Original post:  I have been meaning to post my favorite new recipe from the holidays: Cinnamon Roll Casserole!  I’ve made this about 4 times in the past month, and everyone loves it!!  This recipe is super easy and requires hardly any prep time. It’s perfect for a brunch, potluck or holiday breakfast!  I also like that it’s a fairly inexpensive recipe for the quantity made, it can easily be doubled and most of the ingredients you probably have at home: vanilla extract, cinnamon, sugar, nutmeg and eggs ;) I hope you enjoy!

Cinnamon Roll French Toast Casserole

Cinnamon roll Casserole

Adapted from here


2 cans Cinnamon rolls
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/3 cup sugar
2 eggs
3/4 cup heavy whipping cream (half & half works too)
3 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup chopped pecans
Icing from cinnamon roll packages

1. In a large glass bowl, melt butter with sugar. 

2. Beat in eggs, cream, cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla.

3. Open canned cinnamon rolls, slice each cinnamon roll into fourths. Place cinnamon roll pieces into the bowl of egg mixture and toss to thoroughly coat.Then pour the pieces, coated in egg mixture, into a greased 9×12 casserole dish and spread out evenly. Use any leftover egg mixture to coat the casserole.

4. Sprinkle with pecans and then bake on 350˚ on a low rack for 35-40 minutes or until brown (I stuck a toothpick inside to determine if the casserole was ready. I like mine a little on the moist side, baked for about 35 minutes.)

5. Remove casserole from oven. Warm icing from cinnamon rolls in microwave for 15 seconds; pour evenly over bake.

Serves: 6-8

    I have mine in the oven right now. Why have 1/2 and 1/2 in the ingredient list but not actually use it?

      The half and half can be used in place of the heavy whipping cream. The cream or half and half is used in step 2.
