Host, Andrew “Kappy” Kaplan and his twins Leo + Ella share a SUPER YUMMY breakfast dish (you can also serve as dessert - shhh, we won’t tell) made with leftover dinner rolls AND leftover cranberry sauce from Thanksgiving.

(Leftover) Dinner Roll French Toast Cups with Cranberry-Maple Glaze

Serves 4-6

3 eggs

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons brown sugar

2 cups heavy cream, half & half or milk

8 leftover soft dinner rolls (such as Martin’s Sweet Dinner Potato Rolls), cut or torn into approximately ½” size pieces (about 4-5 cups)

2 tablespoons white chocolate chips, optional

1/3 - 1/2 cup leftover cranberry sauce

2 tablespoons maple syrup

1/4 cup toasted pecans, chopped, for garnish, optional

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat a 12-cup muffin pan with cooking spray.

#1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk the eggs, vanilla, cinnamon, salt, and brown sugar. Add the heavy cream and continue whisking until everything is combined.

#2. Add the cut or torn bread to the bowl and gently mix well until all of the bread is coated in the egg mixture. Let sit for around 30 minutes before baking, giving a gentle stir halfway through.

#3. Using a 1/4 cup measurer, divide the mixture evenly among the 12 muffin cups. Divide the white chocolate chips evenly (if using) and bake for about 20 minutes, or until golden brown and cooked through.

#4. While they are baking, in a small bowl, mix the cranberry sauce and maple syrup together.

#5. When the French Toast Cups are cooked, remove the muffin pan from the oven and serve with the cranberry-maple glaze and chopped pecans (if using).
