Cinnamon Roll French Toast Bake

On Jan 2, I posted a video from Cooking Met Daan on my Facebook page. I finally got around to making it myself. It was a huge success.

According to the video it takes:
2 tubes of cinnamon rolls, save the frosting
6 eggs
1/2 milk
2 t cinnamon
2 t vanilla
1 cup maple syrup

Coat 9 x 13-inch pan with melted butter. Cut up the rolls into bite size pieces. Add to pan. Mix eggs, milk, cinnamon, and vanilla. Add to pan with the cut up rolls.  Drizzle over the maple syrup. Bake at 375 degrees for about 25 minutes. Frost with the frosting from the cinnamon rolls.

It turned out crispy on top and moist, like french toast, on the bottom. I would make this again. I might add bacon next time.

Holiday Food

Yum! There is nothing like having delicious food for the holidays.

Oreo Truffles. You have probably seen this on Pinterest. Ground up Oreos mixed with cream cheese then coated with chocolate.
Another dessert that is popular is pumpkin pie dessert with the cream cheese layer then the pumpkin layer, usually has instant vanilla pudding mixed in with the pumpkin. Well I enjoyed the Oreo Truffle on top of my pie.

Happy Holidays to everyone.
