Overnight Cinnamon Roll French Toast

Overnight cinnamon roll casserole

If you’ve been following along with me for a while, then you know cooking breakfasts is not my thing.

For many reasons…. Mainly because I move at a snails pace in the morning. Which means zero energy for big elaborate meals first thing in the morning. That’s why overnight breakfast are right up my ally! Prep the night before, pop it in the oven when you wake up and BOOM!! You’re the best breakfast maker ever!

Overnight cinnamon roll casserole
This recipe uses store bought cinnamon roll dough (I used pillsbury, but you can use the brand of your choice. You can also top your casserole with berries ,chocolate chips, sliced almonds or walnuts right before you pop it in the oven for a little something extra.

  • 1 or 2 packages of refrigerated cinnamon roll dough (12 in total) cut  into quarters
  • 4 Eggs
  • 1 Cup of milk
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  1. Prep a medium casserole dish with cooking spray.
  2. Place your cut cinnamon rolls into your dish, spreading them out evenly.
  3.  In a medium bowl, mix together your milk, eggs, vanilla, sugar and cinnamon. Pour over your cinnamon roll pieces.
  4. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate over night. (at least 7 hours)
  5. Preheat your oven the 375.
  6. Remove plastic wrap and cook for 35 minutes. Or until the cinnamon rolls are golden brown.
  7. Drizzle with cream cheese icing that comes with the rolls! Serve warm.

A breakfast favorite, turned into a super easy, super delicious casserole!

It’s quickly turned into a favorite around here, and a breakfast that I actually don’t mind making!
