Canned Biscuits “French Toast” Casserole

I mean who knew!  Who knew that you could use canned biscuits to make anything to do with French Toast?  Yes, it is true!  You’re going to be super shocked by this one!  I have to warn you, it is sooo TASTY!  I almost wanted to name it French Toast Monkey Bread.  Lol!

I promise this is not too good to be true! This one I used all ingredients that I already had and it was one of those days that I didn’t feel like making that extra trip to the grocery store to pick up brioche bread.  Now I am clearly not saying that brioche bread isn’t better because it really is.  I am just saying this is a really good alternative.  Really good!   I always make the best recipes out of using what I have in my kitchen and what’s on my tastebuds. This one doesn’t disappoint!
