We did breakfast/brunch for Morgan's party and it was good. So good, that I got lots of recipe requests. Here are the recipes for the Cinnamon French Toast Bake and the Impossibly Easy Breakfast Bake. I am going to post them how I actually made them since there were a few tweaks.
Click on the name of the recipe above to get the original. I forgot to take pictures, so I'm borrowing recipe photos from the Pillsbury and Betty Crocker Websites.
French Toast Bake
1/4 cup butter or margarine
2 (12.4-oz.) cans Pillsbury® Refrigerated Cinnamon Rolls with Icing
1/2 cup evaporated milk
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 cup maple syrup
Icing from cinnamon rolls
1. Heat oven to 375°F. Grease a 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish with the butter. Separate both cans of dough into 16 rolls; set icing aside. Cut each roll into 8 pieces; place pieces over butter in dish.
2. In medium bowl, beat eggs. Beat in milk, cinnamon and vanilla until well blended; gently pour over roll pieces. Drizzle with 1/2 cup syrup.
3. Bake at 375°F. for 20 to 28 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 15 minutes. Meanwhile, remove covers from icing; microwave on Medium (50%) for 10 to 15 seconds or until drizzling consistency.
4. Drizzle icing over top; sprinkle with powdered sugar. Serve with additional maple syrup if desired.
Impossibly Easy Breakfast Bake
2 packages (12 oz each) bulk pork sausage or chop up some link sausage
1 medium bell pepper, chopped (1 cup)
1 medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
3 cups frozen hash brown potatoes
2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese (8 oz)
1 cup Original Bisquick® mix
2 cups milk
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1. Heat oven to 400ºF. Grease rectangular baking dish, 13x9x2 inches. Cook sausage, bell pepper and onion in 10-inch skillet over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until sausage is no longer pink; drain. Stir together sausage mixture, potatoes and 1 1/2 cups of the cheese in baking dish.
2. Stir Bisquick mix, milk, pepper and eggs until blended. Pour into baking dish.
3. Bake uncovered 40 to 45 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake 1 to 2 minutes longer or just until cheese is melted. Cool 5 minutes.
I just used some link Turkey sausage that I cut up into chunks and followed the rest of the recipe as written.
