I started this recipe off with my Cinnamon Raisin Bread Recipe. You could totally use store-bought cinnamon raisin bread too, I don’t judge. If you prefer a plain French bread as the base for this recipe, be sure to add the raisins and about 2 tablespoons of sugar to give the egg mixture the sweetness you’d normally get from the cinnamon raisin bread. Since I’m one of those bacon freaks, I added some bacon too. You don’t have to do this, but OMG it is delicious. The whole sweet and salty thing gets me every time.
- 6 strips bacon, diced
- 6 eggs
- 1 1/2 cups milk
- 6 cups cinnamon raisin bread, store-bought or homemade
- 2 granny smith apples
- 1/2 cup raisins, optional
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9-inch x 13-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
- Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add bacon to the hot skillet and cook until crispy, about 7 to 10 minutes. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate to drain.
- In a large mixing bowl, beat together the eggs and milk.
- Slice the bread into 1/2-inch cubes and place in the mixing bowl.
- Core the apples and cut into bite-sized pieces. Add to the mixing bowl along with 3/4 of the bacon and raisins.
- Mix everything together with a spoon, making sure all of the bread is coated in the egg mixture.
- Pour into your prepared baking dish and spread out to fill the pan. Sprinkle the remaining bacon and raisins on top.
- Bake for 40 minutes or until the casserole is set and golden brown on top. (If the casserole beings to brown too much, loosely cover with foil.)
- Carefully remove from the oven and let stand for 5 minutes before cutting into 8 slices and serving warm.
