Michelle Stuck


Bread - French, Italian or regular wheat - day old is best
Sliced Apples
Cream cheese

6 large eggs
1-1/2 c. half and half
1-1/2 c. milk
1 tsp. vanilla
1/8 tsp. cinnamon
1/8 tsp. nutmeg

1/2 c. melted butter or margarine
2 Tbsp. corn syrup
1 c. brown sugar
1 c. chopped pecans or walnuts

Spray a 13x9 baking pan or dish with non-stick butter spray. Line bottom of pan with 1" thick slices of French, Italian bread or regular wheat bread; day-old really works best!

Add small dollops or slices of cold cream cheese over bread and sliced apples. Add second layer of bread. (I often omit cream cheese, because I donít have it!!)

Beat eggs and add, stir in next 5 ingredients. Pour over bread in pan, cover and refrigerate overnight or at least 4 hours.

Take out 1/2 hour before baking to warm - then prepare and add topping. Spread over top of soaked bread. Bake at 350 degrees about 40 minutes, or until clearly set in middle - it will puff up - put a cookie sheet underneath to avoid spills in oven.

Take out of oven and allow to rest for 5 minutes or so before slicing and serving to aid in preserving shape of slice. Keeps well on hot serving plate. This will serve six easily, especially with other foods for breakfast. It is very tasty.
