Sometimes, I find great recipes out of necessity. I had some leftover sourdough bread that I needed to do something with. So, I went looking for something on the web. I was thinking about finding some kind of baked French toast and found this. On Recipezaar they actually call it Apple Strata, but I changed the name of the recipe to Apple Baked French Toast. This turned out to be really delicious.
The only problem was the top ended up to be quite crunchy. Next time, I think I’ll cover it for the first 25 minutes of cooking and the cook it uncovered for the remaining 25 minutes. Hopefully that will solve that problem. I loved the combo of the cream cheese, apple, spices, and the sourdough along with the maple syrup. It Apple Baked French Toast is another recipe that made my mouth scream fall. On trick to this recipe is when you pour the milk/egg mixture over the bread, you need to do it slowly and make sure those bread cubes on the top each get coated.
