Warning: This is not a healthy recipe by any stretch of the imagination. I repeat, NOT. HEALTHY. It is, however, easy and delicious. And hey, everything in moderation, right?
The recipe starts off with a freshly baked Cinnabon roll...you know the one that lures you in from across the mall? Yup, that one. So, you'll start with one or two of them, or a whole pack if you're feeding a crowd. And you'll slice the Cinnabon rolls horizontally, as if you're slicing a loaf of bread.
You see where I'm going with this yet? Okay, you will in a second. Now take some milk, an egg, and some vanilla extract.
Thereeee it is. Yup, we're making french toast!
Whisk those up together, melt some butter in a skillet, dip your Cinnabon slices in the egg wash, cook until golden brown on each side and voila! You've got yourself the ultimate breakfast (Christmas morning anyone?).
I mean, presentation wise, these are way prettier than regular french toast. Dust some powdered sugar on top and they look like they came straight out of a five star restaurant. And taste wise, well you can't go wrong with the rich buttery cinnamon-sugar goodness of a Cinnabon cinnamon roll. If you're feeling extra gluttonous, drizzle on some maple syrup. Hey, breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so you might as well make it count :)
