Cinnamon French Toast Bake

Here is a very simple French toast bake for this weekend.

1/4 cup melted butter
2 cans Pillsbury refrigerated cinnamon rolls with icing
4 eggs
1 cup half and half
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup brown sugar

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Pour the melted butter into a 13 × 9 baking dish covering the bottom of the dish.

Cut each uncooked cinnamon roll into 4 pieces.  Scatter the cinnamon roll pieces over the melted butter.  Set the icing aside.

Lightly beat the eggs.  Add in the half and half, vanilla, cinnamon, brown sugar and salt and whisk until well blended. Pour the mixture over the cinnamon roll pieces. Scatter the chopped pecans on top.

Bake for 30-32 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool.  Shift powdered sugar on top. Slightly warm the cinnamon roll icing in the microwave for a few seconds. Drizzle the icing over the French toast bake before serving.

Serve with maple syrup on the side.

Variation - Add some apple sauce or chop up apple pie filling into small parts and it will be a Apple French fritter bake.

Have a great Friday, be happy and may God be with you and yours.
