If you’re looking for Easy Breakfast Ideas, then you have come to the right place! This Apple Cinnamon Roll Breakfast Cobbler takes advantage of refrigerated dough for a warm, gooey, perfectly-spiced dish that will bring your family together around the breakfast table.
Weekends are a special time in our house. During the week, my husband works long hours and I’m busy running in all directions with the three little kids. By the time Saturday or Sunday morning rolls around, we’re ready for a slower pace and a more relaxed morning meal. That’s when I make an added effort to prepare a breakfast that I know my family will love so that we can linger just a little bit longer around the table. My only requirement? That morning meal better be quick and simple to pull together!
On a recent Saturday morning, Spence and I headed off to do some grocery shopping at Walmart while the older two boys took advantage of some quality time with Dad at home. It was a full-on Lego Building Session!
At Walmart, Spence and I picked up a variety of groceries for the week, as well as some ingredients for a special Sunday morning brunch.
I had a tasty recipe in mind and it only required a couple of extra items in my shopping cart. In the refrigerated section at the back of the store, we grabbed a large container of Florida orange juice (the best!), as well as a can of Pepperidge Farm Apple Sweet Rolls. The orange juice was in the refrigerators near other juices and milk,
while the sweet rolls were on the refrigerated shelves near the biscuits and butter.
With these ingredients in my kitchen and a few additional pantry staples, I pulled together an amazing Apple Cinnamon Roll Breakfast Cobbler on Sunday morning in just a matter of minutes!
I started by peeling and slicing two large Granny Smith apples (my mom taught me from an early age that these apples are always the best for baking)!
I placed the sliced apples in a large bowl and tossed them together with the lemon juice, cinnamon, nutmeg, sugar, flour, and salt. It’s a classic combination for baked apples or homemade apple pie filling…and it’s so darn simple!
Then I just spread the apples in a baking dish and topped them with the uncooked Pepperidge Farm Apple Sweet Rolls.
The cobbler baked in the oven for about 30 minutes while I set the table, poured some Florida orange juice for the crew, and got the kids dressed!
Then, just a drizzle of icing on top of the warm cinnamon sweet rolls and my cobbler was ready to serve!
Seriously. Is there anything better than a warm, gooey cinnamon roll on a lazy Sunday morning? How about a warm, gooey cinnamon roll that is nestled in a bed of baked, spiced apples…and that only took minutes to prepare?!
Served with some Florida orange juice, I had a very happy crew. Something so easy can truly set the tone for the rest of the day!
