Just when you thought that life can not get any sweeter this recipe comes along. Fall mornings in this household just got a joust of sweetness from my delicious Glazed Donut French Toast Casserole.
Do you think the kids complained? Not at all, not one bit. All was quiet at the table this morning. Can I just say, I was in my glory. Not one peep. Only if we can start our mornings like this every day. Right?
Needless to say, those brisk Fall mornings will be here before we know it. You can almost feel the change of the season approaching now so you know that it’s only a matter of time before the crisp air moves in.
That is why this is the perfect recipe to make during Fall. Not only because it’s super easy to make, but it tastes incredible with apples. -And of course, if you need some oomph, top this casserole off with granola crumbles and maple syrup. Can you say, mouthwatering?
There are two different ways in preparing my Glazed Donut French Toast Casserole. First, if you can snag a box of day old glazed donuts, do it and do it now. In all honesty, I rarely pick up day old donuts from the bakery or grocery store but trust me, don’t walk by that aisle too fast. Many of the times, they reduce the price and the must sell date still have days left. So if you can score a box before making this recipe then you’re awesome!
Like I’ve said there are two ways for you to make this breakfast casserole. If you’re short on time, you can refrigerate your mixture for an hour before baking or keep it in the fridge overnight (I highly recommend it).
I kept my dish in overnight to make sure that all of the ingredients had plenty of time to blend in together. -And doing so, actually saved me time in the morning. All I needed to do was preheat the oven then bake the Glazed Donut French Toast Casserole for 40 minutes. By that time, my kids were up and ready for this yummy breakfast.
Do you know what? This casserole is by far the best I’ve tasted in a long time. The glazed donuts have a golden brown crisp that blends in so well with the cinnamon from the french toast mixture. It’s a Fall delight!
Do you know what else is a delight? Sharing. Even although this recipe is perfect to serve at breakfast, who is to say that you couldn’t serve this for brunch or dinner. Heck, this would be a pretty awesome dessert if you added a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream on top.
So tell me, what are your favorite breakfast foods to make during the Fall?
