Variation Ideas

  • Milk – We usually make this recipe with whole milk, but you can substitute with almond milk.
  • Chopped Nuts – For more added flavor and texture add in chopped pecans or slice almonds.
  • Cream Cheese Icing – We usually use the icing that comes with the cinnamon rolls, but feel free to make your own.

Step 5 – Finally, pour all of this egg mixture over the cinnamon rolls in the pan.

  • Step 6 – Put the casserole in the oven and bake uncovered until it is golden brown. This normally takes about 30 minutes. Just make sure it is cooked through the middle.

  15. Carrie says:

    Love it!

  16. Leona says:

    I make this at Christmas. While my other 2 casseroles are baking, hash brown & breakfast casserole, I put this together & pop it in the oven when they come out. I also add the biscuits to the oven at the same time! Organize!

  17. Stacy says:

    Can you make it and reheat it or is it only good served immediately?

  18. Carrie says:

    Lisa – I have not done that before with this recipe but I think that it would work as long as you cover it in the refrigerator over night. Let me know how it turns out. Thank you!

  19. Lisa says:

    Can I put this together the night before and just put into the oven in the morning? Trying to save some time.

  20. Lisa says:
