I tried this and loved it! If you like french toast and you like apple pie, you’ll love this! I just had to share this recipe…I was invited to dinner this evening and was served Apple Pie made with sliced white bread for dessert. It was really good, I would never have believed it was bread as the crust!! It is something I would make for a family dessert in a pinch!! Try it, it’s really different but good!
