From the "Circle of Friends: 25 Breakfast and Brunch Recipes" by Gooseberry Patch, tweaked to my own preferences.
This requires being prepared the night before, and cooked in the morning.
12 slices thick white bread
1 (21oz) can of apple pie filling
8 eggs, lightly beaten
2 cups milk
2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter, cubed
1/2 cup maple syrup
Arrange 6 slices in a greased 9x13 pan. Spread with pie filling. Top with remaining bread slices.
In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Poor over bread. Cover and refrigerate over night.
Next Morning: Remove from refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Meanwhile place the brown sugar in a small bowl. Cut in butter until it resembles small crumbs.
Sprinkle over the top. Drizzle maple syrup over french toast.
Bake uncovered at 350* for 35-40 minutes.

This is half a "serving" according to the recipe. It all depends on how you want to cut it, and how much you want to eat. Enjoy!!
