Ingredients
  • 1 loaf sour dough bread cubed
  • 2 apples peeled, cored and diced small
  • 8 large eggs
  • 2 ¼ cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
Streusel
  • ½ cup flour
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup oatmeal
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ cup butter melted
Instructions
  1. Cut the sour dough bread into cubes, approximately 1-2” in size. Set aside.
  2. Peel, core and finely chop the apples. Set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, beat together the eggs, milk, cinnamon, brown sugar and vanilla extract until well combined. Add the apple pieces and bread into the bowl and stir gently to combine. Press the bread down gentely with the spoon or your hands to help the bread absorb some of the egg mixture.
  4. Transfer the bread mixture into a well greased 9x13” casserole dish.
  5. If you are making it for the next morning, cover the casserole dish with plastic food wrap and keep in the fridge overnight.
  6. To make the streusel, combine the flour, brown sugar, oatmeal and cinnamon together in a small bowl. Stir with a fork to combine. Slowly add the melted butter into the mixture, stirring to make a crumb like texture with the fork. Cover and store in the fridge until you are ready to bake the French toast.
  7. The next morning, remove the French toast dish and streusel from the fridge and preheat your oven to 375 F.
  8. Stir the streusel with a fork to achieve the crumb like texture if it hardened overnight in the fridge. Sprinkle the streusel over top of the French toast.
  9. Place the French toast in the oven, uncovered, and bake for 50 – 60 minutes, depending on how cooked you like your French toast. My husband prefers for it to be well done so I cook it for at least the 60 minutes.
  10. Remove the French toast casserole once cooked and serve hot. The dish is even more delicious with a drizzle maple syrup overtop.
