Christmas is full of family traditions, when my husband and I moved into our very first home we wanted to start a few of our own. Growing up, my mom always made a Christmas morning breakfast. It was a breakfast casserole that we had just that one time of the year and each year we looked forward to it.
With my family I chose to make a Cinnamon Roll French Toast, selfishly because it sounded so delicious to me, and I am a BIG cinnamon roll fan! It’s a hit each year and there are never any leftovers!
2 Tubes Cinnamon Rolls (with icing)
4 Tbsp. butter, melted
1/2 cup almond milk
2 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp vanilla
1 cup maple syrup
Preheat the oven to 375°F
Spray the bottom of a 9×13 glass baking dish
Cut each cinnamon roll into 8 pieces
In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, cinnamon, milk and vanilla
Add your cinnamon roll pieces into the bowl, fold together and coat evenly
Place contents of bowl into your baking dish, use spatula to spread mixture evenly
Pour 3/4 cup of maple syrup over the mixture
Bake at 375°F for 25 min
Remove from oven, top with remaining syrup & the icing from the cinnamon rolls package
