Apple Pie Cinnamon Roll Casserole

make ahead breakfast casseroles are my jam for any christmas morning, heck any morning.  between opening presents, assembling toys, finishing a puzzle, anything i can do to make life simpler, sign me up please.  
i ended up prepping this beauty the night before so christmas morning was an absolute breeze.  it bakes while you are opening presents, enjoying a baileys and coffee, and collecting all the wrapping paper while figuring out how you tell the kids "no we don't have batteries"

hope you all had a wonderful holiday season.
