Having overnight guests can leave you wondering what to serve the next morning that is easy, quick, and allows for time to linger over a cup of coffee and chat rather than cleaning the kitchen.

Fall is usually the time of year we get house guests, and although I do love making breakfast from scratch, sometimes I cheat by using premade cinnamon rolls, presented in a homemade way.  Using parchment squares tucked into individual ramekins comes off like I spent the morning carefully making dough from scratch, but it’s really all in the presentation. Plus, everyone loves an individual treat.

The best part of the whole thing? There’s no cleaning a pan with sticky icing.  Just pop out the parchment and run them through the dishwasher.

I hope you’ll use my little trick, either with something you’ve made or something store-bought!  Enjoy!

  • That is such a great idea. It makes it look like you put so much thought and effort into the breakfast.

  • Just wanted to pop in (I’m a google reader subscriber) to tell you how much I enjoy your blog. You have SO MANY great ideas and do an amazing job presenting them in a sweet and simple way.

    Keep up the lovely work 🙂

  • Such a brilliant idea for when guests visit–I can’t wait to try it!

  • These look delish and so pretty!

  • Simple but clever idea, Erin! It’s always good to make guests feel welcome and cared for, so this is ideal.

  • Love this! Eric and I entertain frequent overnight guests with all of my family being from out of town, this is such a cute idea that I will definitely be stealing!

  • Love this idea, Erin! I always think that presenting something homemade means it has to entirely be made from scratch, but the way you packaged this ‘cheat treat’ is just adorable. I’m trying this next time I have guests 😉

  • i am OBSESSED! love everything about this and this is right up my entertaining alley.

  • LOVE it! Need overnight guests soon…

  • I love it, thanks for sharing!

  • Great trick! I love making cinnamon whirls the night before and presenting them for guests’ breakfasts! I adore this though, because they inevitably look great when all together inside the tin, but a little bit rubbish when I turf them out onto plates! Will definitely use this!

  • ADORE this idea! You are always so spot on. I’m a huge fan of primping up store bought goodies and presenting them in a much nicer way. And less cleanup? Everyone is happy!

  • Mmmmm
    Will have to try this!

  • This looks so lovely and tempting, great idea! I might have to do this even without guests – what a fab start to a weekend morning. Andrea
