A Chic Idea for Breakfast Entertaining

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!

    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 :)

    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 😉

    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!
