Quick Breakfast Orange Rolls

This sweet and easy recipe requires no dough making and whips up quickly.

Course Breakfast
Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes


  • 1 can French Bread Refrigerated Dough
  • 4 oz Cream Cheese softened
  • 1/4 cup Light Brown Sugar
  • 1 1/2 Tbl Orange Zest
  • 1 Tbl Butter melted
  • 2 Tbl Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Powdered Sugar
  • 2 Tbl Orange Juice


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and spray cooking spray in the pan.

  2. Combine the cream cheese, brown sugar, and orange zest and mix together until smooth. (I use the small side of a cheese grater to grate the orange peel into zest.

  3. Unroll the french bread on a floured surface and spread the cream cheese mixture on the dough leaving a 1/2 inch border around the edges.

  4. Sprinkle the sugar over the cream cheese mixture.

  5. Roll back up starting with a short edge.

  6. Cut in 1 1/4 inch sections and add to the pan cut side down. This should make 8 rolls.

  7. Brush the melted butter over the rolls.

  8. Bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for 10 minutes.

  9. Combine the powdered sugar and orange juice. Using a fork let the icing fall from the fork to the rolls.

See! It’s so easy and quick and will be a huge hit for your holidays.

We would love for you to pin it for us.
