Bananas Foster French Toast Casserole is a majorly mouthwatering breakfast casserole! Made with cinnamon rolls, cream, and a delicious banana topping!
Now this french toast casserole is in fact the breakfast of champions. What's not to love here? The base of the dish is diced up refrigerator cinnamon rolls soaked in vanilla and cinnamon cream. Then, the real magic happens when it comes out of the oven and is topped with irresistible bananas foster sauce! I have several french toast dishes like my Blueberry French Toast Casserole and my Ham & Cheese Tater Tot Breakfast Casserole, but this one has easily moved into first place. You'll love that it takes about 5-10 minutes to put the base together, then the sauce comes together while it bakes. So easy!
How To Make Bananas Foster French Toast Casserole:
- Start by preheating your oven and generously buttering a 9x13 inch baking dish.
- You'll use 2 packages that each have 8 refrigerated cinnamon rolls. Lay the rolls out on a cutting board and slice each into 6 pieces, then lay them evenly in your baking dish.
- In a large bowl whisk together your eggs, cream, flour, cinnamon, and vanilla extract. Pour evenly over the casserole and bake as directed in the recipe card below.
How To Make The Bananas Foster Sauce:
Typically, bananas foster sauce has rum, and you can add some in if you'd like. I chose to leave it out of this dish to keep it as family friendly as possible. Be sure to read my notes in the recipe card if you'd like to ad rum!
- Melt your butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat.
- Whisk in the brown sugar, cinnamon, vanilla, and salt.
- Bring the mixture to a bubble and whisk constantly for 2 minutes.
- Stir in the sliced bananas and pecans.
- Pour the sauce immediately over the casserole when it comes out of the oven.
This one is obviously a splurge, so you might as well as enjoy it with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream too!
