    My sister and made this last year and it was really good... we had all of the stuff leftover except we didn't have apple juice. So I think we did more milk...? Not sure. Anyways, it was great! It'll give you some healthier wy to enjoy the leftover rolls and stuff.

    Cranberry-Apple French Toast Casserole

    Ingredients
    2 tablespoons butter
    2 cups diced Granny Smith apple (about 2 apples)
    1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    Dash of ground cloves
    1/4 cup packed brown sugar, divided
    1 pound dinner rolls, quartered
    Cooking spray
    1/2 cup sweetened dried cranberries
    1 1/4 cups apple juice
    1 1/4 cups 1% low-fat milk
    3/4 cup whole-berry cranberry sauce
    1/2 teaspoon grated lemon rind
    1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    6 large eggs, lightly beaten
    1/4 cup sliced almonds, toasted

    Preparation
    Preheat oven to 250°.
    Melt butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add apple, cinnamon, and cloves to pan; cook 10 minutes or until lightly browned, stirring frequently. Stir in 2 tablespoons brown sugar; cook 2 minutes or until sugar melts. Remove from heat.
    Place quartered rolls on a jelly-roll pan; bake at 250° for 15 minutes. Arrange rolls in a 13 x 9-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle cranberries evenly over rolls; top with apple mixture. Combine apple juice and the next 5 ingredients (through eggs) in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk. Pour egg mixture over roll mixture; sprinkle with remaining 2 tablespoons sugar.
    Cover and refrigerate overnight.

    Preheat oven to 350°.
    Uncover dish, and sprinkle with almonds. Bake at 350° for 55 minutes or until golden.

    No... but I'm sure I would love it! I love everything that Paula makes. I applied a few months back for some show where you ask a question and one of the network chefs answers it on the air. That one got canceled and they re-did the show to what just started recently called "Dear Food Network". Anyways, I've been talking this week to a Food Network producer that might wanna use me for one of the segments this spring with either Paula or Giada. I'm stoked! :-)
