Variations:

  • Slow Cooker Apple Cinnamon Rolls: My favorite variation is to make slow cooker apple cinnamon rolls.  To create this recipe, add a layer of diced up apples after the first layer of the cinnamon rolls.  The addition of the apples creates a delicious apple cinnamon flavor that no one can resist.
  • Banana Cinnamon Rolls: Another variation is to add ½ cup of brown sugar to the top prior to the icing. Then top with sliced bananas you can even add in chopped pecans for added flavor.  This brown sugar and banana combination adds a delicious flavor to this crockpot cinnamon roll casserole.
  • Cinnamon Rolls with Heavy Cream: You can make this recipe with heavy cream instead of milk.  Just substitute have cream or heavy whipping cream in place of the milk. The heavy whipping cream adds a nice creamy flavor in this easy recipe.
  • Cinnamon Rolls with Nuts: We like having nuts in our cinnamon rolls. You can sprinkle your nuts in so they bake right in or you can sprinkle a few on top. Either way, these Cinnamon Rolls will be the top requested breakfast, I am sure of it.

There are tons of options to change this recipe to make it your all time favorite. This makes for the perfect lazy weekend breakfast recipe.

  5. Yes, you can but let the crock pot come to room temperature before cooking it in the crock pot the next morning.

  6. Yes, the eggs are necessary to make this casserole. I recommend cooking it longer to prevent it from being soggy and cooked through at the bottom.

  7. I just made this for our Christmas brunch and added diced apples. It is delicious! I am looking forward to trying this in the summer with diced fresh peaches and blueberries! Would be extra yummy with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
