Cinnamon Roll Casserole Ingredients
- Refrigerated cinnamon rolls
Think of cinnamon roll casserole almost like a cross between French Toast and Cinnamon Rolls.
Refrigerated cinnamon rolls get placed at the bottom of the pan and then topped with a mixture of milk, eggs, cinnamon, sugar, and vanilla. (To help the rolls bake more evenly and thoroughly you can unwrap them in strips or just loosen up the rolls a bit.)
It all gets baked in the oven and then topped with sweet icing!
This easy breakfast casserole makes several servings so it’s great to feed the whole family or serve for a girls brunch.
Of course cinnamon rolls don’t just have to be for breakfast or brunch, they also make a delicious dessert. Combine them with peaches for a scrumptious Cinnamon Roll Peach Bake.
