This Maple French Toast Casserole is one of our favorites! This would be a wonderful addition to any holiday morning. It’s made with croissants and you can throw this one together in 15 minutes. The flavor is wonderful and we love it topped with powdered sugar and maple syrup. You could easily use walnuts or leave the nuts out all together. The cinnamon and nutmeg gives this dish a great Christmas feel!
Maple Pecan French Toast Casserole Ingredients Needed:
Heavy Whipping Cream
Many recipes call for milk but I really think the heavy whipping cream gave this such a great flavor. Plus it really soaked into the croissants really well. I felt like it made this recipe better but if you don’t have it, you can use milk. You could also leave the nutmeg out if you are not a fan but I really felt like it went great with the maple syrup and the pecans.
We love it topped with the powdered sugar and it’s good with or without the maple syrup. I think honey and fruit would be a great addition too. This recipe is super versatile and we love making it during the holidays.

- If you can't find the large croissants I would use 8-10 of the smaller ones.
