Orange Breakfast Bake

Suzanne Marzano


I made up this recipe because I had leftover orange danish rolls from a tube and forgot about them for about 10 days. (I forgot they were in the fridge.) This is a recipe that can be played with and used with any type of leftover sweet rolls. Make sure rolls are at least 1 week old and keep frosting on. My husband likes it with a little syrup over it. Serve with fresh fruit it makes a great brunch.

This is a great breakfast dish. We did use the orange cinnamon rolls and they added great flavor. But, in a pinch, you could use any leftover rolls that you have. You'll start your day off right when you dig into this recipe! The Test Kitchen
