This is a great make-ahead breakfast that will fill your home with the holiday aromas of cinnamon, spice and apples. It is a "soak overnight" casserole that mimics the flavors of french toast. Call it bread pudding if you like, but I know you'll call it delicious. It makes holiday morning cooking a breeze. I think I must have gotten this recipe from Taste of Home.

Very good! My in-laws loved this when we had them over for a Saturday morning breakfast. I made just a few changes...I added an extra apple, used 3 Tbsp. of butter instead of 5, used light corn syrup instead of dark, and added pecans. Took 45 minutes. Yummy!!!
