A new version of French toast casserole. I had some left over cinnamon rolls that had become stale and still wanted to use them so I came up with this recipe and it was a huge hit at my Sunday brunch.

  • Slice 1 banana and layer on bottom of a 9x13-inch baking dish; top with brown sugar. Layer cinnamon roll squares on top of banana. Pour egg mixture over cinnamon rolls; press cinnamon rolls with a spatula to allow egg mixture to fully coat. Cover with aluminum foil and refrigerate until egg mixture is absorbed, 1 hour to overnight.

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  • Bake in preheated oven until firm, about 50 minutes. Remove aluminum foil and bake until golden brown, about 10 minutes more. Remove from oven and let stand for 10 minutes. Slice remaining banana and place on top to serve.

This was fantastic! The flavors played so well together. Mine wasn't overly sweet but the cinnamon rolls I used had a very small amount of glaze on them. Such a fun way to use up left over cinnamon rolls. A vanilla sauce would set this over the top as a fabulous dessert. Read More

Followed every step of the recipe. It sounded delicious but was not good. I won't make this again. There were only a few recipes for banana casserole so that should have been a red flag. Read More

Very good. I used cinnamon rolls from the day old rack at the grocery store. Since they were not iced I added extra sugar based on some reviews and added pecans. With the added sugar I didn t feel it needed a vanilla sauce or any topping. As usual; better the next day. Read More
