Mix 6 oz. cream cheese and brown sugar in large bowl until blended. Stir in cinnamon and vanilla. Add eggs, 1 at a time, mixing well after each addition. Reserve 1 Tbsp. milk. Gradually whisk remaining milk into cream cheese mixture; pour over bread. Refrigerate 8 hours.
Heat oven to 350ºF. Bake casserole, uncovered, 40 to 50 min. or until knife inserted in center comes out clean and top is golden brown.
Mix remaining cream cheese, powdered sugar and reserved milk until blended. Drizzle over casserole; sprinkle with nuts.
