When my husband and I remodeled our kitchen, the Dacor sales rep sent us a few recipes from their kitchen. I made it this year for Thanksgiving and it was awesome! Even my picky son (who hates everything) loved it! I have finally found the missing link to our holiday dinners! When I prepared this, I almost left out the apples because I thought the "picky one" would discover them and not try it. I decided to go ahead and include them and I am glad I did, they really make the recipe and the kids never even noticed them. Enjoy! One note: My sister made this and substituted the bread cubes with Cornbread stuffing crumbs and really liked it. If you use the french bread cubes, you should brown them in the oven for a little while on a cookie sheet, or leave them out for a few days to dry out.
