Whisk together 5 eggs, 2 cups whipping cream, and next 4 ingredients; pour evenly over cheeses. Cover and chill mixture for 8 hours.

Whisk together remaining 2 eggs and remaining 1 cup whipping cream; pour evenly over chilled mixture.
Bake at 350 for 1 hour or until casserole is set. Garnish, if desired.

Yield: 8 to 10 servings.
