This was a fantastic Christmas morning breakfast treat! We tried half with nuts and half without, as my husband doesn't like nuts in his food. However, as much as I enjoy nuts in recipes, I preferred it without the nuts.
I made this for a roommate's birthday brunch and it was a big success. I used gala apples because they were on sale. I added a pinch of nutmeg and a teaspoon of vanilla extract to the milk mixture to make it almost like a French toast casserole. Everyone loved it, some people put maple syrup over it. I would definitely make this again.
This was really good and it reheated well.
I use cinnamon raisin bread, Granny Smith apples (like it better than the golden delicious) as well as a mix of Egg Beaters and a couple of real eggs (I ended up using more egg mixture than the recipe calls for, but my family likes it better this way). We make this recipe for Christmas brunch as well as Easter brunch and it always gets rave reviews. People are always asking if there are any leftovers and I hear it's good the next day as well.
This was amazing and easy. Great for meatless Fridays during lent. However it would be great with some sausage and a fruit salad. My family really enjoyed it.
This was not at all as I expected. It was somewhat mushy and not very flavorful. I don't know if it was the bread that I used or not.
This was the hit of the morning. It was sweet with out over kill. It was gone before anyone could have thirds! I used a really lovely dense local bakery bread which I think is what makes it.
One star is harsh, but we wouldn't make again - I was the only 1 of 4 people who ate this breakfast that actually thought it tasted pretty good (not stellar, but good). The other 3 who I served it too resoundingly did not like it at all and I was forced to make a second breakfast (yes, they thought it was that bad). Such a waste; and especially disappointing as I made for Christmas day breakfast! I made exactly as directed and all who tried it said it was bland and / or the texture was not their cup of tea. The apples were the only redeeming quality for this dish. Definitely will not be making again; just not for us I guess.
Great make ahead breakfast! I had already made holiday pecans with ginger and sugar and forgot to set some aside for this recipe. I cut back on the sugar added in the recipe and used the spiced pecans and it came out great..we also served it with a little maple syrup.
YUM!!! Definitely a breakfast worthy of a special occasion or treat. We lightly drizzled with maple syrup, and I'm thinking a little dollop of whipped cream would be great. Can't beat having "dessert" for breakfast.
This is delicious and super easy to make! It has received rave reviews for the two different events I have brought it to.
Excellent. My 14 year old loved it.
