Eggnog French Toast Casserole is an easy brunch perfect for Christmas morning! With 3 ingredients and a decadent eggnog glaze, it’ll be your new favorite tradition!
This time of year is always about traditions for me. I think that is what makes Christmas so special. Whether it’s baking with the family, watching holiday movies, looking at Christmas lights in the neighborhood or going caroling, traditions make the Christmas season magical.
One of my favorite traditions each year during the Christmas season is to make Eggnog French Toast. I make it at least a few times throughout the season and always on Christmas Tree Day.
I first got the idea to use refrigerated cinnamon rolls in this recipe after my friend Cathy shared this recipe for her Cinnamon Roll French Toast Casserole. I’ve made that a couple times for other family events and it is always a hit. And now we’ve got this Christmas twist that my boys cannot get enough of.
Just three! That is what makes this so great for busy holiday mornings!
REFRIGERATED CINNAMON ROLLS: I prefer Pillsbury Grands! Cinnamon Rolls.
EGGNOG: Use your favorite brand. I use Darigold.
STEP #1: Butter a small baking dish. Cut each cinnamon roll into 6 pieces. Scatter pieces into the prepared baking dish.
STEP #2: Whisk together eggs and egg nog. Pour mixture over the top of the cinnamon rolls.
STEP #3: Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 – 40 minutes or until the cinnamon rolls are cooked through and browned.
STEP #4: Combine cinnamon roll icing and a couple tablespoons of eggnog together. Drizzle over the top.
I think that this Eggnog French Toast Casserole is perfectly sweet enough on its own. Especially with the drizzle of eggnog glaze over the top.
That being said, my guys always like to channel their inner Buddy the Elf and drizzle a little maple syrup on the top too. Whichever you choice, I know this Eggnog French Toast Casserole is going to be a favorite for everyone!
Yes! I have made this for just the four of us by using 1 package of cinnamon rolls, 3 eggs, 1/3 cup eggnog. Then to make the drizzle combine the frosting with 1 tablespoon eggnog.

You can bake the casserole in the evening and then reheat in the am! I would hold off on drizzling the icing over the top though, do that right before serving. :)
