  1. Grease a 9x13 inch baking pan. In a small bowl, stir together the melted butter, brown sugar and cinnamon.
  2. Spread the sugar mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan. Spread the apple pie filling evenly over the sugar mixture. Layer the bread slices on top of the filling, pressing down as you go. In a medium bowl, beat the eggs with the milk and vanilla. Slowly pour this mixture over the bread, making sure that it is completely absorbed. Cover the pan with aluminum foil and refrigerate overnight.
  3. In the morning, preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  4. Place covered pan into the oven and bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 60 to 75 minutes. When done remove from oven and turn on broiler. Remove foil and drizzle maple syrup on top of the egg topping; broil for 2 minutes, or until the syrup begins to caramelize. Remove from the oven and let stand for 10 minutes, then cut into squares. Invert the pan onto a serving tray or baking sheet so the apple filling is on top. Serve hot.

This was good but the bread was quite soggy. It was more like bread pudding than French toast. I probably won't make it again.

HUGE hit with my husband and everyone at the office. Instead of usung canned apple pie filling, I sauteed my own in a little butter and maple syrup. This made it *perfect*!!!!

Mmmm great recipe! The only reason it did not receive 5 stars is because we did find it a little sweet for breakfast. I will definitely make this dish again for brunch, but I think next time I...
