Easy Breakfast Pull-apart Orange Rolls

This is a favorite Christmas morning tradition at our house. These are great because they are easily put together the night before and then, in the morning you just bake them and enjoy them. I adapted this recipe from one that used cinnamon and sugar, but since I can't eat cinnamon, I came up with this orange roll version. I hope you enjoy it!

  This is what it looks like when you first put them in the pan with the orange sauce over the frozen rolls.
This is what it looks like in the morning when you wake up and they are risen to the top of the pan.

This is what they look like after baking, before being taken out of the pan.

This is the finished product: hot pull-apart orange rolls with very little effort!

Pull-apart Orange Rolls

24 frozen rolls (I like Rhodes)
3/4 c sugar
1 cube butter (melted)
1 TBSP fresh grated orange rind

Place the rolls in a bundt pan. Mix the remaining ingredients together and warm in the microwave until the sugar begins to dissolve. Pour over the frozen rolls and cover with foil or plastic wrap. Let rise for 8 hours (overnight) in cold oven. In the morning, remove from the oven, preheat to 350 degrees, remove foil and bake for 30 minutes on a lower rack in the oven. Let cool for about 5 minutes before turning out upside down onto a plate.

We make this every Christmas morning, but with biscuits. Next year I am going to make it with rolls. Yum!
