Cinnamon French Toast Bake Recipe


November 28  is National French Toast Day so I wanted to find a recipe that celebrated this food holiday but not with a traditional french toast recipe. This year I've picked cinnamon french toast bake. Pillsbury says "This easy breakfast bake features refrigerated cinnamon rolls that make quick work of favorite French toast flavors." Soundsss good to me!

I think you should keep this recipe in mind for an Easter breakfast, brunch or lunch. The ingredients (like cinnamon) make you think of Christmas I know but truth be told- this recipe is made a lot for seasonal meals in Spring, like Easter. In fact I've seen it served with chocolate Easter Eggs on top.

Perfect as a Breakfast Dessert: 
This recipe is not just for a holiday. Nooo! It's perfect any day of the year. The maple syrup in it makes you think of breakfast and what husband wouldn't want this with a cup of coffee as a breakfast dessert. Yep I said it. A savory Saturday breakfast followed by a breakfast dessert is beginning to be the norm. It's a casual dish that's perfect for the family. wink~
