Baked Apple French Toast Casserole

I've been trying to cook with apples before fall is over.  I saw this Baked Apple French Toast Casserole and knew that the kids would love it.  I pre-made it the night before so all it had to do the next day was bake.  It was a perfect breakfast for dinner meal.  The kids love french toast, which I don't make very often.  They especially loved the addition of the apples to one of their favorite breakfast meals.  This is a great weekend brunch dish and if you have a chunk of time to let it cook, a good breakfast for dinner meal.
