I prefer to use unprocessed foods, so I used 6 fresh eggs in place of the 1 1/2 cups of egg substitute. Also, because my apples were large, I only used two Granny Smiths, and I’m glad I did because they do exude a lot of liquid which does not get absorbed into the bread. My baking time was a little longer but that may be because of my oven. The end result was a tasty breakfast.

Made a few tweaks...used Almond Milk instead of milk. Used Earth Balance spread instead of butter. Used 1/4 cup less sugar. Delicious! Made this for Easter brunch, big hit! Will definitely make this again.

Ok------I was lazy and really did not want to peel and core apples, this recipe looked so good I had to try it but I put my spin on it. I used a can of com stock apple pie filling, because it's already sweet I only used a tablespoon of brown sugar, I put the apple pie filling, pecans, dried cranberrys, and butter in a bowl and mixed them, then I poured this into the prepared 13x9 pan. I never have egg substitute on hand so I used another reviewers suggestion and used 6 large eggs, milk and cinnamon. Mixed eggs with other ingredients and poured it over day old Italian bread that I bought and put in fridge to "dry" out a bit, then I followed the directions as written. This is beyond good !! I love that you make it a head of time and let it sit over night, with my family's busy schedule it was a nice treat for my husband to wake up to the great smell of this French toast bake. Thank you for sharing !!!!!

... Also, I found the bread a bit soggy after having it sit for 5 mins. It was less soggy after about 15mins, but it wasn't as warm. Next time, I will make the french toast the traditional way using this egg/milk mixture from this recipe, make the fruit/nut topping separately and just scoop it onto the made french toast.
