Baked Apple Upside Down French Toast Recipe at
Melt butter in large sauté pan and add sliced apples. Top apples with sugar and cinnamon and stir to incorporate. Sauté over medium heat until apples are limp and translucent, about 10 minutes, stirring frequently so they don’t scorch.

Pour apples into a 9 by 13 inch glass ovenproof baking dish. Top with sliced French bread. Fill any spaces with small pieces of sliced bread so that entire surface is covered. Whisk eggs with vanilla, nutmeg, milk and cream. Pour this mixture over the bread evenly so that all pieces absorb the liquid. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until morning.

The next morning, preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Bake French toast for 25 minutes or until bread is golden and custard is set. Invert carefully onto a sheet pan and cut into squares to serve, apple-side-up. You may add the syrup of your choice and a dollop of crème fraiche.

Holy cow is this ever good! It was great to wake up and only have to put this in the oven for a delicious breakfast. We all loved this so I plan to make this on a fairly regular basis. You don't even need the syrup, and it would be so pretty with some powdered sugar sprinkled on and some fresh berries on the side! Served it with some crispy bacon! Yummmmm!
