Homemade Cinnamon Roll Casserole Recipe

I love a good breakfast casserole. I don’t make them very often…and I have no idea why. They’re way easier than making waffles in my opinion…and this one happens to include bacon AND icing, so there’s that. You just kind of dump everything in a pan and bake it up!

They sometimes do require a little “ahead” prep, but in this case that only means frying bacon…

ORRRR buy the pre-cooked. Absolutely take the shortcut if you want! I actually fry my bacon on my cast iron skillet on the grill outside. I love the smell of bacon, but don’t love the lingering odor it gives my house for the next 2 days after frying…SO the grill solves my problem!

And did I mention there’s icing involved? Yeah that…

How to Make Cinnamon Roll Breakfast Bake:

Just cut some cinnamon rolls up. Not the fancy big cinnamon rolls, just the small ones.

Place all your cinnamon roll pieces in a 9×13 pan evenly, along with some melted butter.

Now to the bacon…I prefer my bacon crispy for this recipe (and always). You will need to crumble it up, so crispy bacon works best.

Sprinkle it on top…

Also, you can add nuts at this point if you want…Sometimes I add them, sometimes I don’t.

Then mix up some eggs, milk and vanilla and pour that all on top!

When it’s baked it will look like this…

Then get your icing ready! I heat mine in the microwave for about 10-15 seconds, just enough to make it pour-able…

Serve this warm!

  1. I’ve made this several times for my family and we all love it! My dad didn’t think he would like it and tried a small piece. He ended up eating 2 large servings afterwards. It’s definitely a constant request in our home.

  2. Love this! I have made this so many times. My mom even freezes the little bit of leftover and pops it into the toaster oven the next day. I also cheat and use the real bacon from hormel or Oscar meyer. (Not bacon bits) I have taken it to work in the morning too. Because it’s totally easy!
