Cinnamon Roll French Toast Casserole

Cinnamon Roll French Toast Casserole

Warm cinnamon rolls in the morning are one of my favorite things.  When they’re covered with cream cheese frosting and filled with gooey cinnamon I just can’t help myself.  So when I saw this recipe on Lemon Tree Dwelling I instantly saved it.  We had a family beach trip planned and I knew my family would love it.

This recipe is so easy to make.  It has eggs in it, that means it’s healthy, right?  Well, that’s my logic and I’m stinking to it.

The cinnamon rolls are cut into small pieces and then the egg mixture is poured over the top.  This is one of those recipes that you can tinker with, which I like.  I think the egg mixture could be doubled to make it more of a casserole and less of a cake consistency.  Don’t get me wrong, I love that it tasted like a giant casserole.  But I think with more egg mixture it would taste more like cinnamon roll french toast.

Warning, your house will smell amazing.

You surely don’t have to make extra frosting.  You can just use the frosting that comes with the cinnamon rolls if you only like a small amount of frosting.  Me?  I like a ton of frosting on mine.
