French Toast Casserole


French Toast Casserole

made with sweet KING’S HAWAIIAN ®  rolls

perfect for a holiday family brunch

I am always looking for make ahead meal ideas, even more so during the busy holiday season.

And, I LOVE when I find a recipe that uses items I always have at home.  Running out to the store for one or two things….a  – takes TOO much time, and b – who buys only what they went for. Not me.

Casseroles are perfect, and not just for dinner.

This french toast casserole is so easy to put together, and using KING’S HAWAIIAN ®  diner rolls makes it even better.  It can be put together ahead of time {I usually let it sit overnight} making breakfast or brunch a snap,  and the leftovers reheat very well.

  • 1 package of KING’S HAWAIIAN ® dinner rolls
  • 2 cups of whole milk
  • 6 eggs
  • 1/3 cup of sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • For the topping:
  • 1/4 cup of brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp butter


  • Generously butter a baking dish
  • cube dinner rolls and place in baking dish
  • whisk together the milk and eggs
  • stir in the vanilla salt and spices
  • pour the egg mixture over the bread
  • {allow to sit for at least 30 minutes, or can be covered and refrigerated overnight}
  • pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees
  • cut the butter into the brown sugar to make a crumble
  • sprinkle on top of casserole
  • bake for 40 - 45 minutes

I like to serve the casserole with syrup and fresh fruit, but powdered sugar or honey and butter  would be delicious too!


KING’S HAWAIIAN ®  dinner rolls are one of the few things I know my fussy one will eat, so we always have them in the fridge and freezer. They are delicious as is, but can be used in SO many ways.
