In a large bowl, break your bread into small pieces- about 1 inch cubes. If your bread is fresh you can cut it and stick it in the oven for a few minutes to toast up. Set it aside while you prepare the rest.

Chop the onion, mincing the garlic, and peeling and chopping the apples.

Heat a skillet to medium and add the butter. Once it’s melted add the onions, garlic, apples, cinnamon and salt/pepper to taste.

Saute them until the onions are translucent and the apples are softening.
