A simple make ahead overnight French toast casserole loaded with apples and cinnamon. Enjoy hot out of the oven for brunch with all the work done the night before. In the morning just pop the casserole in the oven and enjoy with maple syrup.
Make sure to use stale or crusty bread. If you use bread that’s too soft you’ll end up with a soggy casserole. If your bread is too soft, leave bread unwrapped on the counter for a day or overnight.
You can cut back on the sugar if you’d like to make the casserole less sweet.
I like to leave my apple skins on, you can peel your apples if you’d like.
Toasted walnuts would be a great addition, make sure to add nuts the morning of. If you leave them in the mixture overnight they will get soft and soggy.
If not using a nonstick 9×12 baking dish, you can butter the dish to prevent sticking. I have not had any problems with my dishes in the past, but it doesn’t hurt, plus more butter!!!
