Ingredients

  • 20 slices French bread (1 inch thick)
  • 1 can (21 ounces) apple pie filling
  • 8 large eggs, lightly beaten

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • TOPPING:
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar

Directions

  1. Arrange 10 slices of bread in a greased 13x9-in. baking dish. Spread with pie filling; top with remaining bread. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg. Pour over bread. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
