Cinnamon Roll French Toast Casserole

Cinnamon roll French toast casserole is one of my new go-to breakfasts. It is a breeze to make in just 30 minutes and can be made right in the Instant Pot saving you oven space for another great recipe like our gluten-free breakfast casserole.  It truly is one of the best easy breakfast recipes.
