Recipe Thursday-Overnight Apple French Toast

Posted on November 22nd, 2012 | Posted in Breakfast and Brunch, Recipes

A decadent Overnight Apple French Toast makes for an easy breakfast with girlfriends. My friend made this comfort dish and it was amazing! The fresh apples brought the taste of Fall into this casserole bake. I would describe it as a thick French toast with a bit of apple pie in it. It is not overly sweet, which I am very picky about, and is a self standing dish that does not need any butter or syrup added. The one thing that I did top this dish with was homemade granola. I love putting it on sweet breakfast dishes it adds a contrasting texture that is not as sweet.
