Cinnamon Roll French Toast


      Do you have company coming over? Do you want to entertain with ease? I sure do.
   Every Sunday I make a special breakfast for my babies and they look forward to it. They
   actually start talking about it on Saturday night. Mom, what are you making for Sunday
   breakfast? There is no greater joy than seeing smiles on your children's faces when -
   they love your food. So rewarding. You will love it, your kids, spouse and guests.

                                                        Cinnamon Roll French Toast

                  2 cans cinnamon rolls with icing
                  4 eggs
                  4 tablespoons butter, melted
                  1/2 cup half and half
                  1 cup maple syrup, plus 1/2 cup for drizzling
                  2 teaspoons cinnamon
                  a dash of nutmeg
                  2 teaspoons sugar
                  2 teaspoons vanilla
               
          1) Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
          2) Place melted butter in a 9 by 13 baking pan.
          3) Cut cinnamon rolls in to eight pieces. ( reserve icing until the end )
          4) Place cut rolls into the pan with butter.
          5) Mix 4 eggs, half and half, cinnamon, vanilla, sugar, and nutmeg. Pour
          over rolls.
          6) Pour one cup of maple syrup on top and bake for 30 minutes.
          7) Once rolls are cooked. Drizzle icing on top and serve with extra syrup.

           Note - I microwaved the icing for 10 seconds before pouring on top.


                                               Perfect to serve on Christmas morning!
