Cinnamon Roll Casserole

Cinnamon Roll Casserole: An easy, delicious french toast type breakfast casserole that can be made using refrigerated cinnamon rolls and everyday ingredients!

Oh heavens. Why oh why does the colder weather call for comfort food like this cinnamon roll casserole?

When the weather starts turning a bit chilly, I always think back to my grandma’s cinnamon rolls that she would spend HOURS making in the kitchen each year.

When they were hot and ready, she’d dial her rotary phone and call up to our house (which was only a hop, skip and a jump away) and say,

“I have cinnamon rolls ready for you.”

My dad would immediately start lacing up his boots (if they weren’t already on from feeding the cows that day) hop on his four-wheeler and head down to pick up those infamous rolls that she stored in a plastic ziptop bag for our entire family.

Now although I loved her dearly, and her cinnamon rolls were like no others… you PROBABLY won’t catch me in the kitchen for hours on end making them each year because I’m such a sucker for using refrigerated cinnamon rolls to get a cinnamon roll “fix”. They just make it super quick and easy for busy mama’s like us these days.

Now although I’ve called this a cinnamon roll casserole, this could easily be called a cinnamon french toast casserole because of the eggs and maple syrup drizzle… so call it whatever you like, and whatever tickles your fancy!
