I have been making this Pumpkin Pie Breakfast Casserole for 3 years now.
Every Autumn I whip it up and share it with family and friends.
And yet, here we are three years later and it’s just finally going up on the website!
Truth be told, I’m not a huge pumpkin fan.
All the spices in Pumpkin Pie are a bit overwhelming to me and so I heavily depend upon all of my friends and family to provide feedback.
For three years now, this Pumpkin Pie Breakfast Casserole has come back with positive reviews.
The pumpkin aspect is not overwhelming, which I love.
I especially love who easy this recipe is to whip together!
There is nothing complicated about this casserole and because it’s so straight forward, it’s pretty difficult to mess up.
When Autumn rolls around you will not find me falling all over myself for Pumpkin flavored everything.
Instead, you’ll find me gushing at how beautiful the landscape is with the various shades of Autumn all around me.
You’ll find me wearing scarves, cute coats and my flip flops as I run my errands.
Flip Flops are one of my most valuable possessions I own.
I wear flip flops as long as I can possibly get away with them and ONLY switch them out where there is enough snow on the ground for my toes to get covered when walking.
Then, and only then, will I switch them out for boots.
However if by some magical stroke of luck there is a warm snap, with less than an inch of snow or slush on the ground, my flip flops come back out.
You’ll also see me sipping hot chocolate, jumping on crunchy leaves and cuddled in a warm cozy blanket with a child on my lap.
Autumn is my favorite season and it has nothing to do with pumpkin flavored foods.
Despite my neutrality to pumpkin flavored items, I know that everyone else loves it.
And so every year I do my best to come up with one or two pumpkin recipes that I thought were pretty good, and everyone else thought was great.
This easy Pumpkin Pie Breakfast Casserole isn’t just easy to whip up, it’s also a great make ahead casserole.
Feel free to whip this up the night before, tuck it away in your fridge overnight and then bake it the next day.
I am not a morning person and so anything I can do the night before to make my morning easier, is a win in my book!
This Pumpkin Pie Breakfast Casserole starts off with two rolls of refrigerator cinnamon rolls.
Then I whip up my Pumpkin Pie French Toast batter and pour that on top.
Bake it all together and just before serving, drizzle the icing that came with the cinnamon rolls over the entire casserole.
Don’t forget to be generous with the icing as no one likes a scrooge.
Seriously, how easy is that?
It’s easy, it’s not expensive and it will feed a crowd.
This Pumpkin Pie Breakfast Casserole is a great Breakfast, Brunch or party casserole.
Baby showers, Bridal showers and Birthday brunches are all ideal locations to serve this casserole.
And of course, we can’t forget your very own Sunday Brunch too!
