Baked Apple French Toast Casserole


Makes 8 servings.
3 large green apples
1 stick (1/2 cup) butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
12 ounces cream cheese
12 slices firm bread, any flavor
8 eggs
1 quart milk
2 tablespoons vanilla extract
Cinnamon to taste


Set rack in lower third of oven and heat to 350 degrees F. Butter
a 13 x 9-inch baking pan.
Core and cut the apples into thin wedges, leaving the skin on.
In a skillet, melt the butter with brown sugar and 1 tablespoon
water. Add the apples and cook stirring for two to three minutes.
Transfer to the baking dish and let cool.
Cut the cream cheese into cubes and arrange evenly over the
apples. Cut the slices of bread in half diagonally and layer
over the apples to cover the whole dish.
In a large mixing bowl, beat together eggs, milk and vanilla
extract. Pour the egg mixture over the bread, taking care to
dampen all of the bread. Sprinkle with cinnamon.
Bake for 40 to 50 minutes, until golden and puffed. Let cool
10 minutes before serving.
