Pillsbury French Toast Bake

Alright – so I know this is a health and fitness blog but sometimes you really just need to treat yourself. If you have a sweet tooth – this is going to fix it with just one bite. I introduce to you: Pillsbury French Toast Bake

It is not healthy at all. At all. But it is delicious and something I make every year on Christmas morning and I INDULGE and ENJOY! And Pillsbury French Toast Bake is super simple!

Ingredients:

1/4 cup melted butter

2 cans of Pillsbury refrigerated cinnamon rolls

5 eggs

1/2 cup heavy whipping cream

Pillsbury French Toast Bake is one of my favorite Christmas traditions!!

2 tsp ground cinnamon

2 tsp vanilla

1 cup chopped pecans (optional)

3/4 cup maple syrup

–I told you there was nothing healthy about this!! —

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven at 375 degrees
  2. Melt butter and pour into a 13×9 glass baking dish
  3. Take each cinnamon roll and cut it into 8 pieces – think of it like cutting a pizza. The pieces will be small chunks – perfection is un-necessary!
  4. Drop chopped cinnamon roll into the pan with the butter. Make sure it is spread out to form a single layer. If there is some space inbetween, it’s fine – these will grow as you cook them
  5. Beat eggs in a medium bowl and add in heavy whipping cream, vanilla, and cinnamon until well mixed. Pour over the pan of cinnamon rolls.
  6. Sprinkle with pecans – if pecans are your thing – and drizzle with the 3/4 cup of syrup
  7. Bake for 20-28 minutes and let cool for about 15
  8. Lightly heat the icings in the microwave -REMOVE THE METAL LID! If you want another method, leave the containers on top of your oven – the heat from the rolls baking will soften the icing.
  9. Drizzle icing all over the bake, and serve with syrup as a side

My family LOVES this! It is super filling, tastes amazing, and just a wonderful, easy, fun breakfast on Christmas morning.

Hope you enjoy and Merry Christmas!!!
