Cinnamon French Toast Bubble Up

Cinnamon French Toast Bubble Up is a delightful and easy breakfast dish that combines the flavors of cinnamon French toast with a “bubble up” casserole. This typically means that pieces of bread or dough are mixed with a custard mixture and other ingredients, then baked until golden and bubbly. It’s a great recipe for brunches, holidays, or when you want something a little special without too much fuss. Here’s a simple way to make it:

Ingredients:

  • 1 can (16.3 oz) refrigerated flaky biscuits
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream (or use all milk for a lighter version)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg (optional)
  • Pinch of salt
  • Butter for greasing the pan
  • Maple syrup, for serving
  • Powdered sugar, for dusting (optional)

Instructions:

  1. Preheat Oven and Prep Pan:
    • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
    • Grease a 9×13-inch baking dish with butter.
  2. Prepare the Biscuits:
    • Open the can of refrigerated biscuits and cut each biscuit into quarters.
  3. Make Custard Mixture:
    • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, heavy cream, granulated sugar, vanilla extract, cinnamon, nutmeg, and a pinch of salt.
  4. Assemble the Bubble Up:
    • Toss the biscuit pieces in the egg mixture until they are well coated.
    • Pour the biscuit and egg mixture into the greased baking dish, spreading the pieces out evenly.
    • Let it sit for a few minutes to allow the biscuits to soak up some of the custard.
  5. Bake:
    • Place the baking dish in the preheated oven and bake for 25-35 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the center is set.
  6. Finish and Serve:
    • Remove the dish from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes.
    • If desired, dust with powdered sugar and serve with maple syrup on the side.
  7. Optional Add-ins:
    • For an extra treat, you can sprinkle the top with additional cinnamon, or add a handful of raisins, chocolate chips, or nuts to the biscuit mixture before baking.

Cinnamon French Toast Bubble Up can be a sweet and indulgent start to the day or a fun breakfast-for-dinner option. It’s a versatile dish that can be easily customized with your favorite French toast toppings and add-ins. Enjoy!
