Slice bread into 1-1/2 inch slices. Spray 9 x 13-inch glass pan with margarine or cooking spray. Place bread in the baking dish with sides touching (snug fit). In a bowl, beat together eggs, 1/2 C. sugar, milk, and vanilla with whisk, for about 30 seconds. Pour one half of egg mixture over bread. Peel, core, and slice apples. Place sliced apples on top of bread to cover. Pour balance of egg mixture evenly over apples. Mix remaining 1/2 C. sugar with cinnamon and nutmeg and sprinkle evenly over top of apples. Dot with butter and whipped topping. Cover and refrigerate overnight. In the morning, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Uncover dish and bake in oven for 1 hour. Remove from oven and allow to rest for 5 to 10 minutes before serving. Cut into squares and serve with warm syrup or powdered sugar.

  • What kind of apples did you use? My plan was to use Rome apples.

  • How long before baking would you say to take from refrigerator? Maybe 30 minutes? Those who have made it, if you see this, did you put it directly from refrigerator into oven?

  • This sounded ideal for Christmas morning brunch, and it was. Our friends really enjoyed it with bacon and sausage as side dishes. I did not need the # of apples indicated -- you can probably do it with 2 or 3. Also, I used a combination of eggs and egg whites for the egg requirement, as well as, a mixture of Splenda and sugar instead of all sugar. The dish was very sweet and the vanilla & cinammon were the dominant flavors. In all, it was a perfect brunch party dish! AND you could make it

  • Excellent, bring along the recipe when you serve 'cuz others always want it. I was only able to use 2-3 apples, not enough room in the pan for more. Also, did not use all the cinnamon sugar mix over the top, but what remained I saved for use on my toast.
    IF there is any leftovers, they microwave great too!

  • This recipe is just excellent easy fast and healthy. You can't ask for more than that.Use grain bread, egg beaters and splenda for a diabeitc version of it. The taste is the same.
