8 cups cubed challah bread (about 8 thick slices)
1/2 cup spreadable cream cheese, room temp.
1 cup milk
1/2 cup grapefruit juice
4 large eggs
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 maple syrup

Citrus Salsa:
2 grapefruit
2 oranges
3 tbsp. packed brown sugar
2 tbsp. granulated sugar
ground cinnamon
maple syrup
powdered sugar


For the Casserole:
Coat an 11x7-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
Place bread cubes in baking dish and set aside.

In a large bowl and using an electric hand-mixer, beat cream cheese until softened.
With mixer running, whisk in milk in a steady stream. Whisk in grapefruit juice in a steady stream.
Add eggs, vanilla, cinnamon and a pinch of salt; whisk until combined.
Pour over bread, pressing down to soak bread evenly. Sprinkle with 1/4 cup brown sugar and drizzle with 1/4 cup maple syrup. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour or overnight.

For the Citrus Salsa:
Grate 1 tbsp. zest from the grapefruit and 1 tbsp. zest from the oranges. Cut away the peel and pith
from the grapefruit and oranges. Cut each section in half crosswise. Place in a serving bowl; sprinkle with grapefruit zest, orange zest, 3 tbsp. brown sugar, granulated sugar and cinnamon.
Refrigerate up to 1 hour (Stir gently just before serving.)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place baking dish on center oven rack. Bake 35 - 45 minutes or until golden brown and completely set. Remove from oven and place on a wire cooling rack; let cool for 5 minutes. Slice and serve warm with Citrus Salsa, maple syrup and a dusting of powdered sugar.
