Do you love to make breakfast casseroles during the holidays? We almost always have an egg casserole along with our best ever cinnamon rolls on Christmas morning. Every now and then we switch it up and make French toast casseroles. This one uses up a little bit of eggnog that might be in your fridge.

Eggnog Breakfast Casserole Recipe

My family LOVES french toast casseroles. Some you have to make in advance, but this recipe is easily made the morning you want to serve it. That’s great for last-minute cravings for something other than cereal in the morning.

Breakfast Casserole with Croissants

This breakfast casserole is similar to the popular French toast casserole. Instead of bread, it uses croissants. We use premade croissants from the bakery and recommend them for this recipe over the refrigerated tube croissants. Bakery croissants have a better texture and will hold up to the egg and eggnog in this recipe.

How to Make Eggnog Breakfast Casserole

This recipe can easily be prepped in about 10 minutes.

  1. Slice the croissants and place them in a greased 11×7″ baking pan.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, eggnog, allspice and vanilla. Be sure the eggs are well mixed.
  3. Pour this mixture over the croissants, making sure to cover the croissants well.
  4. Tuck the cubed cream cheese into the casserole evenly.
  5. Bake at 400º F for 30 minutes covered with foil, then uncover and bake for another 10 minutes to that the top of the casserole gets golden brown.
  6. Serve with blueberries and syrup. Yum!

Can I use cinnamon rolls instead of croissants?

Yes! If you’d like you can buy refrigerated cinnamon roll dough, bake them and cut them into quarters. If you choose cinnamon rolls, use about 8-10 rolls (depending on the size) to make this casserole.Make the egg filling the same as the recipe states.
