I worked with Sara Lee® Bread to bring you this family-favorite breakfast recipe.
Cinnamon Roll French Toast Bake is a simple to make breakfast recipe. Just prepare the night before & refrigerate. Bake when you are ready for breakfast the next morning. Easy & delicious.
I sure love easy recipes, especially on the weekend. Anything that can give me more hours with the family instead of cleaning or cooking is a plus in my book. As much as we love making a big weekend breakfast, it’s so much work. So we created this Cinnamon Roll French Toast Bake that preps in a couple minutes & chills overnight. Then we just bake in the morning while we have our coffee. It’s fantastic.

Honestly, there is a lot that goes into making a full french toast breakfast or even making cinnamon rolls over the weekend. All I want to do is drink my coffee, catch some news & spend time with my family before we get on to the hustle of the weekend.
If we decide to make a meal it can take all morning before we have done the cooking, eating & cleaning up. So anything that streamlines the process is something I love. I’m telling you, my friends, overnight french toast is AWESOME for quick & delicious mornings.
We all know that the basis for a good french toast is the bread, right? You HAVE TO have some amazing bread when making a recipe like this. So I started this recipe with this Sara Lee® Artesano™ Bread. You just have to start with top quality bread.
I knew that with no high fructose corn syrup & no artificial flavors or colors, this Artesano Bread was the perfect, thick-sliced artisan-style bread to make this breakfast the best EVER. It’s also available in a Golden Wheat version, which has a touch of honey, olive oil & sea salt.
Now you can pass on the frosting if you prefer your favorite syrup. But I thought that combining all the cinnamon & some delicious cinnamon roll icing on top would be a good combo when craving cinnamon rolls & french toast.
