Cinnamon Roll French Toast
One beautiful Friday morning my coworker brought us all cinnamon rolls. We ate a bunch of them, but couldn’t finish them all, and when go home time came around, there were still a few left. Nobody else wanted them, so I took them home to make cinnamon roll french toast.
It’s actually the perfect use for day old cinnamon rolls, because most french toast recipes tell you that day-old bread actually soaks up the batter better anyway. What I didn’t take into account was the icing. It got very sticky, and made a total mess of my poor cast iron skillet.
Ultimately, they were delicious. I have no idea what I put in the batter – it was probably my typical french toast recipe, but without the sugar because heck if you need to add sugar to cinnamon rolls. But it might also have been something a bit more basic. Either way, it worked its messy self out and became a divine food-coma inducing breakfast.
Do not do this too often. But if you do, you will at least die happy.
