Okay, okay… I know it sounds like a dessert instead of a breakfast item. But I AM at the FANCY FOOD SHOW, after all. So I have to fancify my food for the world to taste the goodness of Kansas! And in this case, the world is getting the sweet crunch of Tonja’s Toffee, straight from Modoc, Kansas. As for the cinnamon roll waffles? Pop open your favorite can of refrigerated cinnamon rolls. Put them in your waffle maker. Wah-la! Fancy breakfast (or dessert) that is super easy and yummy.
Glazed Cinnamon Roll Waffles with Toffee & Bacon
1 can Pillsbury Grands Refrigerated Cinnamon Rolls with
Cream Cheese Icing
oil, for brushing rolls
1 cup powdered sugar
3 Tbs. milk
1 tsp. vanilla
pinch of kosher salt
4 sliced bacon, cooked until crispy, crumbled
1/3 – ½ cup Tonja’s Toffee, finely chopped
Heat waffle iron; spray with nonstick spray.
Remove rolls from can and cut into quarters; gently shape each quarter into a cinnamon roll shape. Lightly brush each mini cinnamon roll with oil on all sides. Reserve cream cheese icing from the cinnamon roll can.
Place mini cinnamon rolls onto the waffle maker, spacing pieces 2” – 3” apart from each other, fitting 2-3 rolls at a time onto waffle maker.
Close lid and bake mini cinnamon rolls for 2-3 minutes or until lightly browned and cooked through; carefully remove to a cooling rack. Repeat with remaining mini cinnamon rolls.
Make icing by combining reserved cream cheese icing with powdered sugar, milk, vanilla, and salt until glaze is smooth.
To serve, drizzle glaze over warm cinnamon roll bites, then top with bacon and toffee.
