Serving this on Christmas morning is a tradition in our home. It's wonderful because I can make it the night before and pop it in the oven while we are opening gifts. —Jill Peterson, Richfield, Wisconsin

"I love this French toast recipe because you can prepare it the night before and refrigerate it. Then just pop it in the oven in the morning. The recipe went together quickly. I used Granny Smith apples and I used a thin baguette for the French bread A slightly tricky part is turning the dish out onto a platter (yes, I used my turkey platter - LOL). This is where helpful husbands come in handy. This recipe is awesome. I can promise you that we will have this winner again."
