During the holidays, I love to treat my family to delicious breakfast and brunch dishes.  I always love doing overnight French toast.  It’s super-simple, as the prep work is typically done the night before.  Once you wake up in the morning, you simply transfer your dish from the refrigerator to the oven, and in a matter of moments, you and your family will be enjoying the most amazing, hot breakfast!

A while back, I decided that I wanted to try an overnight French Toast with frozen cinnamon roll dough.  You can find frozen cinnamon rolls at most grocery stores, in the freezer section (I use Rhodes).  The results were pretty amazing – you end up with the sweet, delicious flavors of cinnamon rolls, combined with the fluffy textures of French Toast!

This French toast bake is super-simple to throw together the night before.  Simply take out your frozen cinnamon rolls from the freezer, and using kitchen shears, cut the rolls into quarters.  Add the quartered cinnamon roll pieces to a medium casserole dish that has been sprayed with non-stick spray, and then pour your egg mixture over the top. Then cover the casserole dish with plastic wrap, and refrigerate overnight.

The dough will begin to thaw and raise while in the fridge.  When you wake up in the morning, you can then transfer the dish to your preheated oven.  These will continue to rise in the oven and bake up beautifully!

  • 1 c. milk
  • 3 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1½ tsp. vanilla
  • ½ tsp. cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp. nutmeg

    The recipe says frozen cinnamon rolls.. would the refrigerated in the can kind work? My husband picked up the wrong ones.

  10. 10

    I am also wondering about using refrigerated cinnamon rolls. I have those on hand!

  11. 12

    I also bought the refrigerated kind. Is that ok?

    • 13

      Did you end up trying the refrigerated rolls? I was hoping someone would post an answer to that question! 😊

  12. 14

    I want to double the recipe. How long should I cook it for?

  13. 15

    Haha.. Yet another person who bought the refrigerated rolls and not the frozen.. I guess we will see how it comes out!

  14. 17

    For those of you wondering if the refrigerated cinnamon rolls would cook correctly, they worked just fine! This recipe is definitely a keeper! I doubled the cinnamon rolls, kept the liquid measurements the same, added blueberries and my own cream cheese frosting. It was delicious and filling.

  15. 21

    Will this work if the cinnamon rolls are already baked?

    Tiffany Moschner :

    Does it matter if I cover it in Wax Paper!? Can I use foil? I hate wax paper so I never keep it on hand!

  17. 25

    I’m wondering if I can freeze this. If so, should I freeze it before baking? After baking? If before, how long would it need to thaw for the rolls to rise enough?

    Help!

    I’m hoping to bring this along to a family trip and it’s easier to make ahead and freeze.

  18. 27

    Is there a maximum time that these can be pre-made? Can I prepare and combine everything 2-3 days ahead of time or will that mess up the cinnamon rolls? Any help would be great!

    I can only find the Rhodes frozen microwave cinnamon rolls do you know if those will work?

  20. 34

    Great recipe! A friend recommended this and it sounded delicious so I decided to make it for Christmas morning and my family absolutely loved it! Thank you!

  21. 36

    Delicious! Super easy and they turned out beautiful. I baked mine in a 9 by 13 pan for 35 minutes. I was scared about the tops getting burnt but I probably should of kept them in there a little longer. The bottom of cinnamon rolls didn’t cook all the way through. More practice for next year!

  22. 39

    Could this be done in a crockpot? If so..how long would you cook it for in morning? Would love to take this camping!
