Overnight Apple Fritter French Toast Casserole takes the best elements of apple fritters & French toast casserole & combines them in one, delicious recipe!
I've talked about how much I love make ahead breakfasts. Making breakfast the night before just makes the morning run so much more smoothly. I've also mentioned how much I love donuts. So it was only a matter of time before I combined the two.
This Overnight Apple Fritter French Toast Casserole takes the elements of an apple fritter – the choppy dough, the cinnamon, the apple filling, and the glaze – and turns them into an easy, make-ahead breakfast or brunch.recipes featuring Lucky Leaf Pie Filling here and here. Or you find Lucky Leaf on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest.
Since they're make-ahead, overnight French toast casseroles are great for weekends and holidays. They only take a few minutes to put together the night before, and then you just pop it in the oven in the morning.
This recipe uses cinnamon bread and Lucky Leaf Fruit Filling and Topping, so there's very little prep. One of the things that I really like about Lucky Leaf is that there's a lot of fruit in the fruit filling, which means there's plenty of apple to enjoy in your apple fritter French toast.
Just take a few minutes the night before, and get a delicious breakfast or brunch the next morning!
