Why We Love This Cinnamon Roll French Toast Casserole
This yummy breakfast bake is everything we love about french toast mixed with everything we love about cinnamon rolls. Then there are berries tossed in to make it even better.
Unlike most french toast casseroles, this one does not need to be assembled ahead of time. You can assemble it and then bake it right away.
However, if you want to do the work ahead of time you certainly can. Prep it the night before and refrigerate it until the morning.
All you have to do in the morning is let it sit out while the oven preheats to take the chill off. Then just add a couple of minutes to the bake time.
You can change up the fruit to use your favorites. Chopped strawberries or blackberries work well too.
You can even use frozen berries if you want. You can even leave the fruit off if you want, this recipe is really adaptable.
If you want to go all out, make some maple whipped cream to go on top. It really is the perfect combination!
Luckily this casserole reheats well, so there is no need to worry about making the full batch.
Store the leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 4 or 5 days. For longer storage, wrap individual pieces and freeze for up to 3 months.
A quick trip to the microwave is all that will stand between you and a tasty breakfast.
Can I use almond milk instead of cream?
Yes, you can use half and half or your favorite milk alternative as well. But cream will give you the richest texture.
More Great Brunch Bakes
For a sweet and savory option, try making a Monte Cristo bake. It is such a fun option that make a great breakfast or dinner.
If savory is more your style, try making a sausage and hash brown egg casserole. It is my husband’s favorite egg bake.
For a different twist on cinnamon rolls, try making old fashioned butter rolls. They are like a no-rise cinnamon roll that bakes in their own sauce.
Banana bread pudding is another tasty breakfast option. Just call it banana French toast casserole if you feel bad about eating bread pudding for breakfast.
