Easy Cinnamon Roll French Toast Casserole Recipe
If you like cinnamon rolls then you will LOVE this Cinnamon Roll French Toast Casserole. Think of it has taking the cinnamon roll to a whole new level. This sticky, sweet deliciousness really shouldn’t be called a breakfast recipe. It’s more like a treat, dessert but hey it’s also still kind of a French Toast so when I have a hankering for it I can claim it’s breakfast.
Even better yet (if that’s possible) this Cinnamon Roll French Toast Casserole is so easy to make. You can also make it ahead of time and warm it up a bit in the microwave when ready to serve. It’s perfect any time of the year but I love the idea of making it a day or two before Christmas or New Year’s day so it’s ready to go on those mornings.We all know how it can either be a crazy, busy Christmas morning, possibly up early or maybe for New Year’s Day where everyone wants to sleep in (maybe recover) and have a lazy day. This Cinnamon Roll French Toast Casserole is great for all of those times. After all who can resist the cinnamon-ny smell of such scrumptiousness?
I’m practically considered a Goddess when I make this Cinnamon Roll French Toast Casserole. Somehow though that Goddess status fades quickly when it comes time to doing the dishes after baking this yumminess.
I think I will withhold the Cinnamon Roll French Toast Casserole servings until after my family does the dishes from now on. How much do you want to bet the dishes will get done and quickly if I do that? 😉
Before the icing is slathered on.

Yes you can freeze it but if using vacuum seal bags choose a gentle setting. I would recommend warming it up in an oven though in case it’s a bit soggy after defrosting it. I like it a bit toasted on top anyways.
