This is so delicious and has been a hit every time I've made it. It is really easy and looks very elegant when served. Great for overnight guests.

No syrup needed for this. The brown sugar, butter and apples provide all the wonderful flavor needed and of course the creme topping doesn't hurt either.

This is a really good and impressive breakfast casserole for you to serve to guests. The picture shows the dish during preparation - and it only gets better from there! It's great to find such a tasty dish that can also be prepared ahead of time. I especially enjoyed the cream topping; I think it would make a wonderful dip for fruit too! The Test Kitchen
