The end-all of holiday breakfast bakes, the Tiramisu French Toast Casserole, will put you in the spirit to celebrate!

Holiday breakfasts are always something I look forward to, because they center around family and memory making.

Every year I create a casserole or breakfast bake that can be made-ahead and popped in the oven first thing in the morning. That way, I don’t miss out on the celebration.

But it can’t be any-old ordinary breakfast casserole. For Thanksgiving, Christmas, or New Years morning it has to be something truly special!

In the past I’ve had winners and, well… losers.

One year I made a gruyer and crab scramble casserole that I thought was going to be a huge hit. Lt. Dan decided after the first bite that eggs and crab did not belong together.

After that, I learned it’s best not to experiment with new flavor combinations on Christmas morning.

However, other years I’ve had massive success with breakfast bakes, like my classic french toast casserole.

French Toast Casserole encompasses all the flavors of classic french toast in one easy throw-in-the-oven dish that is made the night before.

A lovely spinoff of this Christmas morning miracle, is today’s Tiramisu French Toast Casserole.

I started with Sister Schubert Dinner Yeast Rolls because they offer a light pillowy texture and bold yeasty flavor that stand up to the other flavors in this recipe.

I cut the yeast rolls in quarters and threw them in a baking dish. Then I whisked the french toast casserole egg mixture with espresso and booze to give it an intense tiramisu essence. I also made a quick chocolate almond crumble to sprinkle over the top for texture and visual appeal.

If you want to make Tiramisu French Toast Casserole the night before… I would stop right here and put each separate component in the fridge overnight. The next morning, you simply re-whisk the egg mixture and pour it over the yeast rolls, then sprinkle on the crumble before baking.

The pop of espresso and booze, plus the layer of chocolate almond crumble, gives this french toast casserole that extra something that makes it just right to serve to guests… you might even impress your mother in law.

P.S. I served this to the entire family; there’s only a very small amount of espresso and booze in each serving.

    My favorite needle quote is one my mother had when I was growing up —
    “Come in, sit down, relax, converse.
    Our house doesn’t always look like this.
    Sometimes it’s even worse.”
