Cinnamon Roll French Toast Casserole

I really enjoy making breakfast on the weekends for my guys but sometimes I run out of ideas for things to make.  You know how it is.  You want to make something tasty and hearty but you’ve made the same few things over and over for months on end and then {YIPPEE} you find an awesome new recipe that you give a try and it turns out even better than you expected.  That’s what happened this weekend.  I bought a big box of Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls at Sam’s Club and found this recipe on the back ~ I am so glad I made it.   I changed the recipe up just slightly from the original omitting nuts and some additional syrup and powdered sugar.

    Just wondering if anyone has tried this as an overnight casserole that you refrigerate overnight and bake in the morning, or would the bread get too soggy? Thanks!

      Hi Renee,

      I haven’t tried it as an overnight casserole ~ I think it probably would get soggy but, you may want to try this in a crock pot ~ I haven’t tried that method but on low that might work. If I do try it, I will let you know.

      Thanks so much for stopping by.
