Back to school time can be a crazy one, and you might feel like you don’t have the time for a fancy breakfast or even a tasty one at that. Putting a hot breakfast or after school snack on the table might seem like a challenge during these busy months, but the truth is it doesn’t have to be that way. Take for instance these cinnamon nutmeg rolls, which are perfect for a quick morning breakfast or even an after school snack. Sweet yet savory, these cinnamon nutmeg rolls can be whipped up in minutes and are sure to be a family favorite.
And with Gay Lea Spreadables Butter, these can be ready in a jiffy without compromising on the taste! I used the Regular Gay Lea Spreadables and added in the required amount of cinnamon. Alternatively, you can also go with Cinnamon Brown Sugar Spreadables as well for this recipe even though adding brown sugar is not called on this one. But, It’s all about how you like it, right? I love the fact that Gay Lea’s Spreadables Butter takes traditional creamery butter and adds unsaturated canola oil to make it spreadable. This way we get to enjoy the delicious taste of butter right out of the fridge! Also, great to know that there are no preservatives in Gay Lea Spreadables and that it is a great source of Omega 3. Lots of good news there!
So have a look at our Cinnamon Nutmeg rolls recipe and find out how you can make a yummy batch 🙂
Cinnamon Nutmeg Rolls
Ingredients and supplies you will need
1 cup Regular Gay Lea Spreadables Butter
1 tablespoon of ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon of ground nutmeg
1 package of refrigerated crescent rolls
1. In a bowl, mix the soft and spreadable butter as well as the ground cinnamon and nutmeg. Mix well until all of the ingredients are blended.
2. Prepare your crescent rolls. Open them up and before rolling each one, apply a thin layer of the cinnamon, nutmeg, and butter spread. Then, roll up as you usually would. Add another layer of the mixture on top of the rolls prior to baking. You don’t want to go overboard just a thin layer will do the trick. You can always reserve some of the spread for dipping later when the rolls are done.
3. Place on a cookie sheet and bake according to package directions. In most cases this will be at 375 for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
4. If you wish you can reserve some of the sweetened butter mixture to top your cinnamon nutmeg rolls with when they come out of the oven. Or, you can serve them as is or with basic butter or even jelly. In any case, enjoy warm.
