Simple Cinnamon Roll French Toast


Today I have a recipe I'm sharing that is perfect for feeding a crowd for breakfast. I've been looking for volunteer opportunities lately and have begun helping at church by providing breakfast once a month for the volunteers in the children department. We started the first week by just providing fruit, bagels, and other store bought breakfast staples. Since then, though, we've started bringing some baked treats and dishes that we created.

One week I brought sausage balls, another week we made a egg and sausage casserole. This past week, though, we tried a new recipe that was a hit - Cinnamon Roll French Toast Bake! As soon as I saw the recipe on Pinterest, I knew I had to try it. As a trial run, I first experimented with the recipe and shared with friends. It was a hit, so I decided to share with the group. The recipe is definitely one that is best to share with others, I would be tempted to eat too much if it stayed around the house!

We really enjoy sharing the food and hopefully provide the volunteers with some refreshment!



We got a lot of positive response to the recipe, we will definitely be making it again. The recipe is so simple - you start with refrigerated cinnamon rolls. You add just a few ingredients and bake, it couldn't be much easier to make.
