Cinnamon Roll Casserole

For years, it’s been a Christmas tradition to make Cinnamon Rolls for breakfast and either eat them after presents, during presents or before presents. They’re filling enough and just the right food to go with a nice cup of warm Wassail. But this year, I decided to try a new recipe I found on Pinterest. Cinnamon Roll Casserole. It looked easy, delicious and seemed like a good variation to our normal traditions. When I made this, I prepped it the night before, but I put the cut up Cinnamon Rolls into one container and mixed the liquid ingredients in another container. Come Christmas morning I just dumped, poured and baked. I have to say, it was an easy recipe and was quite delicious, BUT since this is a casserole, I could taste the slight egg flavor in it. It wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t something I could eat a lot of either. The original recipe also calls for pecans and maple syrup, neither of which I like, so I didn’t add them. Overall, I’d give this recipe a thumbs up and it’s worth a try!

  • 2 tablespoons of melted butter or baking spray
  • 2 cans (12.4 oz each) Pillsbury® refrigerated cinnamon rolls with icing
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2  teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2  teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 cup chopped Pecans
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • Icing from cinnamon rolls
  • Maple syrup (if desired) –I found it was sweet enough without it.
  • Heat oven to 375°F. Pour melted butter into ungreased 13×9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish.
  • Separate both cans of dough into 16 rolls; set icing aside. Cut each roll into 8 pieces; place pieces over butter in dish.
  • In a medium bowl, beat eggs. Beat in cream, cinnamon and vanilla until well blended; gently pour over roll pieces. Sprinkle with pecans; drizzle with 1/4 cup syrup.
  • Bake 20 to 28 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 15 minutes. Meanwhile, remove covers from icing; microwave on Medium (50%) 10 to 15 seconds or until thin enough to drizzle.
  • Drizzle icing over top.  If desired, spoon syrup over individual servings.
