    Fantastic! I also added a pinch of nutmeg to the apples.

    This recipe tasted good. I doubled the recipe and used wheat sandwich bread instead of French bread.

    This is a 5 star recipe for my entire family and my youngest child requests it at least once a week.

    Delicious. Will make double the apple topping as it is so good and didn't last long. May use the apple recipe for dessert toppings as well. Restaurant quality. Thanks for sharing :)
