Crock Pot Cinnamon Roll Casserole


Say hello to Crock Pot Cinnamon Roll Casserole. AKA the most delicious way to eat cinnamon rolls ever. I first saw this recipe on Pinterest several years ago. It was a pin from my friend Cris’s blog Recipes That Crock. It’s originally a recipe from Gooseberry Patch’s Slow Cooker Christmas Favorites.

Crock Pot Cinnamon Roll Casserole gets a little bit crispy around the edges but stays a little gooey in the center so you get the best of both worlds.

As a child my brother’s favorite breakfast was Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls. My mother would make them for him all the time.

This recipe is so easy to make using those same refrigerated cinnamon rolls. Each unbaked cinnamon roll is cut in quarters and mixed with an egg, maple syrup, and half-and-half mixture. Almost like a cinnamon roll bread pudding.

I adapted the recipe somewhat, using one less egg, a little more nutmeg, half-and-half instead of whipping cream, and I added a few pecans.

The result is a super delicious breakfast casserole that is perfect for the holidays. Or any day.  🙂

  1. After the 3 hrs too was still gooey so I put it in the Oven for 10 mins on 350 and it worked ! Added a top layer of icing and helped

  2. I made this more than once in my household. It doesn’t last very long. I have also made this for my Dialysis Nurses and a few fellow patients. It was a hit. I will say that I have tried the Pillsbury Brand as well as the no name brand. I will always stick with the Pillsbury Brand. It turns out better. I only used 2 eggs instead of 3 that it calls for in the recipe. As for the icing, we love icing on our cinnamon rolls so I make “The Perfect Cinnamon Roll Icing Recipe” that you will find at Thank you Christin for this amazing recipe

  3. Is it supposed to have a gooey, chewy texture? The edges were crisped and cooked but the middle tasted like they weren’t cooked at all.

  4. This is a good recipe, I adapted it by adding raisins plumped in water before baking. My mother loves the old Pillsbury cinnamon raisin rolls that are no longer available so this brought back memories for her.

  5. Not so good. I was asked to make this and will not make again. Refrigerator cinnamon rolls are not good to begin with and this doesn’t change a thing.

  6. I made this for brunch with the kids and grandkids this morning. It was fantastic! Next time I will try adding the pecans. Big kids and little kids all enjoyed it!

  7. I had a recipe but can’t find it now. It was crockpot bread pudding made with day old cinnamon rolls. I would really like to know if anyone has it!! Thank You

  8. We tried doing a similar recipe and the egg just ended up separating and being very… eggy… what’s the trick? And did you add extra icing than what it comes with??

      1. I had the same issue where the egg separated. I whisked it well as you stated above and it did not help. Cinnamonrolls did not absorb any of the egg mixture.

  9. Yes, I just want to know if you’ve ever reheated this recipe via microwave and if it still tastes good?

  10. Hey! My question is, is this good heated back up? We have life groups for church and I’d like to try to .and two batches of this, but I’m so busy in the mornings on Sundays and our groups starts at a certain time that I’m sure I wouldn’t have time to do it in the morning. Just not sure if it’s good reheated!
