Pumpkin French Toast Casserole ~ Pumpkin Cheesecake stuffed into a French Toast Casserole! Easy breakfast for the weekends!
Here’s the deal. I adore breakfast on weekends. I love that I’m able to sleep until my child wakes me up usually, go make a big pot of coffee, whip up some breakfast and enjoy some down time around the table with my little family. There’s no hustling, bustling and getting out the door. It’s sitting there relaxing, talking and enjoy the antics of Miss K. Trust me, there is always plenty of those for you that have not met my child. She does not lack on personality!
The one thing I hate on Saturday mornings is having to slave in the kitchen to get a breakfast on the table that everyone will enjoy. I mean, honestly it’s my weekend I’m not about to do that if I don’t have too! That’s why I big puffy heart overnight breakfasts link this recipe for Overnight French Toast. I just whip up the breakfast the night before, wake up in the morning, stumble into the kitchen and stick it in the oven. What’s not to love about that?
Plus it’s holiday season soon, which means you are going to have overnight guests more than likely. You need something to impress them! This is your meal ticket right here. Trust me on this one. It’s full of sweet KING’S HAWAIIAN® Dinner Rolls that are stuffed with a pumpkin cheesecake filling then topped with crumb topping and finally drizzled with glaze.
Drooling yet? I thought so.
