Although I found this a tad dry (I think I'll add a little more milk next time), I loved the way some of the cubes of bread pop through the top and get lovely and crunchy, especially once you add the caramel sauce. This was a great (and economical) way to use up leftover egg whites from other recipes that required only yolks. I also had 1/2 can of leftover unsweetened pie apples which I pureed and added as the applesauce. The sweet crunch of this dish goes very well with pouring custard. Thanks for a keeper!
