Fresh blueberries rank among the best fruits that you can eat. One little cup has only 80 calories and supplies 25% of the daily recommended allowance of Vitamin C.

Blueberries also have fiber and are a source of manganese. You could say that blueberries are a little fruity powerhouse.

For this breakfast treat, blueberries are combined with a luscious, cream cheese, and lemon mixture. For the dough portion of the recipe, all you need is one package of Pillsbury™ Grands!™ refrigerated cinnamon rolls with icing.

Fresh blueberries are rinsed in a yellow colander.

  • Pillsbury™ Grands!™ refrigerated cinnamon rolls with icing
  • 8-ounces cream cheesesoftened

How To Make Blueberry Breakfast Casserole

Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and spray a 9×13 baking dish with nonstick spray.

In a large microwavable bowl, microwave cream cheese and powdered sugar uncovered on High for 30 to 60 seconds, stirring after 30 seconds, until softened. Stir until smooth. Stir in blueberries and 1 tablespoon of lemon zest.

Separate the dough into 5 rolls. (The icing needs to be placed back in the refrigerator.) Cut each roll into 6 pieces.

Next, add the biscuit pieces to the cream cheese mixture, and spoon it into the prepared baking dish.

Baking Time

Pop the casserole in the oven for approximately 35 minutes.

Bake until the dish is bubbling around the edges and the dough is baked through in the center. Allow the casserole to cool for 10 minutes.

Transfer the reserved icing to a small bowl and stir in the remaining 1 tablespoon of lemon zest. Spoon the icing mixture into a small resealable food-storage plastic bag and partially seal the bag. Cut off a tiny corner of the bag and squeeze the bag to pipe the icing over the top of the breakfast bake.

    This was an Amazing recipe… However, I highly recommend that you use two packages of Grands instead of one. It spreads out and the Grands do not cover the whole top of a 9 x 13. Maybe use a bunt pan.?. The flavor was yummy.

    1. I imagine that it could. I am not sure how long and what temperature would be best.

      I have made muffins using Grands Cinnamon rolls, but they did not have cream cheese. They bake for 15 – 17 minutes at 350 degrees.

      I would guess that if you were to convert this recipe to a muffin recipe that you should bake for at least 20 minutes and then check for doneness.

      If you make them, please let me know how they turned out and how long you baked them. Thanks!

    1. Each can of Grands cinnamon rolls has icing inside it. When making this recipe, you set the icing aside until Step 4 of the recipe. My apologies if the directions seem confusing.

  2. Just made this. Oh my gosh!! Truly delicious. After the initial taste we added a little ice cream. 😏. Really good. Adding this to the Christmas breakfast menu.
