    Just finished scarfing a serving of this delicious breakfast! The house smells fabulous! I ALWAYS have to tweak recipes to fit my STRICT low-calorie diet. I shaved TONS of calories by using Sara Lee delightful wheat bread. I only used 14 (45 calorie)slices and COULD'VE gotten by with only 10 or 12! (I'll remember that next time.) I also cut the eggs to 5 and only used 1 and 1/4 cup of SKIM milk and only 2 apples. This still FILLED my glass 9 X 13 pan so the lesser total ingredients worked just great for me. I finished the topping with a dusting of Splenda over the whole top before baking. My calorie totals per serving was 164.42 calories and 1.92g fat!!!!! BTW...THAT INCLUDED THE LOW CAL BREAD!! (This was NOT included in recipe as posted.) My next batch will be even lower in calories/fat because I will use only 10 slices of bread. I can't WAIT to make it again! Thanks for an awesome new low-cal breakfast!

    This was actually pretty good. I did make a few adjustment to accomodate my family. I used 3/4ths the amount of bread and also added a cup of low fat soy milk (for a total of 2 1/2cups). I used half egg substitue and 3 whole eggs. Peeled the apples. Cut the baking time to 30 minutes and the oven temp to 325. I topped it with "smart blend" and sugar free maple syrup. I would make this again as my family did enjoy it.

    I followed JVO's review and used 11 slices of bread, egg beaters, and skim milk, also I peeled the apples. This was absolute PERFECTION!!!! We all LOVED it!

    I halved this recipe--it made up very easy and looked great. I baked it in a round throwaway tin. Very quick.

    This was very popular with my teenage daughter and her friends the morning after a sleepover. It tastes sort of like a cinnamon roll with apples. I used Orowheat buttermilk bread (it's not low cal). I used 1/4 cup real maple syrup in the liquid instead of the honey, and used the 1/2 cup honey on top. I precooked the granny smith apples in the microwave for 6 min. so they wouldn't be crunchy, and I used only 1/4 t of salt. It did burn a bit on top and bottom, so next time I'll lower the oven temp. Most french toast casseroles are loaded with fat - thanks for posting this one - I'll be making it again!


I am a mother of three and live in central Pennsylvania. My children were very active in after school activities and found we weren't spending anytime together at meal time. In 1998, I decided to start cooking my dinners in a crockpot so that we could have a home cooked meal together once everyone came home. My children now get so excited to see what we are having to eat and love the smell when they walk in the door. My family calls me the crock pot queen. LOL I use my crock pot everyday of the year. <br> <br>My three children are now in college and before they come home they request their favorite meal. I still continue to cook in the crock pot for my husband and I. It is nice after a long day to know your meal is ready. It also helps in keeping my grocery bill down. With zaar, I can print my shopping list and that is all I purchase is the ingredients on that list. <br> <br>Now, my two daughters have been crock pot cooking while in college. They find it is easy to cook for the themselves and their friends. It is an easy way to have friends over for dinner after classes <br> <br>I still love trying new recipes and purchasing cookbooks, especially crock pot cookbooks. <br> <br>Happy Cooking!
