Apple Cinnamon French Toast Casserole

Today we're going to make a French toast casserole. If you like French toast, you'll love this dish.

Let's get started.

Listen to Paula Deen. Use real butter.

Melt 1-1/2 stick of butter in a saucepan. Add 1-1/2 cups brown sugar, 1-1/2 tsp. cinnamon and 1 or 2 apples, peeled and chopped. Mix well into a paste.

Pour into a 9 x 12 inch pan.

Spread evenly over the bottom. This doesn't look pretty (like logs in a bog) but it's delicious, I promise.

Remove the crusts from a loaf of white bread. Start layering the bread.

Make two layers, using smaller pieces to fill in spaces.

The bread should fill in to the edges.

Next you're going to need 6 eggs and 2 cups of milk.

I love the way the yolks look against the cobalt blue bowl.

Beat the eggs and milk together until well blended.

Pour over the layered bread.

The bread will eventually soak up all the egg mixture. Cover and refrigerate for at least two hours or overnight. Bake at 350 degrees F for 25-30 minutes or until a knife inserted comes out clean. Dot iwth additional butter and sprinkle with a cinnamon sugar mixture and put under the broiler until melted and bubbly.

This looks delicious, and a whole lot simpler than making enough French toast for the six of us. This does sound like a good one to try Christmas morning.

Looks delicious! I am overrun with eggs and I am always looking for another way to serve them. We are getting 50-60 eggs a day and my people are getting tired of eating them! Can't wait to try this sometime this week. Thanks for sharing. :)

I've made a french toast casserole in the past, but it didn't have the apples. This is an absolute must-try for us! I'm seeing a Christmas breakfast taking shape.

Thanks for sharing! Chris

French toast is one of my very favorite breakfasts so this recipe will go in my "to try" folder! blessings, marlene

JoyceG said...

I make a very similar recipe, except I use cinnamon or cinnamon-raisin bread cut into about 1-inch squares. You can also add some golden raisins to the apple mix on the bottom. Yum!

Silvia said...

My mouth is watering, but I wonder if the custard tastes a little bla since there is no flavouring, only the cinnamon sugar on top???

jirvine603 said...

I was wondering if you could soak for 2 hours then freeze until ready to bake?
