Our home has always been a fan of French Toast Casserole, the perfect brunch for the holidays. Imagine my surprise when Kent opted to try the Pillsbury Cinnamon Bun Casserole. He discovered another Facebook Video and had to test his skills. Successfully test his skills I might ass
Pillsbury Cinnamon Bun Casserole Test
Apologies if you are the Facebook wizard behind this fun recipe but I did not get an opportunity to discover the authour. I promise I will do some snooping and try to give proper credit, I did find a very similar recipe on Pillsbury so for now I will link to their video. I do like to give credit, where credit is due. Update: Kent found the recipe at Lemon Tree Dwelling so I thank her very very much.
Bottom line, totally delicious, easy to make and very decadent. Not what I would call a diet friendly brunch but sometimes one has to say who cares right? 705 calories per serving but this will make you want to stay home and never go to Cinnabon again.
Step by step pictorial
the most complicated part of this recipe is opening the Pillsbury packaging. I swear it’s the adult version of child proof caps on pills. Once the packaging is open put the icing containers to the side. You will use this later.
creating a decadent breakfast or brunch recipe for special occasions. I say special becuase this is an easy recipe but very rich so you want to reserve it for those occasions that you want to indulge.

Mouth drooling Goodness
This honestly may replace our French Toast Casserole for holiday mornings. The possibilities are endless, add pecans or maybe some apple slices. I am also thinking strawberries and sausages on the side, plus a Mimosa or two
