A melt in your mouth cinnamon roll casserole made in a slow cooker. This is one delicious breakfast that your entire family will devour!
Slow Cooker Cinnamon Roll Breakfast Casserole
This is the Gooseberry Patch Slow-Cooker Christmas Favorites recipe almost to a T. I made very few changes: the frosting is all on top, the original recipe calls for it in between layers. I also upgraded to heavy whipping cream, and vanilla extract.
Slow Cooker Cinnamon Roll Breakfast Casserole Mise en Place:
That is what it looks like unfrosted.
This recipe is too much for two people. Seriously. If you have a small slow cooker and want to make half a recipe for 2-3 people, I think it would work. Just watch the cooking times as I have not done it myself, and I don’t know if the cooking time is less in a smaller slow cooker.
Also, this was terrible day 2. Just sayin’. For as good as it was day 1 (OMG I wanted to eat the entire pot! and this is a serving for EIGHT!), day two it did not reheat well. At all. So, consume on day 1 or face dried out Slow Cooker Cinnamon Roll Breakfast Casserole on day 2.
How to make Slow Cooker Cinnamon Roll Breakfast Casserole in the oven?
In comments people have asked over the years how to make this cinnamon roll breakfast casserole in the oven. I honestly do not know. However, someone pinned this on Pinterest. Someone saw that pin and left this comment along with a photo of their finished casserole (which looked amazing):
Followed the recipe, but baked in a 9×13 at 325 degrees for 45 minutes. Turned out really good!
Remember, I have not done it, but that is the first time I have seen an actual time and temp for this recipe in the oven, and it is a place to start!
