Cinnamon Roll Casserole Recipe!! #FoodieFriday

What is it about the weekend that just makes you want to bake some goodies? Although I'm always up for mixing something up in the kitchen, I believe Fridays and Saturdays are when I'm most likely to be baking. Case in point, I have a batch of Fudgy Peanut Butter Chip Cookies chilling in the refrigerator right now! It's a new recipe, so if they turn out the way I expect, I'll be sure to share the recipe on here in the near future. Today though, I'd like to share an easy breakfast recipe that I served Christmas morning-a Cinnamon Roll Casserole!!


Ingredients:
2 tablespoons melted Butter
2 cans Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls
4 Eggs
1/2 cup Heavy Whipping Cream
2 teaspoons Cinnamon
2 teaspoons Vanilla
1 cup Chopped Pecans

Directions:
Pour melted butter in a 13x9 baking dish. Cut each cinnamon roll into 6 pieces, place in pan. 
In a bowl, beat eggs. Add in cinnamon, cream, and vanilla. Pour over cinnamon rolls, sprinkle with pecans. Bake at 375 for 20-28 minutes, or until rolls are golden brown. Cool for 15 minutes. Microwave icing for 10-15 seconds, until a pour-able consistency. Drizzle icing over top of cooled casserole and serve.






As you can imagine, this casserole is delicious. I don't normally use pre-made doughs and such, but for Christmas morning I made an exception! This is super easy to prepare, and was wolfed down by the entire family-I think everyone asked for seconds!
Look at all the gooey, cinnamon goodness!


(Credit must be given where credit is due-this recipe was taken and slightly adapted from Pillsbury!)

This sounds amazing, much better then the french toast casserole that I make. I'm going to try it next next time I have brunch.
