1tart apple like a Granny Smith peeled and chopped into ¼-1/2 inch pieces
Ina pie dish whisk together
¼cuphalf and half
2TBSsour cream or greek yogurt
a pinch of salt
about four cups leftover bread cut into one inch pieces- I used focaccia.
For the casserole- preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Then toss all the ingredients together and bake in a butter dish or pan for about 20-25 minutes until egg is set and edges and top are brown.
For the waffles with apple toss ¼ of the bread in the egg mixture then transfer to a separate bowl. Add ¼ of the chopped apples along with a few teaspoons of the accompanying sauce. “Pour” onto a preheated well seasoned waffle iron, spreading out the mixture if necessary. and bake as you would a regular waffle- until golden brown. About 5 minutes. Beware of apple bits that stick to the iron.
For the waffles without the apples inside toss ¼ of the bread in the egg mixture and spread onto the preheated waffle iron. Top with apple mixture when serving.
Serve any version warm with optional butter and real maple syrup.
