The nice thing about not hosting Thanksgiving dinner is that I'm still in the mood to cook breakfast in the morning! It is a cinch to toss the pan of cinnamon buns in the oven in the morning. They are a favorite for Thanksgiving and Christmas breakfasts.
LAND OF NOD CINNAMON BUNS
20 unbaked frozen dinner rolls
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup instant vanilla pudding mix
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
3/4 cup raisins or chocolate chips if you are really feeling sinful (optional, of course)
1/3 cup butter, melted
Lightly grease a 10 inch Bundt cake pan. Place frozen rolls into pan and sprinkle with brown sugar, pudding mix, ground cinnamon and raisins. Pour melted butter over rolls. Cover with a clean, damp cloth and leave overnight at room temperature. In the morning, preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Bake rolls for 25 minutes, until golden brown. Turn rolls out onto a serving plate and serve warm.
*Heads up: For anyone interested, I finally posted a picture of the bread and jello salad with the recipes below.
