Cinnamon Roll Waffles? Heck, yes.

Simply pop open a can of refrigerated cinnamon rolls, “smush” them out a bit with your fingers, then slap those babies your waffle maker.  Within minutes, you’ll be enjoying waffles that you can top with icing, crumbled bacon, and chopped toffee – super decadent. 

Are you in need of something a little bit snazzy for an upcoming weekend breakfast or brunch?  When I made these Cinnamon Roll Waffles for a holiday girls brunch, my friends just went crazy.  Their eyes nearly glazed over when they saw me sprinkling their waffles with bacon and toffee – it was so much fun to make them feel special.  I also served up these Black Forest Ham and Egg Cups because they are an all-kinds-of-wonderful breakfast treat, too.  (And they look like you’ve worked all day when in reality they take minutes!) If you have an Instant Pot, you might really enjoy making Homemade Yogurt for your friends, too….it’s soooooo easy.

Ingredients

  • 1 can Pillsbury Grands Refrigerated Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese Icing

Icing for Cinnamon Roll Waffles

  • 1 packet icing from the can of refrigerated cinnamon rolls
  • crumbled, cooked bacon, for topping the waffles
  • toffee bits, for topping waffles (or finely chop up a Score or Heath candy bar)

Instructions

  • Heat a waffle iron as per the waffle iron instructions. 
  • Remove cinnamon rolls from the can. Cut each one into quarters, then shape each quarter into a round cinnamon roll shape.
  • Lightly spray the preheated waffle iron with nonstick spray.  Place mini cinnamon rolls onto the prepared waffle maker, spacing them 2" - 3" apart from each other, fitting 2-3 roll portions at a time onto the waffle maker, as room allows.  
  • Close waffle maker and cook the cinnamon rolls for 2-3 minutes or until lightly browned and cooked throughout; carefully remove each one to a cooling rack.  Repeat with remaining cinnamon rolls.  
  • To serve, drizzle the icing over the warm cinnamon roll waffles, then top with bacon and toffee; serve at once.
