Caramel Apple French Toast (Adapted for Recipes from Home - A Collection Favorites compiled by Ruth J Steinfeldt)

1/2 cup butter

1 1/4 cup packed brown sugar

1 tablespoon milk

3 apples, peeled and sliced (I used one apple, but could have used more apples)

cinnamon

1 loaf French bread

1 1/2 cup milk

6 eggs

2 teaspoon vanilla

In a saucepan, combine butter, brown sugar, and milk. Bring to a full boil. Pour in a 9 x 13 inch pan. Lay apple slices in rows on top of cooled caramel. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Slice French bread in 1 1/2 inch thick pieces. Lay over apple layer. Beat milk, eggs, and vanilla well. Pour over bread layer. Cover and chill overnight. Bake at 350 degrees for 50 to 60 minutes or until light brown and crispy.
