This Cinnamon Streusel French Toast Casserole is an easy make-ahead breakfast recipe that is sure to please your family.

When it comes to making breakfast I prefer easy recipes that don’t require much fuss.  And, a recipe gets extra points in my book if it can be made the night before.

This Cinnamon Streusel French Toast Casserole is the perfect combination of easy and make ahead.  It’s perfect for lazy weekend mornings or a family brunch.

This recipe actually works best when you make it the night before you plan to serve it.  I assemble the french toast casserole in the baking dish and I prepare the cinnamon streusel topping in a separate bowl and stash both containers in the fridge until I’m ready to bake it.

Then all you have to do in the morning is spread the streusel topping evenly over the french toast and pop the whole thing in the oven.  The french toast is soft and tender and the streusel topping is crunchy and sweet — bliss!

It really is the perfect balance of flavor and texture.  And, my family cannot get enough of this recipe!

And, if you have any leftovers, they are fantastic the next day.  Just place an individual portion on a microwave-safe dish and cover it with a damp paper towel.  Microwave on high for 1 minute or until heated through.

  2. hi Christina, I’m a huge fan of your recipes. I have a few questions about your Cinnamon Streusel French Toast. Do I need to refrigerate overnight or can I make it without waiting? I have an impatient teenage boy that wants to try it now. Also, is there something I can use to substitute the pumpkin pie spice? Thank you and my family cannot wait to try this
