Spring is a popular time for brunches, and this Cinnamon Roll French Toast Casserole is just the thing to make for one. The recipe is easy, but stands out, since it is not your typical french toast or even french toast casserole. It may also serve as a sweet and tricky way to get kids to eat their eggs.
