Cinnamon French Toast Casserole combines two breakfast favorites and makes one delicious, homemade breakfast dish.
Do you love casseroles? How about scrumptious breakfast foods? If so…this casserole is just what you need to try! Fluffy cinnamon roll pieces combined with a cinnamon vanilla mixture that will make your tastebuds rejoice!
Growing up, my mom had several traditions throughout the year of foods she would make for each Holiday. Things from Thanksgiving Jell-O, Christmas Layered Jell-O, Christmas goodie trays, and more!
Each Christmas morning, she would wake up and make Breakfast Pizza and a few packages of Orange Rolls. Since we didn’t have Orange Rolls any other time of the year, we always looked forward to that treat!
Fast forward to me having a family of my own, I now continue lots of the same traditions, but have also added a few of my own and changed some up!
Since my kids LOVE cinnamon rolls, but aren’t huge fans of the orange rolls I grew up enjoying, I have since added this Cinnamon French Toast Casserole into our Holiday rotation to enjoy Christmas morning!
This casserole isn’t overly sweet as I tend to omit the Maple Syrup from the last step, but if you like things a bit sweeter, definitely keep that ingredient included!
Not only is this tasty straight from the oven, but it reheats perfectly!
Don’t think you can only make this at Christmas either, this is great to prepare when guests come over, weekend breakfasts, evening treats, and more!
Also, if you’re not a fan of Pecans, feel free to omit from this!

If you want to save on time, feel free to prepare this ahead of when you need it and simply cover and place in the refrigerator until ready to bake. Of course, once chilled, you will want to add a few minutes to the overall cook time, but other than that, all works perfectly!
