This recipe makes for the perfect brunch dish or even side dish! There is nothing better than the sweet aroma of cinnamon rolls baking in the morning. I prepped everything the day before and when it was time to bake I just poured my egg mixture over the cinnamon rolls and popped it in the oven. SO easy!
This dish makes great leftovers, just heat em’ up and enjoy. If you are wanting to eat this as a dessert- skip the frosting part and add a scoop (or two) of vanilla ice-cream. If you wanted to switch it up and add some savory flavor to this dish, sprinkle crumbled bacon on top and in-between the cinnamon roll pieces before placing it in the oven.
