Caramel Cinnamon Apple Breakfast Casserole

I didn't have anything planned so it's breakfast for dinner again tonight. I originally got this recipe from $5 dinners. I replaced many ingredients for lower calorie ingredients and saved a ton of calories. Even with the substitutions, it's still a delicious meal whether you enjoy it for breakfast or dinner. Not the prettiest picture of a meal but it was awesome that it felt like I was eating dessert for dinner!

Caramel Apple Breakfast Casserole

1 carton of egg beaters
¾ cup of milk
1 ½ tsp. cinnamon
¼ tsp. nutmeg
4 medium or 3 large apples, peeled and diced
3 tbsp. butter

3 tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. molasses
1 ½ tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. vanilla
1/8 tsp. salt
10 slices of bread, torn (40 calorie bread)

In a bowl, whisk eggs, milk, cinnamon, salt and nutmeg

Peel and dice the apples, in a small bowl, combine butter, splenda, molasses, vanilla and cinnamon. Toss with diced apples.

In a greased 8 x 8 glass baking dish, tear 5 of the bread slices and add to the bottom. Then add a layer of diced caramel apples.

Tear the other 5 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. Preheat oven to 350.

Bake covered for 45 minutes, then uncover and bake another 15 – 20 minutes or until eggs have cooked through.
