    Do you think this could be frozen? Have a loaf of bread I need to use but don't need the casserole until Christmas.

    My absolute favorite breakfast option! Love the fact that it can be made ahead or the morning of. I often make 2 at a time, especially if we have a company. Very delicious, filling, perfect with coffee or hot tea. I add chopped pecans between the cooked apples and bread for extra flavor.

    Made this during the COVID-19 Outbreak for a stay at home Quarantine treat. We followed the recipe to the exact point and let it sit overnight. It came out absolutely perfect. It tastes like my Grandmothers bread custard with Amazing Apple pie filling baked beneath

    What is Italian bread? (Besides going to Italy and buying a loaf of bread)

    Easy to make. Everyone loved it but all suggested doubling apple portion. Will definitely try that recommendation next time. Disclaimer: served it directly from my 13x9 dish. Doubling the sweetened apples may make a transfer to serving plate not possible ??
