My office seems to have a potluck every other week and when they wanted to do one to celebrate the Holidays I though - breakfast! Yep, a breakfast potluck!
To be perfectly honest, it is the Husband's thing at work but I wasn't going to tell them that. He has training every few months and on the last day the guys do a breakfast potluck. His go to is a breakfast pizza but I wanted to do something easier. Of course, I hit up pinterest but really could not find anything I wanted to do that would be easy.
Hawaiian sweet rolls so I made french toast with them. They were a big hit and an idea was born... what if I used the whole package and baked them!
The night before the potluck I started to make the batter so it could marinate over night and of course, I was out of milk (I really need to shop better). I did have eggnog (go figure)! I was also out of vanilla but I had caramel sauce so in it went. Mixed it all together, covered it with foil and put it in the fridge overnight.
In the morning, I baked it and prayed it would taste alright. I made a second one for home and I am so glad I did because it was so seriously yummy I made it again for Christmas morning. I have yet to be able to get a picture of it whole but you can see it has been enjoyed.
