I don’t know about you but I love Sunday Brunch. When I can make a dish that is easy and ready for the entire family at the same time I call that a bonus! I hate having the kids leave the table before I can sit down. And cold food is the pits. Honestly! The perfect answer is a breakfast bake. But the kids are begging for pancakes or french toast! Enter the Apple Streusel French Toast Bake. Not just french toast, but the KING of french toast. Brown sugar, cinnamon, and rolls piled high and ready when you are.
