If you stored the leftover of the casserole in the same dish it was baked in, you can slide the entire dish back into the oven to reheat. Be careful when reheating the french toast in the oven. You want to make sure to only heat it through. If you overheat it, it will become too dry. Another way to reheat it is in the microwave. This is good for reheating single servings.
How Long Does Cinnamon Roll Casserole
When you store the cinnamon roll casserole in the refrigerator it will stay fresh for up to 4 days. If the casserole is not covered well, it will dry out sooner and will not taste as good.
Can Oven French Toast Casserole be made in a Slow Cooker
You can easily turn this recipe into a slow cooker recipe. Combine all of the ingredients together in the same way you do for the oven casserole. Instead of baking the casserole in the oven, you will add it to the slow cooker. The cooking time in a slow cooker is 2 hours on high or 4-6 hours on low.
