Overnight Cinnamon Roll Casserole & GIVE AWAY! {Holiday Gift Basket from Sister Schubert}

This past Thanksgiving, we created a new holiday tradition at our house ~ easy Overnight Cinnamon Roll Casserole for breakfast Thanksgiving weekend.  With the ease and deliciousness of Sister Schubert's Cinnamon Rolls, it will most likely become a new Christmas breakfast tradition, too!  Thank you so much to Sister Schubert's for sponsoring this post, and for offering YOU the opportunity to enter to win a Holiday Gift Basket from Sister Schubert herself!  {Read on to see how to enter for your chance to win.}

Our family's holiday dinners always include Sister Schubert's Parker House Style Rolls.  So having Sister Schubert at our Thanksgiving dinner table was a given.  But this year ... thanks to the convenience and deliciousness of Sister's Cinnamon Rolls ... Sister Schubert's joined us at our holiday breakfast  table, too.

In the form of amazing, irresistibly delicious, and comforting Overnight Cinnamon Roll Casserole, made with Sister Schubert's Cinnamon Yeast Rolls.

But before we talk about how to whip up this scrumptious Overnight Cinnamon Roll Casserole, let's talk about another heart-warming creation from Sister Schubert's, inspired by Sister's love of needlepoint ... the Sister Schubert's Holiday Needlequotes Site!

And bring back some wonderful family memories!  Like, maybe, this one ...

Many of us know someone like this ... right?

Sadly, I'm not eligible for the give away and can't win the Holiday Gift Basket from Sister Schubert.  But I can  certainly keep whipping up and enjoying batches of my new favorite holiday tradition, Overnight Cinnamon Roll Casserole!

And whipping up this yummy breakfast treat truly couldn't be much easier.

Simply start with Sister Schubert's Cinnamon Yeast Rolls ... slice 'em up by just running a knife through them while they're still in the pan they come in, ... toss the cinnamon roll pieces in a baking pan and pour in an egg-and-milk-and-cinnamon mixture ... and sprinkle on a brown-sugar-pecan topping.

Refrigerate overnight {or for at least 4 hours}, ... and then bake it up 'til it's all nice and golden brown.

Easy, right?

And beautiful.  And I-want-to-dig-in-with-my-fork-RIGHT-NOW yummy looking.

I like to top my Overnight Cinnamon Roll Casserole with a drizzle of pure maple syrup.  And then dive in to the cinnamon goodness.  All thanks to the ease and deliciousness of Sister Schubert's Cinnamon Rolls.

Totally worthy of being a new holiday tradition, don't you think?

(Printable recipe)
  • 2 packages Sister Schubert's Cinnamon Yeast Rolls {thawed or not thawed ... it doesn't matter}
  • 6 eggs, beaten
  • 2 c. half-and-half
  • 1 c. milk
  • 1/4 c. pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • pinch salt
  • 3/4 c. chopped pecans
  • 1/2 c. brown sugar
  • 1/4 c. cold butter, cut in small pieces
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  1. Spray a 9x13" baking pan with non-stick cooking spray. Cut cinnamon rolls into approximately 1-inch pieces: while still in the foil pan, run a knife through the rolls, making slices about 1/2-inch apart; rotate pan and repeat making slices perpendicular to the first slices. Place cinnamon roll pieces in the prepared baking pan, breaking up any large pieces with your fingers.
  2. Combine beaten eggs, half-and-half, milk, maple syrup, vanilla, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt; whisk until well combined. Pour evenly over cinnamon roll pieces.
  3. Combine chopped pecans, brown sugar, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, and butter in a small bowl. Cut with a pastry cutter, two knives, or your fingers until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle evenly over the top of the cinnamon rolls.
  4. Cover and refrigerate overnight {or at least 4 hours}.
  5. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 50-60 minutes until golden brown and set in the center. Serve with maple syrup to drizzle over the top.

  1. Cinnamon roll casserole sounds like the best casserole EVER. Holy smokes. I need that whole pan delivered to me STAT!

  3. Sister Schubert Cinnamon Rolls are the BOMB! Christmas morning would not be the same without them!

  4. Looks like my kind of casserole!! Delicious. xo Catherine

  5. We have never had Sister Schubert rolls. Everyone loves warm rolls in our family so the quote would be Pass the butter please."

    1. That's a quote we hear a lot in our house, too, Sandy H.! Since your family loves warms rolls, you guys should give Sister Schubert's rolls a try ... I highly, highly recommend the Parker House Style Rolls and we especially love the Whole Wheat Dinner Rolls. I swear, my husband eats 5 or 6 of them at a meal!

  6. My son's devour Sister Schubert's rolls. I have to make three times what a person normally would just so we have enough. My needlequote was "you get what you get and you don't throw a fit!"

    1. Great quote! Yes, I'm with you, Heather ... my husband eats 5 or 6 rolls at a meal, so I have to cook an entire bag of Sister Schubert's dinner rolls when I serve them with dinner!

  7. French toast bake happens to be a tradition of ours each year before opening gifts. Last year I made eggnog frech toast bake. Cinnamon roll might need to make the list this year.

  10. What a great way to use the delicious cinnamon rolls! Thanks!!!!!

  11. Leslie:
    When my dad wants to say something is easy, he doesn't say, "Piece of cake," like everyone else. He says, "Duck soup." I should cross stitch a sign for my kitchen.

  12. This looks so easy and delish!! I love easy recipes over the holidays :)

  13. Sister Schubert Parker House rolls are a tradition at every holiday gathering in our home.

  14. We like spending time as a family during the holidays.

  15. We keep a couple bags of Sister Schubert's rolls in our freezer for 'just in case'. They have been a life saver so many times!

    Here's a link to the needlequote I did, in case you would rather see it than just hear about snowmen. :)

  16. We love going to the zoo and looking at the lights. They are amazing!

  17. Right now the memorable holiday quote is my daughter saying Ït's Almost Christmas!" So so cute.

  23. Never heard of Sister Schubert's brand of rolls. I'm from the Midwest and I don't usually buy rolls at all. I make them! Where do you get them??

    1. Homemade rolls are fabulous! But when you need a shortcut, Sister Schubert's are the BEST!! You can buy them in the freezer section at Walmart. I'm not sure what other Midwestern grocery stores carry them. Thank you so much for stopping by The Kitchen is My Playground!

  24. Do you have to let the casserole come to room temperature before you put it in the oven?

    1. Hi, Patricia! No, there's no need to bring the casserole to room temperature before putting it in the oven. Enjoy!

  25. This is fabulous! I love it. Pinned and tweeted. Thanks for being a part of our party! I hope you stop by on Monday at 7 pm. We love to party with you. Merry Christmas! Lou Lou Girls

  27. True story ... if I don't have Sister Schubert's rolls for any of our holiday dinners, my son gets upset. I don't make that mistake any more! Ha!
