    This is a wonderful recipe,simple and yummy!!! Just what you need when you're trying to satisfy grumpy teens who are groggy from a sleepover. Everyone loves warm apples and sweet bread--even those who usually don't like eggs, like this dish. I did double the apple filling, add another egg, and poured a tad more milk and vanilla (guess I let the bread soak too long). Some guests like extra like a little more sweetness than others, so I offer warm maple syrup. I like making this dish at night and cooking in the a.m. I'm usually more grumpy than the teens and really appreciate the ease of slipping the already-prepared mixture in the oven.

    This was our Christmas morning breakfast. Everyone loved it. It was great to use up the day old French bread that I just happened to have in the house. Thanks, Mysterygirl.

    This was really good. Made it with brown sugar bread, sprinkling raisins on top of the apple pie filling. We felt it was sweet enough without sugar, kind or reminds me of a pastry almost. It's very yummy. Ty for the recipe :)

    This was very good. I used 1 21 ounce can of blueberry pie filling and it was enough to cover the entire 9x13 pan. I also refrigerated it overnight for the next morning and it turned out great with about 15 more minutes in the oven. I also used Texas Toast because it was what I had on hand. Very good!

    We had this for breakfast this morning and enjoyed it very much! I did use two cans of apple pie filling as mentioned in the posted reviews, raisin bread, and added a little nutmeg. Refrigerated overnight and did bake this a little longer. The apples with the raisin bread, so very good! Served with a little warmed syrup and a sprinkle of confectioner sugar.
