Overnight Streusel Apple Cinnamon French Toast
We have joined forces at The 30 Day Recipe Challenge to celebrate apples! They are a fantastic fall fruit that go so well in many dishes from breakfast right through to dessert. After checking out our recipe be sure to scroll down and see what else everyone has brought, lots of delicious recipes for you to choose from.
I made for you for this event Overnight Streusel Apple Cinnamon French Toast. This is like an apple crisp joined french toast and they had this offspring! Or two pages of the recipe book stuck together from breakfast and dessert. It is wonderful and a big scoop will be welcomed at your next brunch.
This is lovely and sweet and has the wonderful crunchy topping with the soft underlying french toast therefore a wickedly good combination. This would be the best to wake up to in the morning for the holidays. The french toast can be made the night before and the streusel topping also. The next morning all you need to do is chop up some apples and sprinkle on the streusel and pop it into the oven for an hour. Which is a nice long time so you can prepare other dishes. Crispy salty bacon or sausage would go lovely with the sweetness of this dish.
This recipe makes a lovely big 9×13″ pan to feed a hungry crowd. If you adore apple crisp then you will be head over heels for this brunch casserole.
