We were happy to have my sister join us for Thanksgiving this year. I only have one sister and we are very close even though we live 4 hours from each other. We talk on the phone almost every day. When I need someone to entertain my kids for just a minute I let them call her and talk. My boys LOVE her. I’m pretty sure she feels the same way about them. She visits us enough that we have named our guest room as “her” room. We are always begging her to come visit!
She wanted to help with some of the meals while she was here. I asked her to bring breakfast for Thanksgiving Day. She brought this most scrumptious Cinnamon Roll French Toast. She is always finding fun recipes. She got started on it and before I knew it she had breakfast in the oven and I didn’t even get a chance to take step by step pictures. I know it was super simple to make! And I know you are all smart, so I’m sure with her instructions you can figure it out!!
I knew this was going to be my kind of breakfast recipe when she told me about this french toast bake. It used the simplest ingredients. It was extra quick. Once it started to bake my house smelled absolutely amazing. The best part was when she started drizzling frosting all over the french toast. Oh mercy I can’t resist warm frosting settling in every cinnamon roll crevice! She served it with warm maple syrup too! So naughty!!
My boys ranted and raved about this Cinnamon Roll French Toast! They have requested it a million times since then. I don’t think I will make it for them. I will tell them if they want it again they will have to beg their Aunt into coming back and making it again. That will be a win win for everyone. They get their Cinnamon Roll French Toast and I will get my sister to come see me! What could be better than that?
