Cinnamon French Toast Bake

It's National French Toast Day, today! Yep, let's all eat a delicious breakfast today smothered in our favorite toppings. Ours is just plain old maple syrup and powdered sugar. I made this French Toast Bake for the first time a few years ago on Christmas morning. It was so easy to put together, no standing over the stove cooking a big breakfast on such a busy day. It baked while we opened gifts and when the timer went off, we all dug in. EASY! This time I made in before school and my kids were so happy to have a special treat instead of just cereal. It's quick and easy to put together and you can be busy doing other things while it's cooking.

Cinnamon French Toast Bake
from Pillsbury

1/4 cup butter, melted
2 cans Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls with Icing
6 eggs
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
2 tsp vanilla
 2 tsp cinnamon
1 cup chopped Pecans
1 cup maple syrup

Icing from Cinnamon Rolls
Powdered Sugar
1/2 cup maple syrup

Heat oven to 375. Pour Melted butter into ungreased 13x9 glass baking dish. Separate both cans of dough; set icing aside. Cut each cinnamon roll into 6 pieces; place pieces into the melted butter dish.

In medium bowl, beat eggs. Beat in cream, vanilla and cinnamon until well blended; gently pour over roll pieces. Sprinkle with pecans; drizzle with 1 cup of syrup over the top. Bake 20 to 28 minutes or until golden brown and finished. Cool 15 minutes.

After your dish has cooled, slightly microwave icing for 10 seconds. Drizzle icing over top, sprinkle with powdered sugar. Serve with additional maple syrup if desired.
