I served it for breakfast on Christmas Day and its great because you can prepare it the night before, and just pop it in the oven in the morning when you get up. Here is the recipe for Baked Apple French Toast.
2 cups milk
2 tblsps. vanilla
1/2 cup butter melted
3-4 medium green apples
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 tblsp. water
6-10 slices of white, whole wheat, or french bread
cinnamon and sugar
Preheat oven to 350o and grease a 9 x 13 pan
Melt butter and mix in brown sugar and water. Set aside.
Thinly slice apples and evenly place in bottom of pan. Pour the butter and sugar mixture evenly over apples.
Cut the bread slices ( I used french bread) in half and place them over the apples, over lapping slightly, covering the entire dish.
In separate bowl, beat the eggs until light and fluffy.
Pour in the milk and vanilla, mixing until no yokes are showing.
Pour the mixture over the bread, making sure that all is saturated.
Refridgerate overnite and just before baking, sprinkle with a few teaspoons sugar, mixed with cinnamon.
Bake at 350 for 50-60 minutes, or until golden.
Serve dusted with icing sugar and warm maple syrop.
