Original recipe yields 1 - 9x13 inch pan

Directions

  1. Grease a 9x13 inch baking pan. In a small bowl, stir together the melted butter, brown sugar and cinnamon.
  2. Spread the sugar mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan. Spread the apple pie filling evenly over the sugar mixture. Layer the bread slices on top of the filling, pressing down as you go. In a medium bowl, beat the eggs with the milk and vanilla. Slowly pour this mixture over the bread, making sure that it is completely absorbed. Cover the pan with aluminum foil and refrigerate overnight.
  3. In the morning, preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  4. Place covered pan into the oven and bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 60 to 75 minutes. When done remove from oven and turn on broiler. Remove foil and drizzle maple syrup on top of the egg topping; broil for 2 minutes, or until the syrup begins to caramelize. Remove from the oven and let stand for 10 minutes, then cut into squares. Invert the pan onto a serving tray or baking sheet so the apple filling is on top. Serve hot.

I have made this recipe a couple of times and everyone has loved it!!! A couple of things I noticed is that I could only fit about 9 slices of bread in the pan before it started overflowing and it took 1 1/2 hours for mine to cook. I think next time I make it I will only use one can of apple pie filling and then I will be able to add more bread. Also make sure you spray the foil or it will stick.

This recipe was amazing. I chose it because, unlike many of the other "make ahead" french toast recipes, it truly was 100% ready to go in the morning. Just pop it in the oven. When I made it I used one can of apples, and made sure it was apples and water only--no high fructose corn syrup--to keep the recipe from being over-the-top sweet. The apples turned out so delicious, next time I probably will use two cans. I used Pepperidge Farm cinnamon raisin bread, and baked for 90 minutes. Everything else I kept exactly the same. I used a cake pan and had no problems with it boiling over. I didn't turn it upside down, and I thought it made a very nice presentation "as is" with the cinnamon swirl bread. The bread wasn't incredibly crispy, as pan fried French toast can be, but it certainly wasn't gooey either. I think using a slightly more substantial bread, like Italian or the cinnamon swirl, instead of white or French, makes a big difference. I made it for a brunch for 11 people, and everyone absolutely raved about it. It was so incredibly simple--15 minutes the night before and you're done. This will definitely become a staple in my house. Thanks for a real keeper! Note: I made this again and didn't bake it as long. Yuck! Make sure you bake it long enough.

The flavor of this french toast is really great, but you really need to make sure this is cooked completely through! At 60 minutes, mine looked done, but was still very wet at the bottom of the bread layer. We had to do a little improvising under the broiler, but all reviews were still very positive! This is a keeper for sure... longer cook time and maybe a little less milk. Yummy!
