Cinnamon Roll French Toast

So I lived in Guaymas Mexico for a couple of years after Owen was born, and in the little tourist town right next to us was an internet cafe/restaurant called Evie's that had really good, Americanized food.  They had cinnamon roll french toast, which at first I thought was going to be french toast with a cinnamon swirl in/on it.  When it came out, it was actually cinnamon rolls made into french toast.  I don't have any reason to go back down to Guaymas or San Carlos, except for the awesome Sonoran food, but I decided I needed to make this cinnamon roll french toast for myself.  I used the Pioneer Woman's cinnamon rolls, so delicious already, and then cut them into slices and soaked them in basic french toast batter.  Cook for a few minutes on both sides, and you have a delicious, indulgent breakfast treat.  Each slice of cinnamon roll, the way I made them, was 250 calories, so gulp, a lot, but so good :).  Here's what I did:

6 small cinnamon rolls, cut in half, if using larger cinnamon rolls, cut into thirds and use four
2 T butter, melted
1 egg, beaten
3/4 c milk
2 t vanilla
1/3 c flour
dash of salt

Beat the butter in to the beaten egg, then add the rest of the ingredients in order.  Soak the cinnamon roll slices in the batter on both sides, then cook on the prepared griddle until toasted.  Serve with syrup if you want it extra sweet, or just eat it as is, they are delicious!
