Make your brunch affair sweet, savory and super adorable with these Cinnamon Roll Breakfast Sandwich Bites.


  • 1 (12.4 ounce) can regular size cinnamon rolls with icing (8 count)
  • 1 and 1/2 cups ground pork breakfast sausage (1 heaping teaspoon per bite)
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 4 soft scrambled eggs
  • 6 slices American cheese, each cut into 6 portions


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Let the cinnamon rolls set out at room temperature for 10 minutes to soften them a bit so they’re easier to reshape. Cut each cinnamon roll into four equal wedges. Reshape each wedge into a round. Place the mini cinnamon roll rounds on the prepared baking sheet, about 1-inch apart, and press down on each one to flatten it slightly.
  3. Bake the cinnamon rolls for about 12 minutes or until golden brown on the tops. Leave the baked cinnamon rolls on the sheet pan to assemble and reheat once filled.
  4. Meanwhile, scoop 1 heaping teaspoon portions of the ground sausage and press into mini sausage patties.
  5. Heat 1 tablespoon butter in a large skillet over medium heat until sizzling. Add the mini sausage patties and cook for 1-2 minutes on each side until sausage is cooked all the way through and golden brown on both sides. Remove sausage patties from the pan and keep warm in a 200°F oven until ready to assemble the breakfast sandwiches.
  6. Cook the soft scrambled eggs.
  7. Slice each cheese slice into 6 equal pieces, about 1.5 inches by 1 inch each. You will need 32 pieces of cheese for the bites.
  8. Slice each cinnamon roll in half, crosswise. Place about 1 teaspoon of scrambled eggs onto the bottom half of each cinnamon roll. Then place a sausage patty and a piece of cheese. Put the top of the cinnamon roll back on the sandwich.
  9. Place the sheet pan back in the oven for 3 minutes or until the cheese is just melted.
  10. Heat the cinnamon roll icing for 10 seconds in the microwave. Remove the sandwiches from the oven and brush the top of each bite with a little icing so it covers the top of the cinnamon roll and starts to drip down the sides.
  11. Serve warm with toothpicks inserted in them, if desired.
