The last thing you want to think about on Thanksgiving day, is more food. Growing up my family typically didn’t eat much on Thanksgiving just to save room for FEAST ! Since we did not do our traditional thanksgiving this year, I made breakfast for everyone. It was easy. delicious. and everyone loved it.
Cinnamon French Toast Bake Recipe
1/4 cup melted butter
2 12.4 oz cans of cinnamon rolls with icing
1/2 cup of heavy whipping cream
2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons of vanilla
1 cup chopped pecans – we omitted this ingredient due to picky eaters in the house !!!!
3/4 of maple syrup – I am certain any syrup if fine.
Icing from cinnamon rolls
Additional maple syrup
Melt butter and pour onto an UNgreased 13×9 inch glass dish. Separate each cinnamon roll ( 16 rolls total ) and cut each roll into 8 small pieces. Set aside the icing for later use. Add diced cinnamon rolls to buttered baking dish.
Beat eggs in a medium bowl. Add cream, cinnamon and vanilla. Continue to beat until well blended. Pour over diced cinnamon rolls. If desired, sprinkle pecans and 3/4 cup of maple syrup over mixture.
Bake at 375 degrees for 20-28 minutes or until golden brown. Mine took about 25-28 minutes.Cool for 15 minutes.
Remove the metal covering from icing and microwave on 50% power for about 10-15 seconds or until icing is pourable. Drizzle icing over cinnamon bake. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and additional syrup!
