No surprise here. ANOTHER BuzzFeed Tasty treat.  They’re just SO GOOD! I can’t help it, and y’all KNOW you like when I make ’em, so shut it LOL!  This crazy sweet treat , Cinnamon Roll French Toast Bake, was just as easy, if not easier, than the dish in my previous post, the Blueberry Croissant Breakfast Bake.  The day I made all this stuff, I must’ve been in a G-REAT mood, because I usually make one pan of something hot and call it a day.  But, I was feeling like Betty Crocker & Patti Labelle all in one that day, so it just flowed.  My community residents appreciated every bite though, cleaned the pan, DRY.

So, to save time, I did my whole meal prep thing the night before.  I took two cans of cinnamon rolls and  cut them up into little squares.  I believe there were eight cinnamon rolls in each can.  Once they were cut up, I placed them in a 9×13 glass pan, with four tablespoons of melted butter coating the pan, all over.  I left that in the refrigerator, covered with foil, to sit overnight.

The next morning, I pulled the cinnamon rolls from the fridge, let them soften to room temperature.  The overnight step doesn’t change the recipe at all.  That was all my doing.  I took a glass bowl and mixed together six eggs, half a cup of milk, I used 2%, two teaspoons vanilla extract and two teaspoons of cinnamon.  Whisk that up really, really well.  Whisk it.  Whisk it GOOOOOD.

Once that’s done, pour it all over the cinnamon rolls, every last drop.  Then, take a cup of maple syrup and drizzle that on top.  Place that pretty little thang in the oven for 25 minutes at 375 degrees.  When you pull it out of the oven, it’s crispy on top, but the inside is moist, cinnamon roll, hot, soft, sweetness.

Oh, but we’re not done yet.  So, you know the icing that comes in each can of cinnamon rolls?  If they’re not soft enough to drizzle, place them in the microwave for about 15 seconds, not long at all.  Be careful taking them out.  Last, but not least, gracefully, and ever so slowly, pour it all over the cinnamon rolls.  The more the better.  And I do mean that in the fattest way possible.
