Fabulous recipe, though a bit basic and after reading through previous users' reviews I made some tweaks per their suggestions as follows:
Cream Cheese - I spread on bread prior to cubing. Time consuming to cut up bread with cream cheese but worth it as I don't like chunks of cream cheese as was suggested by the original recipe.
Eggs - I used 8. Will use 6 next time.
Spices - I added 1 tsp cinnamon and 1 tsp nutmeg, and .25 tsp cloves. I sprinkled a bit of brown sugar over the apples as well since some users suggested it wasn't sweet enough.
Apples - I opted for 1 large can of apple pie filling but felt I could have used 2 cans, though next time I will use 1 can apple pie filling and maybe 2 medium fresh apples for a bit of "crunch".
Baking temp/time - Per users' reviews, I baked uncovered at 350 degrees for 60 minutes. Perfect! Not soggy in the least. Refrigerates well, and tastes even better the next morning in my husband's opinion ;-) I think that if you are a real cook you will love it. For those who said it was bland or soggy, my thoughts are that they are beginner or amatuer cooks bc this was my first time making it and I am by no means a professional chef and it was super easy to prep Christmas Eve, and even easier to pop in the oven the next morning for Christmas breakfast. Perfect timing - pop in before presents and voila! Complete breakfast is ready by the time the gifts are unwrapped and GREAT when you are feeding a large crowd! Happy cooking my friend ;-)
