Cinnamon Roll Casserole

Everyone needs a go to breakfast dish if you have guest over or if you are invited to a brunch! Well this one is certainly a crowd pleaser and its so easy! They will think you slaved in the kitchen all morning! (

2 cans refrigerated cinnamon rolls with icing
4 eggs
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
2 tsp ground cinnamon (I am heavy handed on the cinnamon! We love it so I add more)
2 tsp vanilla
1 cup chopped pecans (optional)
1/4 cup maple syrup
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease a 9x13 dish.
Separate both cans of dough, setting icing aside. Cut each roll into 8 pieces (I cut mine like a mini pizza.) Place the pieces into the greased dish.
In a medium bowl, beat eggs. Beat into the heavy cream (make sure they are well blended or they will bake funny into the casserole). Add cinnamon and vanilla until well blended. Pour the mix evenly over the cinnamon roll pieces.

If you choose to use pecans (we don't and its still delicious) sprinkle them over the rolls. Drizzle with the maple syrup. 
Bake for 20-28 minutes or until golden brown. 
Cool for 10-15 minutes.
Remove covers from icing and microwave 10-15 seconds or until thin enough to drizzle.
Drizzle icing over the casserole. I make this for our Christmas breakfast. Its SO yummy! Enjoy!
