Being able to prepare this easy breakfast beforehand makes it the perfect dish to serve for a holiday breakfast (think Easter or Christmas) but it’s also fabulous if you have overnight guests (or even a kids slumber party)!

The apples in this recipe are tart and delicious.  I prefer to use granny smith because I find they hold their shape best and don’t get mushy!  You can substitute your favorite type or what you have on hand but keep in mind the sweetness and shape may vary!

Did you make this recipe?

Ingredients:

  • 5 tablespoons butter
  • 5 large granny smith apples (approx. 8 cups peeled and sliced)
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon corn starch
  • 14 slices white bread , crusts removed
  • 6 large eggs
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Directions:

  1. Combine eggs, milk and vanilla. Set aside.
  2. Peel & slice apples approximately 1/4″ thick.
  3. Melt the butter in a frying pan and add apples, brown sugar, cinnamon, and water. Cook on medium heat for about 8 minutes or until apples are slightly softened. In a separate bowl, combine 1 tablespoon corn starch and 1 tablespoon water to create a slurry.
  4. Push the apples over to one side of the pan, turn the heat up to medium high and pour some of the corn starch mixtures into the boiling liquid until it thickens. Depending on how much liquid was in your apples, you may not need all of the slurry.
  5. Spread apple mixture into a 9×13 pan. Top with 1/2 of the bread slices and spoon 1/2 of the egg mixture over the bread. Top with a second layer of bread slices and remaining egg mixture. Cover with foil and refrigerate overnight.

In the morning

  1. Remove the pan from the refrigerator while preheating the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Bake covered for 35 minutes. Remove foil and bake an additional 10-15 minutes or until bread is firm. Remove from the oven and let cool 10 minutes. Invert into a pan.

  1. Should step 1 under the “In the morning” say Remove the pan from the refrigerator (instead of oven) while preheating the oven?

  2. Oh wow! This looks so decadent and delightful! It would make the perfect breakfast treat or even a great dessert. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Man do I need THIS for my weekend breakfast! Wonder if I can talk anyone into making it for me….

  4. Oh wow. I agree…breakfast or dessert…or both! This is a great idea.

  5. This is brilliant! Can’t wait to make it this weekend for our lazy Sunday breakfast.

  9. What a yummy treat for breakfast! Thanks for linking up with me for Friday Favorites. I’m featuring you this week!

  10. It’s getting to be fall and I’m excited to try this recipe this weekend. Have you ever used any other kind of bread for it? My picky family doesn’t seem to like white bread, although for this they might decide it’s alright!

    • I haven’t used other bread in this particular recipe but I have used other breads in similar recipes and it was delicious! I think it would work just fine!

  11. I make an overnight french toast dish that is super easy and my family loves it. But it doesn’t have apples in it so this sounds even yummier. I’m going to have to try this even though it sounds like a little more time is involved LOL! Thank you for sharing this recipe!!

  12. This recipe looks amazing. I traditionally make a banana bread pudding for Christmas breakfast and this looks like a good alternative. I have one question though: the picture shows the apples on top but the recipe instructions have the apples on the bottom. Is this just an oversight and the apple mixture really should be on the top? Thanks.

  13. I have a couple of cans of apple pie filling (leftover from camping season for pudgie pies)…do you think that thry work in place of the apples?

  14. This looks fantastic! Do you cook it in a 9×13 Pyrex pan, then invert into a serving dish?
    Thank you so much!

  15. This is brilliant! Can’t wait to make it this weekend for our lazy Sunday breakfast.

  16. Can this be frozen?
