Cinnamon Roll French Toast

This combination of two favorite breakfasts – Cinnamon Rolls and French Toast – will have your family raving. To make it, brioche bread is covered in Challenge Butter and sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar. The bread is then rolled, placed into a casserole dish, and covered with a decadent custard. A quick and easy cream cheese glaze is drizzled on the top for that last touch.

Your family and friends will be happy campers waking up to the aroma of this special dish.
