What could be better than hot, gooey homemade cinnamon rolls straight from the oven?! This easy breakfast casserole combines all of your favorite qualities of a cinnamon roll in one delicious dish that the whole family can enjoy!

Cinnamon bun casserole:

Ingredients:

  • 2 – 12.4oz containers of Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp chopped pecans, optional

Tip: homemade cream cheese icing can also be added to the top of the casserole but using the icing that comes with the cinnamon rolls is just as good in our opinion!
