Notes:
-This is one of my favorite recipes!
-It’s perfect for brunch with muffins and an egg casserole.
-It goes great with ham, Christmas buffets, New Year’s day, Easter . . .
-It reheats well, if you have any leftovers!
-If I’m serving two smaller groups back to back...I divide the fruit and sugar mixture into two smaller casseroles. Then I mix half the applesauce and one banana with the first one baked. The next day, mix the other half of the fruit with another banana and the other half of the applesauce. I get to plan once and serve it fresh, twice.
