For the Cinnamon Roll Casserole:

  • 2 cans (12.4 ounces each) refrigerated cinnamon rolls (with icing)
  • 2 cups diced apples (peeled and cored)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the Icing:

  • Reserved icing from the cinnamon roll cans


Prepare the Crock-Pot:

  1. Start by greasing the inside of your Crock-Pot slow cooker to prevent sticking.

Create the Cinnamon Roll Layers: 2. Open the cans of refrigerated cinnamon rolls and set aside the icing for later use.

  1. Cut each cinnamon roll into quarters.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the diced apples, granulated sugar, ground cinnamon, and ground nutmeg. Toss to coat the apples evenly with the sugar and spices.
  3. Place a layer of cinnamon roll quarters at the bottom of the greased Crock-Pot.
  4. Add a layer of the apple mixture on top of the cinnamon rolls.
  5. Continue layering with the remaining cinnamon roll quarters and apples, ending with a layer of cinnamon rolls on top.

Prepare the Egg Mixture: 8. In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, and vanilla extract until well combined.

  1. Pour the egg mixture evenly over the layers of cinnamon rolls and apples in the Crock-Pot.

Cook the Casserole: 10. Cover the Crock-Pot with its lid and cook on low for 2.5 to 3 hours, or until the center is set and the edges are golden brown.

Add the Icing: 11. When the casserole is almost done, warm the reserved icing from the cinnamon roll cans. This can be done in the microwave for a few seconds.

  1. Drizzle the warm icing over the top of the cooked casserole.

Serve and Enjoy: 13. Spoon out generous servings of the warm and gooey Crock-Pot Apple Cinnamon Roll Casserole.

  1. Enjoy it as is or with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream for an extra treat.

Cook’s Notes:

  • You can use your favorite variety of refrigerated cinnamon rolls, such as regular, caramel, or pumpkin-spiced, to customize the flavor of your casserole.
  • If you prefer a crispier top, you can transfer the casserole to a preheated oven at 350°F (175°C) for about 10-15 minutes after it’s done cooking in the Crock-Pot.
  • Experiment with different types of apples to find your preferred flavor and sweetness level for the casserole.
  • Leftovers can be refrigerated and reheated in the microwave for a quick and indulgent breakfast on busy mornings.

 Crock-Pot Apple Cinnamon Roll Casserole is a warm and gooey breakfast delight that captures the essence of comfort and indulgence. With layers of cinnamon rolls, sweet apples, and a drizzle of icing, it’s a treat that’s perfect for cozy mornings and special occasions alike.
