Cinnamon Roll French Toast Muffins

Today is my sweet husband's birthday so to start off his day, I made him a festive, fun breakfast that included these muffins.  The original recipe can be found HERE at Deliciously Sprinkled. I made a few modifications so I'll give you the recipe below.
The recipe calls for two cans of "Grands" Cinnamon Rolls or three cans of regular.  I don't know what's up (maybe all of this cold weather??) but twice now my grocery store has been sold out of the large rolls so I got three cans of the regular size.  Remove the icing packets and set those aside. I cut each roll into four pieces (To save time I just stacked 3-4 on top of each other and cut them all at once).  They separate on their own when you put them in the 'egg bath' and toss them around.
Here they are ready to go into the oven.  I topped them with star and teddy bear sprinkles but wouldn't these be fun for holidays topped with Christmas or Valentine or Easter sprinkles??  Be sure to grease your muffin tin WELL.  I REALLY greased mine and they still stuck a little bit.
20 minutes in a 375 degree oven and they were big and puffy!  Let them cool a bit before icing.
YUM!!! These were so tasty!  
Once you heat the icing for a few seconds in the microwave, drizzle the muffins with it and add a few more sprinkles (I mean, can you EVER have too many sprinkles??)
Combined with a spinach and cheese omelet, a special 'banana split' (recipe for that coming next!) and a few candles and it's Happy Birthday Hubby!  

Cinnamon Roll French Toast Muffins

2 package of Grands Cinnamon Rolls OR 3 packages of regular cinnamon rolls
2 eggs
1/4 c milk/almond milk/cream (I used Almond Milk just because that's what I had)
1 t vanilla

Combine milk, eggs and vanilla in a bowl.
Cut cinnamon rolls into 4 pieces if using regular size and 8 pieces of using the Grands. 
Toss cinnamon roll pieces in egg mixture and place in heavily greased muffin tin.  Fill tins over the top with the roll pieces.
Drizzle any extra egg mixture over top.
Bake 20 minutes at 375 degrees.
Remove from oven and let cool slightly.
Heat icing packets in microwave for 5-10 seconds and drizzle icing over top of muffins.  
Top with additional sprinkles


On any given week (depending on how busy I am!) I love to participate in Link Parties.  These gals put a lot of time and effort into hosting these parties so I always want to show my appreciation by directing my readers to these blogs. 








  1. Okay, I just came from another friend's blog where she shared some cookie bars and now I'm seeing these yummy muffins...I CAN'T TAKE IT! I am drooling over here - HA! Wish I could stop in for a little visit. Hugs to you, dear one!

  2. Happy Birthday to your dear husband, Lauren. These cinnamon roll muffins look amazing. I've never heard of it before. You made a nice breakfast for his special day. I just made French toast the other day, and when I make it, I put a good amount of butter and sprinkle with powdered sugar. One of my favorite things to eat. : ) I hope his day is filled with all the things he loves.
