Cinnamon Raisin French Toast Casserole

I love breakfast but I never wake early enough to actually make and enjoy it! So I am a fan of anything that speeds up the process of a nice breakfast. Some of my favorites  are french toast, pancakes, waffles….the list is neverending!

I think this recipe is nice to keep in your recipe box, especially for the special occasion breakfasts, like Valentine’s Day!! It is such an easy recipe and you prep it the night before, let it refrigerate overnight. Wake in the morning and you pop it in the oven, get ready for the day and breakfast will be ready!

Serve this fresh and hot out of the oven. It isn’t super sweet and also has a slight crunch from the crust.  You could pair this with some sausages and a fruit bowl. Start your day off right with this yummy casserole!
