This is more like a dessert. This version uses bread instead of lasagna noodles and the end result is a delicious apple, bread, cheese pudding. Your guests will love and request the recipe.
1 cup sour cream
1/3 cup brown sugar
12 slices French bread or challah
1 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, grated
3/4 cup Monterrey jack cheese, grated
1 large can apple pie filling
1 cup granola, with raisins or cranberries
Preheat oven to 350.
In a bowl combine the sour cream and brown sugar, mix and set aside in the refrigerator.
In a bowl mix together the cheese. Grease a 9 x 13 baking pan. Place 6 pieces of French bread or challah on the bottom of the pan and spread 1/2 of the can of pie filling on top of the bead. Then sprinkle 1/2 of the cheese on top of the apple pie filling then top with the remaining bread slices. Spread the remaining apple filling over the top of the bread and then sprinkle the top with the granola.
Bake for 25 minutes. Top with the remaining cheese and bake an additional 5 to 10 more minutes until the cheese is melted and bubbly. Serve with the sweetened sour cream.
