Stuffed Cinnamon Roll French Toast Casserole





Yield 8-10 Serving

Think homemade cinnamon rolls without all the work. Delicious French toast casserole stuffed with sweet cream cheese topped with a nutty, crunch streusel. 



  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 11x13 baking dish with non-stick spray or lightly coat with butter.
  2. Prepare Custard Mixture: In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, and sugar.
  3. Prepare Cream Cheese Filling: In a separate bowl, stir together the softened cream cheese, maple syrup, and brown sugar.
  4. Layer 1/2 the bread pieces in the prepared baking dish. Pour 1 C of the the well- mixed egg mixture over the bread pieces.
  5. With a cookie scoop or spoon, drop dollops of the softened cream cheese mixture all over the bread pieces.
  6. Repeat steps 4 + 5.
  7. Prepare Crunchy Topping: In a small bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, salt, chopped pecans and bubbled butter. Use a food processor, pastry cutter, 2 knives, or your hands to combine the mixture till crumbly. The mixture should resemble pebbles.
  8. Sprinkle the crunchy topping over the entire dish.
  9. Bake for 35- 40 minutes or till the top is golden brown*! The cook time depends on your baking dish**.
  10. Remove from oven and let casserole cool for at least 5 minutes. Serve as is, or with a drizzle of maple syrup.


*If your casserole begins to brown to quickly, gently cover with foil and continue to bake.

**If you used a deep baking dish, the casserole might need a little longer in the oven.
