You can pull together a sweet, indulgent breakfast casserole in a matter of minutes with the help of refrigerated crescent roll dough. Topped with crunchy candied pecans and oozing with gooey caramel filling, this Praline Crescent Roll Casserole is a special brunch recipe that your family and friends will adore!
In my mind, there’s nothing better than a tried-and-true family recipe that dates back to our childhood and reminds us of the comforts of home. So imagine my excitement when my mom was recently cleaning out her files and came across her entire recipe collection – complete with handwritten recipe cards from her friends, her sister, her godmother, and various acquaintances from the past 40 years! It’s like a goldmine of inspiration for a food blogger and recipe developer like myself! Plus, I just love the nostalgia of sifting through these retro recipes, some that make me laugh, some that make me smile with fond memories, and others that make me wonder why she ever bothered to save them!
Today’s little gem is one of my mom’s long-lost recipes. She called it “Caramel Crescent Rolls,” but I changed the name slightly because I thought that Praline Crescent Roll Casserole just described the dish a little bit better. Sure, there’s some ooey, gooey, delicious caramel tucked in the crevices between each little roll; however, the crispy, candied pecan crust that forms as the dish bakes is just as special! It’s the combination of the praline topping and the oozing caramel inside that really creates a drool-worthy treat.
