Improv Cooking Challenge: Strawberries & Cream French Toast Bake

May 17, 2012

This month's Improv Cooking Challenge was so fun! Strawberries and cream (of some kind) immediately sounded yummy to me. I knew I wanted to try these ingredients in a new breakfast dish and this one was a total winner! We enjoyed this for Mother's Day breakfast and I loved it. I could easily see changing up the fruit to whatever is in season!

Strawberries & Cream French Toast Bake
from What's Cooking Love

1 can refrigerated cinnamon rolls with cream cheese icing
1 cup strawberries, smashed with a fork
3 eggs
1/4 cup heaving whipping cream
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla

Open and separate cinnamon rolls, cut into 8 equal triangles. Place cinnamon roll pieces into a greased 9x9 baking dish. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, whipping cream, cinnamon, and vanilla. Stir in strawberries. Pour egg mixture over cinnamon rolls in dish. Bake at 375 for 25-30 minutes or until eggs are set and rolls are golden. Microwave cream cheese icing for about 20 seconds and drizzle over french toast. Serve warm!

Once again, a big thanks goes out to Frugal Antics of a Harried Homemaker for hosting our awesome challenge!!
