of the cranberry sauce, mix, and set aside.
slice bread thickly spread cream cheese on one piece of bread and make a sandwich. continue with the rest of the bread.
beat eggs and add half & half, orange juice, and vanilla. stir together
spread the cranberry/brown sugar mixture in a greased 9x13 baking dish. layer the cream cheese sandwiches on top. and pour the egg mixture over the bread. refrigerate overnight or cook immediately for 50-60 minutes in a 350 degree oven. cover with tinfoil for the first 30 minutes then remove. serve with the remaining cranberry sauce.

trust me, you will not regret making this.
