Cinnamon Rolls Breakfast CasseroleIn my family, breakfast time is honestly the most chaotic time of the day. I have to get three kids dressed, myself ready for work, and breakfast on the table. It is not an easy feat to accomplish all of this so I am always on the hunt for some easy breakfast ideas. Thinking about breakfast, makes me reminisce about when my sister and I were kids, and what we enjoyed eating around the breakfast table. I specifically remember every Saturday morning, my mother serving us warm cinnamon rolls, Florida Orange Juice, fruit, and eggs for a complete and very special breakfast occasion. Those Saturday morning breakfasts will forever be engrained in my head and heart. Now that I have kids and want to recreate some special breakfast memories,  I need to turn to some food staples that make a breakfast complete such as fresh fruit, Pepperidge Farm Sweet Rolls, and Florida Orange Juice. It is imperative that we all sit down on the weekends and eat breakfast as a family, and these will definitely get me started on the right path.DSC_0429

Since we were expecting a big snowstorm this weekend, I wanted to incorporate my love of sweet rolls into a delicious casserole my family would eat. I wanted to have a casserole ready so they could have breakfast for a few days. Pair my casserole with some OJ, and we would be all set for breakfast for the week!Cinnamon Rolls Breakfast Casserole

My first step in making my casserole, was to head to Walmart and buy some Pepperidge Farm Cinnamon Rolls and 100 percent Florida Orange Juice. I readily found the cinnamon rolls in the refrigerator section next to the yogurt and puddings. For the orange juice, I turn to our favorite Tropicana which is a Florida OJ that has been in my life ever since I was a small child.  Be sure to look at your local Walmart because there will be a coupon  at the orange juice shelf for $1 off when you buy both 100% Florida OJ and Pepperidge Farm Sweet Rolls. Don’t miss out on that coupon! After getting all my ingredients for my casserole, I headed home and preparation for my  delicious breakfast began.unnamed-1

Since I had a lot of Tropicana left over, I figured why not make myself a mimosa to enjoy while the kids are sledding over the next few days. I love mimosas but I decided to really step it up a bit, by trying to create a Champagne Mimosa Smoothie. I was not sure how it would come out, since I made up the recipe, but let me tell you that if you like OJ and champagne, this is the drink for you!
