Recipe Directions

Spray 13×9-inch glass baking dish with no-stick cooking spray; set aside.

Cook bacon over medium heat in 10-inch skillet just until browned (6 to 8 minutes); drain well. Place into resealable plastic food bag; refrigerate until ready to use.

Cut 3-inch slit in side of each bread slice, cutting almost through. Place 1/2 slice cheese and 2 apple slices into each slit. Place bread slices into prepared dish, cut-side down.

Combine milk, brown sugar, eggs and 1 teaspoon cinnamon in medium bowl; beat at medium speed until well mixed. Pour mixture over bread. Combine sugar and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon in small bowl; sprinkle over top. Drizzle with melted butter. Cover tightly with plastic food wrap; refrigerate at least 4 hours or overnight.

Heat oven to 350°F. Uncover; top with bacon pieces. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes or until puffed and set. Serve warm with maple syrup.
