Caramel Apple Breakfast Casserole

I found this delicious recipe over at $5 Dinners. This meal is rated as "do again" by Mike which is the highest rating possible in our house. I don't think this picture does this casserole any justice but I wanted post a picture with the recipe.
Caramel Apple Breakfast Casserole
6 eggs
1 cup milk
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
4 apples, peeled and diced
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
6 slices of bread, torn

Whisk together eggs, milk, cinnamon and nutmeg and set aside. In a separate bowl, combine melted butter, brown sugar and diced apples. Grease an 8X8 inch glass baking dish, tear 3 slices of bread and add to the bottom. Layer apple mixture and tear remaining 3 slices of bread on top. Pour egg mixture over all the bread. Cover with foil and put in fridge overnight. In the morning, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake covered for 30 minutes, then uncover and bake another 15 to 20 minutes or until eggs have cooked through.

If you'd like you can serve with syrup but it's sweet enough to enjoy alone. However I would totally recommend serving it with bacon or sausage. It will make a perfect sweet and salty combination!
