Cooktop Cove: Unwrap 2 cinnamon rolls. In no time, get a easy, tasty dish you can eat at anytime of day
I love French toast. There's something about it that signals the beginning of a great weekend. On Saturdays, my husband and I usually celebrate our day off by making a huge breakfast, followed by a vigorous hike or a ton of yardwork to prevent us from going back to sleep!
This delicious cinnamon roll French toast casserole is one of my weekend favorite recipes. Gooey cinnamon rolls meet sweet and eggy French toast, plus cream cheese icing (and who doesn't love cream cheese icing?). By using refrigerator cinnamon rolls, this dish is done in a flash. It really just doesn't get better than that!
