Disclaimer: Thank you to #AppleWeek Sponsors: Rodelle, Dreamfarm, Casabella, Flahavan's Irish Oatmeal, Pryex, Chicago Cutlery, Rainier Fruit, and Veggie Wash for providing prizes for #AppleWeek free of charge. These companies also provided the bloggers with samples and product to use for #AppleWeek. All opinions are my own.

I've taken my classic Freezer Meal French Toast Casserole and completely turned it into an instant Autumn Fair Grand Champion Winner! I promise, you make this for a family gathering, or potluck and you won't bring home any left overs!

The scents of  apples, cinnamon, and the Brown Sugar Oatmeal Cobbler Topping all baking, will fill your home with  such a divine aroma, that your family will be drawn to the table!

Jan's Tips:
Milk Substitutions:  You can easily use any combination of milk products, including almond or soy type milks. It may slightly change the taste or texture some, but not by much. A small price to pay if milk choices are something that is important to you! I recently had to make a change to Soy milk for health reasons.  Today I went ahead and tried it in today's recipe. It did great! 

Time: You should let this Soak Overnight before baking, but in a pinch you can  bake this earlier, by letting it soak in the fridge for at least several hours. It's not as Ideal, but you can do it.  You can premake and freeze the egg/milk & bread mixture in a freezer bag or container and then thaw in refrigerator overnight prior to baking, as well. Then proceed with mixing in apples, and topping 

Apples: Choose a good, crisp & firm apple to bake with. I used  organic Honey Crisp Apples sent to me by Rainier Fruit Company, and were PERFECT for this recipe!

Sponsor Shout out!:  I got to bake my casserole in this pretty new Pyrex dish from their Pyrex Home "Waterfall" collection! It was almost too pretty to use! They have pie plates too that are too die for!  and use these amazing new tools from Dream Farm ! The snip and shear tool snipped right thru my apples, and the measuring cups and spoons that level off your ingredients, such as my Flahavan's Steel Cut Oats and Rodelle Vanilla ?? Filled my dish with quality ingredients that make this dish an instant classic for years to come!  and can I save I've fallen in love with both my new  Cassabella's Veggie Scrubber along with Veggie Wash? ,  Both are the perfect partners to clean off sticker residue, wax and "icky's" off my produce?

Let's get baking!
