The Day-Old Cinnamon Roll Makeover…

I love makeovers… mostly home decor makeovers. Today I did a makeover that was so inspiring I had to share. It all had to do with a day-old cinnamon roll I found in my fridge. I made them days ago. No longer gooey and fresh, I decided to give this lonely roll a culinary makeover.

The 1 day-old cinnamon roll. It was so lonely and needed some love so I obliged.

I sliced the cinnamon roll horizontally into three slices. Slicing is easier when the roll is cold from the fridge- use a serrated bread knife for easier cutting.

Make a soaking mixture of 2 eggs, dash of cinnamon and 1/2 cup of high-fat milk. mix well with a fork until mixed and foamy.

Soak each slick in the egg bath. Soak 1 minute each side. The slice will become slightly soft so use a fork to remove.

Heat the pan with 1 tablespoon of butter. Carefully lay the 3 slices into the hot pan. Cook 2 minutes on each side.

The slices are now less fragile as the egg mixture helps to bind the swirled bread together; and the heat make that beautiful goo start running again- just like the fresh cinnamon bun!

Drizzle with a bit of maple syrup and sprinkle with some icing sugar for a sweet presentation.
