Christmas Morning Breakfast: Cinnamon Roll French Toast Breakfast Casserole

IMG_20181220_092934832Feeding the kids on Christmas morning has always been a challenge.  Simply put, they don’t want to eat; they want to unwrap presents and play with toys. So, several years ago, I began playing around with various “breakfast casseroles” that I could put together the night before, pop in the oven before the kids woke up, and have breakfast ready immediately on Christmas morning.

Over the years, I’ve made a variety of breakfast casseroles–Denver Omelet casseroles, Biscuits & Gravy casseroles, Spanish Fritatta casseroles, and even Bread Pudding-style casseroles.  This year’s breakfast casserole will surely be a hit-Cinnamon Roll French Toast Casserole.
