Apple Pie French Toast Casserole

Apple Pie French Toast Casserole is an overnight breakfast casserole with apple pie filling, cinnamon, and caramel sauce. This fall recipe is perfect for a crowd.

Apple Pie French Toast Casserole


Assemble it the night before and pop it in the oven when you wake up. Forty-five minutes later you have a wonderfully delicious French toast casserole with lots of apple flavor. The bread pieces on top get crunchy and crispy and are a nice contrast to the soft, moist apple pie filling which bakes down into the casserole. I put just a thin layer of steusel on top for even more texture contrast.

Tips for making Apple Pie French Toast Casserole:

  • I drizzle jarred caramel sauce over the casserole, but maple syrup could be used instead. I find it hard to beat the flavor combination of apples and caramel.
  • You want to use a somewhat stale loaf of bread. I use French bread, but Italian would work too or even challah bread.
  • I use a can of apple pie filling, but you could make a homemade appple pie filling if you have fresh apples you want to use.
  • To make this casserole even creamier and richer, use half-and-half instead of milk.
  • The streusel can be made the night before and sprinkled on just before baking. Keep it refrigerated.

  1. Easy to make, except I am new to cooking, and when you make the strusel topping. It was to thick to sprinkle on. Not sure if I did something wrong. But it still tasted delicious

  2. This was easy to throw together and was delicious! I did not do the caramel sauce but it was still very good. Will definitely make again for future brunches.

  3. This is a fantastic dish! I always read the comments and suggestions that people wrote, so wanted to share some of the things I did different too! I had used cinnamon raisin bread, and used the advice someone else suggested, and cut it into cubes. I put it all on a cookie sheet in a 350 oven for about 15 minutes, just to “crisp it up” a little bit. I used almond milk, since the people I was cooking for were lactose intolerant, which worked just fine. I added some chopped nuts to the topping, and I tossed a handful or two of blueberries on the top, before the crumb topping. I skipped the caramel sauce, since I didn’t want it overly sweet for them, and it didn’t need it! It was delicious, and has made it’s way to the top of my favorite list! You could probably use any flavor of pie filling, but the apple was super good!

  4. My family and I thought this was delicious. I used brioche bread, half and half, and baked for the full 50 minutes. I did not drizzle with caramel or use syrup, the apple pie filling and streusel topping were perfect as is.

    Turned out excellent. Served to church people after church coffee hour. Was gone in minutes.

  6. Beloved by all. Note that it puffs up to plan against oven drips. Left it in ten minutes extra, added personal touches of nutmeg and cardamom, and skipped the caramel.

  7. I made this for Thanksgiving breakfast and we all loved it. I have just made it again for Christmas Eve brunch. So easy and excellent.

  8. Looking through my pantry last night to see what I had on hand, I was looking specifically for a breakfast recipe utilizing apple pie filling and your recipe was the first to pop up. I served it to our home church crowd this morning and it was gone in minutes! I love a good breakfast casserole that you can whip up the day before and just stick in the oven the next morning. Everyone raved about this and the women promptly asked for the recipe. Thanks for putting this out there to share!

  9. Made this tonight with my own twist added lemon pie filling and added blueberries to the topping can’t wait ..thank you for the recipe 🥰

  10. Very good and love the addition of the caramel sauce! I have a personal aversion to soggy bread and my French bread was not stale, so I popped my cubed bread in a 350° oven for about 30 minutes till they were not quite a crouton but a little toasted and they held up perfect! Will be making this for our church Senior breakfast this Sunday!

  11. OMG this looks heavenly!!! I’m printing recipe off as I type… will be trying this soon. 🙂 Thanks so much!!

  12. Very Delicious!! I did make one change to recipe instead of using all cinnamon I use half cinnamon and half nutmeg. THX for the recipe.

    1. I refuse to use apple pie filling in anything! 🤮🤮 This would be even better with fresh apples.
