Christmas Breakfast, Or Any Time ;D
Oh my. It was good. Something online caught my eye, and I ended up combining a couple of recipes to get this:
1/4 C Butter - melt in 9x13 casserole in 375F oven while you prepare the rest...
2 Cans of Cinnamon Rolls - cut each roll into six or eight pieces. Save the little cans of frosting for later.
In a bowl, mix
6-8 eggs with three teenage boys, I put in more
1/2 C eggnog or milk, or heavy cream
1 t vanilla
1/4 t nutmeg
1-2 t cinnamon
You could add in a half cup or so of maple syrup, but I'm not overly fond of it so I didn't.
When the butter is melted and starting to brown, take the casserole out of the oven and pour in the pieces of cinnamon rolls. I stirred them gently to spread the butter all over them.
Pour the egg mixture over the top. I added
1 C chopped pecans but nuts are optional. The boys aren't crazy about them, so I clustered them at one end - more for me!
Bake for 25-30 minutes.
Warm the frosting cup for a few seconds in the microwave, and drizzle it over the top. I only used one of the two cups because I didn't want it too sweet.
Serve with syrup. And we like the sausage links on the side - love that mix of sweet and savory :D
This was SO EASY. If I was ambitious, I could have made my own cinnamon roll dough the night before, and I may try that sometime. But for a Christmas morning breakfast? Easy prep, not much clean-up, and quick! Win-win!
