I think every weekend needs to start with a big, special breakfast like this! Cinnamon French Toast Bake is simple to assemble (no need to put it together the night before!). Sweetened only with maple syrup, it’s a breakfast choice that is a little bit healthier, too.
Nothing says comfort food better than a breakfast casserole. Cubes of french bread, eggs, milk, maple syrup and cinnamon all combine into a dish that you will be excited to wake up to. Not gonna lie, I had this casserole for lunch, too!
