For the topping:

1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup finely chopped walnuts (I used ground hazelnuts I had in the freezer)
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 tablespoons cold butter or margarine
For the drizzle: (optional)

1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 tablespoons of milk (more or less to get to a drizzling consistency)
For drizzle, combine the powdered sugar and milk. If too thick, add a few drops of additional milk at a time until it reaches drizzling consistency. Drizzles over the top of the cake and allow to sit until sugar solidifies.

Cinnabons Cinnamon Rolls


2 1/4 tsp active dry yeast
1 cup milk warm
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup margarine I used softened unsalted butter
1 tsp salt
2 eggs
4 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup brown sugar packed
3 tbsp cinnamon
1/3 cup margarine softened
Cream cheese icing
6 tbsp margarine I used unsalted butter
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup cream cheese
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/8 tsp salt
US Customary - Metric


For the rolls, dissolve the yeast in the warm milk in a large bowl. Let it sit for about 5 minutes. If the yeast is good, it will start to froth up. 
Add sugar, butter, salt, eggs, and flour to the bowl of a mixer and mix well.
Pour the milk/yeast mixture in the bowl and using the dough hook, mix well until well incorporated.
Place dough into an oiled bowl, cover and let rise in a warm place about 1 hour or until the dough has doubled in size.
Roll the dough out on a lightly floured surface, until it is approx 16 inches long by 12 inches wide. It should be approx 1/4 inch thick.
Preheat oven to 350 F degrees. Grease a 9x13 inch baking pan.
To make filling, combine the butter or margarine, brown sugar and cinnamon in a bowl.
Spread the mixture evenly over the surface of the dough. Alternatively you can spread the butter first on the dough and then the brown sugar and cinnamon mixture.
Working carefully, from the long edge, roll the dough down to the bottom edge. The roll should be about 18 inches in length. Cut the roll into 1 1/2 inch slices. You might find it easier if you use a piece of floss vs a knife.
Place the cut rolls in the prepared pan. Cover them with a damp towel. Let them rise again for another 30 minutes until they double in size.
Bake for 20 minutes or until light golden brown. Cooking time can vary greatly!
While the rolls are baking make the icing by mixing all ingredients and beat well with an electric mixer until fluffy.
When the rolls are done, spread generously with icing.

1 20-ounce package Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns
3 eggs
1/4 cup milk
1 cup shredded sharp Cheddar Cheese
1/4 cup fresh chopped chives, plus some for garnishing
Salt & pepper
Sour cream, for serving, if desired


Heat waffle iron on the medium-high setting. Spray each side generously with non-stick cooking spray or brush with melted butter.
In a medium-sized mixing bowl, whisk together eggs and milk. Stir in potatoes, cheese, chives and season with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.
Depending on the size of your waffle iron, scoop a layer of the potato mixture onto the surface (for the round waffle maker, I used about 1 cup of the mixture). Spread to about 1/2 inch from the edges and close the waffle iron. Cook for about 5 minutes, checking every few minutes to avoid burning. When the entire waffle is golden brown in color, carefully remove from the waffle iron with a fork or tongs.
*Tip: Turn your oven to the "warm" function and place finished waffles on a baking sheet in the oven to keep warm which the rest are cooking.
