Every Christmas morning we go to my mom's for a big Christmas breakfast.  This year, I decided to make this new recipe that I found on Pinterest from Oh My Sugar High.  Cinnamon rolls and french toast- sounds like a good combination to me!  This turned out to be super easy to make and super yummy!

Ingredients: 
  • 2 packages of cinnamon rolls
  • 1/4 c. butter
  • 5 eggs
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
1.  Melt butter and spread in a 9 x 13 pan.

2.  Separate the cinnamon rolls and cut each roll into 8 pieces.  Spread in pan.  Save the icing to use later.


3.  Beat eggs together completely in bowl.  Then add the cream, vanilla, and cinnamon to the eggs and mix thoroughly.  Pour over the cinnamon roll pieces.

4.  Drizzle syrup all over and Sprinkle chopped pecans on top.  (I just put pecans on half of mine) 


5.  Bake at 375 degrees for about 22-28 minutes or until golden brown.  Let cool for about 15 minutes.

6.  Take the metal cover off the icing and stick it in the microwave for about 15 seconds or until it is thin enough to drizzle.  Drizzle icing all over the top of the baked cinnamon rolls.


Serve with syrup if desired.  It doesn't need it, but I love lots of syrup, so I added it and I wasn't disappointed! Yum!

      1. That could work! I've never tried it before. I'm thinking it might not be as sweet, but I think it would still be tasty.

    4. Do you just use the canned Pisbury cinnamon rolls one?

    5. Do you have to use heavy cream? Would almond milk work you think?

      1. In my experience, baking with almond milk is not the same.

    7. Just made this & it's kinda soupy on the bottom. Is it supposed to be?

      ReplyDelete

      1. Not really. There may be a little liquid at the bottom depending how much syrup you used, but it sounds like you may have needed to bake it a little bit longer.

    11. LOVE this idea! I usually make fresh cinnamon rolls but they're so much work! This is the perfect substitute for those days when I just don't feel like getting up early but still want something very, very special on the table.

    12. WOW! This looks good. I am going to make this next weekend and see if everyone likes it. (I'm sure they will) Then I think this will be in the oven Christmas morning. Thanks for posting.

    14. Oh Em Gee! I can see a super sugar rush coming on, but oh so worth it! Almost like a bread pudding more than French toast, but amazing nonetheless. Thanks!

      1. No. You don't cook the rolls first. They'll cook in the oven.

      1. I'm not sure I would premake it. I haven't tried that.

      2. I successfully prepped and refrigerated the whole thing and baked it off the next morning. It turned out perfect!!

    22. I tried this followed the directions to the T, and was very disappointed, it was a wet soupy egg mess, and raw at that. Total waste of biscuits not to mention the rest of ingredients and I felt like a disappointment cuz I usually cook everything cook, we had to toss this in trash:( then on top of that is was a pain in rear to clean the dish. The whole recipe sounds delicious but make it calls for to many eggs.......I'd. But it was a complete fail:(

    23. Did you mean 1/4 lb. Or 1/4 cup of butter?

      ReplyDelete
      Replies
      1. It's a 1/4 c if you use a 1/4 lb that would be why people are failing at it.

        Delete
    24. Could this be mixed up the day before and baked the next morning?

      1. I did and it turned out great

    25. How many servings is this? Looks yummy

      ReplyDelete
    26. I only had 1 can of rolls so I halved the recipe, using two eggs and baked it in a 9" Pyrex pie dish. It turned out delicious and very attractive!
      To the people that said it was soupy and raw, that is not Kim's fault, that is actually due to lack of common sense... Cook it longer! 😄

      1. thanks for the input. I wanted to make it at half the recipe!

    27. Can you ommit or replace eggs due to allergies???

      ReplyDelete
    28. I want to try this without the maple syrup. I was thinking of adding 1/4 cup more of the heavy cream to make up for lost liquid. Any thoughts? The syrup and icing together just sounds too sweet for me.

      1. I think you could just omit the syrup and it would be okay.

    29. I made this for Boxing Day Family Christmas and was a total success! Delish!

    30. The aroma it gives when baking is so good, and I just finished eating a plate of it and it is awwwwesome! I will definitely be making this again.

      ReplyDelete
    31. How is when re heated or the next day? Im thinking of making this for a pot luck at work

      ReplyDelete
    32. I halved the recipe and used almond milk instead of cream. I also added 2 TBS of pumpkin puree and used pumpkin pie spice instead of cinnamon. Tasted like fall! Thanks for the inspiration!
