Cinnamon Apple French Toast Casserole
A great overnight breakfast casserole, this french toast casserole has great flavor with brioche, chunks of apples, and a cinnamon custard that creates a creamy casserole.

Slice the brioche bread into chunks. I sliced each slice of brioche into 9 pieces.
Place the brioche chunks into a large buttered baking dish.
Empty the apple pie filing onto a cutting board and cut the apple chunks into bite-sized pieces.
Sprinkle the apple chunks over the top of the brioche pieces.
In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, heavy cream, sugar, vanilla, and cinnnamon.
Pour the egg mixture over the top of the brioche chunks.
Baking Now or Later
If you want to bake the french toast casserole now proceed to the topping section and preheat your oven to 350°.
If you want to wait to the next morning to bake, cover with plastic wrap and place in your refrigerator until the next day.
If your casserole has been in the refrigerator overnight, remove the place on your counter.
Preheat your oven to 350°. In a small saucepan, melt your butter.
Once the butter is melted, add the brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt.
Stir until it's all combined, then drizzle on top of the breakfast casserole.
Bake the casserole for 45-60 minutes until the top of the casserole is browning.
Let it cool 15-20 minutes before serving.
The leftover casserole can be stored in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
