Apple French Toast Casserole

I love easy breakfasts, especially around the holidays! This apple french toast casserole is one of my favorites! It is simple to prepare, uses my homemade apple pie filling, and is one of those recipes that you can make the night before which makes it perfect for Christmas morning. It allows me to spend time with the family on Christmas morning rather than in the kitchen cooking. 

I love this recipe because it is 

  • Moist on the inside and crispy on the outside
  • Easy to make
  • Perfect Make ahead dish
  • Filled with delicious apple pie filling

Tips Tricks and FAQs

  • I love using french bread for this recipe, but sourdough also works great. 
  • Be sure to let your casserole sit in the fridge for at least an hour. I always do it overnight because it really allows the egg mixture, and the apple filling to soak into the bread so it is bursting with even more flavor when you are ready to enjoy it. 

Storage

Store your leftover apple french toast casserole in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. 

Why is my french toast casserole soggy?

The number one problem of soggy french toast casserole is adding too much milk to the egg mixture. If there is too much of this mixture it does not cook correctly and the bread will stay soggy even after cooking.

What toppings can I add to this dish?

With the apple pie filling and the streusel you won’t need to add anything else to this dish. But if you would like you can also serve it with 

  • Maple syrup
  • Whipped cream
  • Powdered sugar sprinkled on top
  • Or even a caramel drizzle, yum!
