Every Christmas Morning I bake up Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls while the kids are opening gifts and usually serve them along with juice, milk and sausage. I like to keel breakfast light since we have a big family dinner in the early afternoon. Thanksgiving we don’t usually have any traditions since we tend to head out to visit family for the turkey feast.

This year I wanted to make something special for the kids for breakfast on Thanksgiving morning. I had just visited BJs wholesale the night before and picked up a 4-pack of cinnamon rolls so it just seemed perfect that I made something different with them. I’ve seen recipes for cinnamon roll waffles but we have a Belgian waffle iron so that wasn’t going to work. I love french toast casserole so this felt like the next best thing. It turned out the be THE best thing. This is something I’ll be making again.

    Yummmm! Perfect for holiday company *pinned*

  2. Um yum!!!!! These looks soo good! And with very little effort I think ill be having a test run before Christmas 😉

  3. Oh man this looks so good! I bet the whole family would love it. 🙂

  4. I saw something a lot like this on Pinterest and made it a few months ago for Sunday School breakfast. I didn’t get any complaints, but I didn’t think it was great. I will have to try your version and see if maybe I screwed up the first one!

    • I’ve made them in the past where the bread was soaked in the milk and egg and didn’t like it at all. It was too soft. I like the last minute set up so it isn’t custardy.

  5. Those look delicious! My sons both love anything with cinnamon so I’ll have to try them one weekend morning. Thanks for the recipe.

  6. Not just for early Thanksgiving! Thinking this is a great Christmas morning recipe!

  7. Melinda, I just bookmarked it! Wow, and I think that it sounds yummy! We love cinnamon rolls here in my household.

  8. This looks so good! I can’t really cook but I’ll forward this to my Grandma!

  9. Oh my. I would eat way too much of this YUM!!!
