Cinnamon Raisin Breakfast Casserole

I’ve been experimenting with different types of overnight breakfast casseroles. I made a decadent Caramel Pecan Breakfast Casserole where a sweet tooth is a must. It got the wheels turning as I thought about what else would taste good for breakfast. Then it hit me. I saw raisin bread on sale in the flyer and knew what my next recipe would be. I whipped up this Cinnamon Raisin Breakfast Casserole and it couldn’t have turned out better!

The base is raisin bread which I love on it’s own slathered with butter for breakfast. Instead it’s topped with a milk and egg mixture and brown sugar and cinnamon topping. It’s sweet, yes, but so darn yummy!

I guess another name for it could be a french toast casserole. It has just a few extras in it.

This casserole did not last long! I put a little bit of maple syrup on mine, but it would be fine without too. I know I’ll be making this recipe again and SOON!

I think next I’ll have to try a savoury breakfast casserole to balance out all these sweet ones! The sweet ones are hard to resist though…
