Overnight Caramel Roll French Toast

Can’t decide what to serve your special Valentines for breakfast? No need choose. You can have the best of both worlds when you make this Overnight Caramel Roll French Toast.

Overnight Caramel Roll French Toast So let’s say that I know someone who has a pretty serious love affair with breakfast foods. She’s sensible in nearly every other aspect of her life – obeys traffic signals, never budges in line, goes to bed at a reasonable hour – but breakfast/brunch/pretty much any morning meal makes her loco. She wants ALL the breakfast foods, ALL the time. One day, this nameless, faceless breakfast-loving person decided to get crazy in the kitchen and combine two popular breakfast items – caramel rolls and french toast – into one.

The result?

Mind Blown.

Overnight Caramel Roll French Toast is the perfect extra little something to show your loved ones how much you care this Valentine’s Day. After all, what says love more than gooey caramel and breakfast in bed? (Actually, I don’t eat breakfast in bed because who wants crumbs in their bed?? But I digress…)

Meat and Cheese Stromboli (1 of 2)

Meat and Cheese Stromboli

Consider this Meat and Cheese Stromboli the way I happily justify feeding pizza to my family twice in one week. It’s true that stromboli is merely pizza in rolled up form, but somehow I feel better calling it by another name if we’ve already reached our takeout pizza quotient for the week. (No, I didn’t…

Cheesy Chile Chicken Dip

Nothing says party like a bag of chips and this warm Cheesy Chile Chicken Dip! I have no problem admitting that I watch the Super Bowl primarily for the ads and the halftime entertainment.
