Ingredients

  • 6 eggs ($.60)
  • 1 cup milk ($.10) I used rice milk
  • 1 tsp cinnamon ($.05)
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg ($.02)
  • 4 medium or 3 large apples, ($1) On sale 4/$1 this week! peeled and diced
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted ($.40) I used a dairy-free margarine
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar ($.20)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon ($.05)
  • 6 slices of bread, torn ($.30)
  • 1/2 Cantaloupe ($.75) On sale 2 weeks ago for $1.49!
  • Syrup (optional...I thought it sweet enough and syrup unnecessary!)
  • 6-8 Sausage Links or Turkey bacon ($1.49)

Instructions

  • In a mixing bowl, whisk eggs, milk, cinnamon and nutmeg.
  • Peel and dice the apples. In a smaller mixing bowl, combine melted butter, brown sugar and cinnamon. Toss with diced apples.
  • In a greased 8×8-inch glass baking dish, tear 3 slices of bread and add to the bottom. Then add a layer of the diced caramel apples.
  • Tear the other 3 slices of bread and spread on top of the apples.
  • Pour egg/milk mixture into the baking dish. Cover with foil and let stand in the refrigerator for at least an hour (overnight, ideally!). Preheat oven to 350.
  • Bake covered for 30 minutes, then uncover and bake another 15-20 minutes, or until eggs have cooked through.
  • Serve Caramel Apple Breakfast Casserole with fresh fruit and sausage or bacon.
