Can I make this Cinnamon Roll French Toast Casserole ahead of time?
Yes! It is one of the reasons I make this so often! Follow all recipe directions up to the baking. Instead, cover your casserole dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate up to 24 hours. Remove from the refrigerator half an hour before you plan to bake and then follow recipe baking instructions.

How to Store & Reheat Cinnamon Roll French Toast Bake
Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.
To reheat the entire casserole dish, I recommend 20-30 minutes in a 350-degree oven.
To reheat single pieces, I do this easily in the microwave in 30-second increments. Be careful, it goes from cool to very hot quickly!
How to Make this Easy Breakfast Bake
Preheat oven. Melt butter in the microwave and spread evenly over the bottom of your casserole dish.
Quarter the cinnamon rolls with a small knife and place into a baking dish
In a medium mixing bowl, add eggs, milk, vanilla extract, and cinnamon and whisk until completely mixed. Add to top of cinnamon roll dough.
Pour maple syrup over the mixture and bake for 35-40 minutes at 350 degrees.
Drizzle the icing that came with the cinnamon rolls over the top of the warm casserole, slice and enjoy!
