How to make Hawaiian rolls French toast casserole
I’ve got the full Hawaiian roll French toast bake recipe at the end of this post, but here are some tips for making it.
To make this Hawaiian bread French toast casserole, start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees F. Chop 1 12-count pack of King’s Hawaiian Original Dinner Rolls into cubes, and place them into a 9″x13″ baking dish.
In a saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. I prefer using real butter for this recipe (salted or unsalted would both work), but margarine will also work if that’s what you have on hand. Add some brown sugar to the pan and stir until the sugar has dissolved into the butter, which will take about 3 minutes.
Toss the butter and sugar mixture with the chopped rolls in the baking dish, then make sure the Hawaiian rolls French toast pieces are spread out evenly in the pan.
Next, beat milk and 6 eggs together with cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla extract.
Pour the egg mixture over the chopped rolls in the baking dish.
Bake the Hawaiian bread French toast casserole in the pre-heated oven for 45 minutes. The recipe is hands-off at this point, which makes it ideal for busy holiday mornings!
To serve the King’s Hawaiian French toast casserole, slice it into squares.
