Let's Make It
Preheat the oven to 350ºF.
In a large frying pan, heat the butter on medium until it starts to sizzle. Add the apples, pecans, brown sugar, and cinnamon and combine. Cook the apples until they are soft, approximately 10 minutes. Remove from the stove and set to the side.
In a large bowl, whisk the eggs and milk. Add the cubed bread to the egg mixture and combine until all of the bread is coated. Pour the bread into a nine-inch square baking pan. Add the apple mixture and combine.
Bake in the oven for 60 minutes. Once cooked, remove and cut into 9 squares.
While the casserole is cooking, in a medium bowl, beat the cream cheese and powdered sugar until smooth with either a hand mixer or stand mixer. Add the vanilla, and then slowly drizzle in the milk. Mix until a thick pourable consistency similar to sour cream. Spoon the icing onto the warm French toast casserole.
The casserole can be stored in the fridge for 2 - 3 days, and heated in the microwave for 40 seconds to warm. Store the cream cheese icing in a separate container.
For easy cleanup, line baking pan with foil using this easy method. Turn pan upside down and fit a piece of foil over top of pan, smoothing corners as needed. Remove foil. When you turn the pan over, the foil fits perfectly inside the pan.
