Baked Apple French Toast

Yield: 8 servings
3 large green apples
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup (or more) brown sugar
12 ounces cream cheese (cut this into tiny cubes)
12 slices firm bread - (I used eight grain and it was yummy and full of Omega 3)
8 eggs
2 cups milk
2 tablespoons vanilla

Set rack in lower third of oven and preheat oven to 350F. Butter a 13 x 9 inch baking pan. Core and cut the apples into thin wedges, leaving the skin on or you may remove skin. In a skillet, melt butter with brown sugar and 1 tablespoon water. Add the apples and cook, stirring for 2 to 3 minutes.Transfer to the baking dish and let cool. Cut cream cheese into cubes and arrange evenly over the apples. cut the slices of bread in half diagonally and layer over the apples to cover the whole dish. In a large mixing bowl, beat together eggs, milk and vanilla. Pour the egg mixture over the bread, taking care to dampen all the bread. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Bake for 40 to 50 minutes, until golden and puffed. Let cool 10 minutes before serving.
