My family eats a ton of cereal. I admit that in the morning, during the week, we don’t really have the time to make breakfast for the family. With 5 littles I’m usually running around making sure homework is gathered, kids are clothed and a baby is nursed. I wish it wasn’t that way and I’m sure one day things will be less crazy, but in the meantime, we’ll be enjoying our cereal every week day.
Fortunately, we have a little bit more time on the weekends (thank heavens for the weekends, right?!) It’s on these days that we usually try to make breakfast a little more special than the typical Lucky Charms or Cheerios. 😉 We have all sorts of delicious breakfast recipes that we have come to love, and one of those are these Cinnamon Cream Cheese Roll-Ups. They are a super simple and quick treat that are filled with cream cheese and covered in a crunchy Cinnamon and Sugar crust. We usually have all the ingredients on hand too, which is nice. Even the kids like to get in the kitchen and help me make them (they’re really that easy!)
If you’re looking to try a new breakfast treat then I highly recommend this one. They’re best served warm but can be eaten at any temp. No matter when you eat them, I can promise you that they won’t last long. 😉
