Let the Ready Dough defrost on the countertop in a greased casserole dish covered with plastic wrap for 2-3 hours. Cut thawed dough loaf into 40 small pieces.
Place dough into a medium bowl and stir in the melted butter, coating the dough evenly. Spread dough pieces in the bottom of the casserole dish.
Using same bowl, add the diced apple and sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon. Stir them into the dough pieces in the casserole dish. Preheat oven to 350º F, if baking immediately.
As a make ahead dish, cover the casserole dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight. Otherwise, skip to step 4.
The next morning, pull the casserole dish out of the fridge. Let it sit at room temperature while the oven preheats to 350º.
Bake casserole for 40 minutes, until casserole is golden and bubbly. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving.
*You can also use half of a 25 oz. bag of Bridgford Parkerhouse Style rolls instead of the Ready-Dough. Thaw rolls on a covered, greased sheet pan on the counter for 1 hour. Cut each roll into 4 pieces, and follow directions in step 1.
