This recipe for Easy French Toast totally uses store-bought cinnamon roll dough and I’m 100% okay with it. Some mornings you need something delicious and don’t want to wake up at 6am.

Tips for making this Easy French Toast Bake:
It’s truly as simple as placing the premade cinnamon rolls in a baking dish and pouring your egg mixture over top. I use the icing that comes in the can of cinnamon rolls over top and sprinkle with toasted pecans once it’s done. That’s it! I told you this was an easy recipe! If you prefer a more traditional Cinnamon Roll Casserole approach, you can chop up the premade rolls into cubes before placing in the pan. Easy peasy!
This recipe was created for all the anti-morning people out there. All the people that would rather be night owls than wake up at the crack of dawn. Real cinnamon rolls can be made another day. SUPER EASY CINNAMON ROLL FRENCH TOAST BAKE can be for today.
This Easy French Toast is a great complement to recipes like Ham and Cheese Breakfast Casserole or Easy Breakfast Pizza. Every savory breakfast needs a sweet companion.
I’m also a big believer that each and every morning needs a great beverage. If it’s a fun girls brunch you can make our favorite Sherbet Mimosas or Apple Cider Mimosas, or if you’re dining with the kids you can make our Simple Smoothie. I’m REALLY craving breakfast for dinner now!
Having this great and easy Cinnamon Roll French Toast Bake as a start to your mornings is sure to make for a delicious day.
I’m just always a fan of recipes that make mornings easy and fun. This breakfast is sure to please everyone from the adults down to the kids. It’s a great holiday recipe but also perfect for any time of year. Saturday mornings are better with a delicious (SIMPLE) recipe!
