Apple Cinnamon French Toast Casserole

Here's another Quaile Family favorite. It's extremely easy to assemble, (even for a culinary novice), and it's one of the sole reasons I look forward to our Easter Brunch as well as our Christmas Eve Midnight Breakfast. It makes the whole house smell SO good while it's baking, your neighbors will want to stop by. Better make extra!

1 loaf Pepperidge Farm Cinnamon Swirl Bread (or your favorite brand)
9 eggs
2 cups milk
1/4 cup sugar
1 tbsp vanilla
1 granny smith apple
3 tbs of cinnamon and sugar mix

First, get everything ready:
Preheat oven to 400F.
Spray a 9x13x2 casserole dish with nonstick cooking spray.
Cut bread slices into quarters.
Peel and thinly slice the apple.
Mix eggs, milk, sugar, and vanilla.

To assemble, make layers:
Half of the bread, then half of the chopped apples, then 1 tbs cinn/sugar mix.
Pour egg mixture on top of whole thing and sprinkle remaining cinn/sugar mix on top.
Bake for 30 min.
Cut into squares and serve with maple syrup.

To save time, make it the night before! Mix everything up and assemble it as directed, then cover it with foil and place it in the fridge until morning. Then all you have to do is take it out of the fridge, pop it in the oven! Perfect!
