French Toast Muffin Cups

These french toast muffin cups are topped with a crunchy cinnamon streusel. They’re a cross between french toast, bread pudding and muffins!

I’m kind of obsessed with breakfast and brunch, thankfully my family is too! Lately we’ve been doing lots of freezer-friendly (or overnight) French toast bakes and casseroles. They’re easy to pop in the oven in the morning, and leave little to no dishes to clean up (hello Thanksgiving or Christmas morning, or lazy weekends)! These streusel topped muffins are our latest creation. They’re perfect for little hands or those of us who love bite-size food.

What I love most about these French toast muffin cups, is that they’re made with pantry staples. Just grab a loaf of your favorite bread (white bread, challah, croissants or cinnamon raisin bread), cube it and let it dry out. Toss the bread into the liquid mixture, place into a 12 cup muffin pan, sprinkle with the topping and bake until golden brown and delicious!

If you’re trying to plan ahead, you can toss these in the fridge and let them soak up all of that cinnamon goodness overnight. Just put them in the oven to bake first thing in the morning. Super easy!

If you want to jazz these up a bit, you could mix in fresh or frozen fruit, or even chopped nuts. We dusted ours with powdered sugar and drizzled them with warm maple syrup. They were gone in minutes!
