  • 1 package of 12 King’s Hawaiian Original Hawaiian Sweet Dinner Rolls or other simila dinner roll
  • 1 large egg beaten
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter melted
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar packed


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a 9x9 or 9x13-inch pan with cooking spray.
  • Mix cinnamon and granulated sugar in a small bowl. Cut each dinner roll into 4-6 pieces. Place in a large bowl. Pour egg over the bread and toss with your hands. Pour cinnamon sugar over egg/bread mixture and toss with your hands. Place bread mixture in the prepared pan.
  • Sprinkle the chopped walnuts over the bread mixture.
  • Stir melted butter and brown sugar together and pour evenly over the mixture in the pan. Bake for 15 minutes. Cool slightly in pan.
  • When it comes out of the oven, there will be a buttery-sugary mixture at the bottom. You can either stir the bread to incorporate it or invert the baking dish over a serving platter to serve the rolls (all of the ooey-gooeyness from the bottom will be like a topping).
