Continuing on with our week of make ahead breakfast casseroles…

Today I’m sharing with you another French Toast Casserole. My children would surely find this casserole divine. It includes apples. What’s not to love about apples?!? Everything apple spells yummy to me. Pies, strudels, cider, sauce, butter… I could go on forever!

Apple French Toast Casserole
4 tablespoons butter
3 large apples , peeled and sliced thinly (I use Cortland or Empire)
3/4 cup brown sugar , packed
2 tablespoons water
1 teaspoon cinnamon
8 slices Italian bread , 1 inch thick
4 large eggs
1 1/4 cups milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract


  1. Melt the butter in a large skillet and add apples.
  2. Cook and stir for 5 minutes.
  3. Add brown sugar, water, and cinnamon and continue to cook and stir for 10 minutes until apples are tender.
  4. Spoon mixture into 13×9 baking dish.
  5. Cover apples with bread slices, making sure to cover the entire surface.
  6. Trim the bread to fit if you must.
  7. Beat eggs until foamy, then beat in milk and vanilla.
  8. Pour egg mixture over the bread slices.
  9. Cover the dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
  10. In the morning, remove the dish from the refrigerator and let it stand while oven is preheated to 375 F.
  11. Bake uncovered for 35 minutes, or until bread is golden and firm.
  12. Let sit 10 minutes before serving.
  13. To serve on a platter, run a knife around the edges of the casserole, place platter on top of casserole, and carefully flip.
  14. To serve individually, use a spatula to remove serving, place serving plate on top of serving and carefully flip so apple side is up.
