Cinnamon Roll French Toast Casserole Recipe - Crunchy Creamy Sweet (1)


Cinnamon roll lovers, this one is for you! I have a fun twist on two classic weekend breakfast dishes that are combined into one casserole. Cinnamon rolls meet French toast for a mouth-watering, sweet and irresistible combination. I love my Cinnamon Roll Coffee Creamer when I don't feel like mixing up the yeast dough and making a batch of my Easy Cinnamon Rolls. This casserole let's me use the convenience of ready cinnamon rolls in a tube, stir it with a few ingredients and bake into one delicious weekend breakfast.

    Did you make this recipe? Let me know!

  1. Lisa says

    Is this possible with just one tube of cinnamon rolls? To make a small batch.


  2. Renee Walker says

    Do I need to refrigerate if we don't eat it all right away?


  3. Angie Pate says

    It was good, but we had egg pieces in it? What did I do wrong?


    • Anna Seekins says

      Did to mix it up more!!!


  4. Lawanda says

    can I make this ahead and freeze it? if so do I bake it any before freezing it?


  5. Jill Palacios says

    I want to make sure that you bake this uncovered?


    • Anna@CrunchyCreamySweet says

      Hi Jill! Yes, I baked it uncovered. Every oven is different so if you notice that your bread chunks are browning too fast, you can cover the dish with aluminum foil. I hope this helps!


      • Jill says

        Thank you! Baking this in the morning for 45 people at a baby shower. Can’t wait to taste it!

      • Anna@CrunchyCreamySweet says

        Yay! I hope you love it and it's a hit at the baby shower!

  6. Eileen Riccione says

    Can you make this the night before and pop it in the. oven in the morning


    • Anna@CrunchyCreamySweet says

      Hi Eileen! Yep, you can prep it the night before and bake the next day. Let me know how you like it!

    Are you using the Grands size cinnamon rolls or the regular size? I am considering topping this dish with pre-cooked turkey sausage crumbles - what do you think?


    • Anna@CrunchyCreamySweet says

      Hi Cheri! I used regular size rolls. If you like the idea of turkey sausage with sweet rolls, I say go for it!


  8. Micaela says

    How long does it go in the oven and at what temp? Also what are the measurements of the ingredients?


    • Anna@CrunchyCreamySweet says

      Hi Micaela! Everything is in the recipe box.


  9. Judy says

    Should I double this recipe for a 13 x 9 pan?


    • Anna@CrunchyCreamySweet says

      Hi Judy! For the 13x9 pan you need 1.5 of the amounts. So: 3 tubes of cinnamon rolls, 3 eggs, 3/4 cup of milk, 1.5 teaspoons of vanilla. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes. I hope this helps! Let me know!


    • Veronica says

      So this might be a silly question but does this need syrup or is the icing enough of a sweetener?


      • Natalie says

        I seriously have thought the same thing.... But ive tweeked the recipe a little i put a little syrup in with my egg and vanilla mixture, just to get the maple under tones, then top with the icing, ieven sneak a little xtra syrup drizzle on top before i bake wuth this sinfully sweet breakfast you can go wrong, just think cinnamon rolls and french toast there the two basic breakfast staples .... If all else fails wing it the only issue ive ever came across is undercooking it and biting into a mouthfull and it still is doughy! Kinda ruins it for me at least. So just watch closely, and use foil if necessary, good luck
