Baked Apple French Toast

This is a Lion House recipe that we LOVE at our house!

1 loaf French bread, sliced in 1½ inch slices (I use regular bread, stacked 3 slices high)
6 eggs
1½ cups milk
1 tbsp. vanilla
6 medium apples, peeled and sliced
1½ tsp. ground cinnamon
½ tsp. ground nutmeg
3 tbsp. packed brown sugar
Caramel Sauce (see below)

The night before serving, coat a 9X13-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Layer bread slices on the bottom of the pan. Combine eggs, milk, sugar, and vanilla in a large bowl, beat well and pour over bread slices. Place apple slices on top of bread. Sprinkle apples with cinnamon, nutmeg and brown sugar. Cover with foil and refrigerate overnight. In the morning, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake, covered, about 50 minutes. Remove foil and bake 10 minutes more. Serve toast hot, topped with Caramel Sauce.

Caramel Sauce
3/4 c. packed brown sugar
¼ c. flour
½ c. butter, melted
1½ c. milk
2 tsp. vanilla

Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan and cook over medium heat until thick, stirring constantly.
