Canned cinnamon rolls are a staple at our house because they are quick and easy to make, everyone likes them, and you don't need 100 ingredients in order to make them. In just a matter of minutes (10-15 to be exact) you can have breakfast on the table!
I'll admit that I asked myself, "why are you making canned biscuits in the Ninja Foodi when they are so quick to make in the oven?" But, I did it anyway. The cinnamon rolls turn out just as they do in the regular oven, but there was no need to pre-heat the oven, the cooking time was faster and the big oven didn't heat up my whole kitchen.
Tips for making Ninja Foodi Cinnamon Rolls
No. If you follow the instructions that are on the can, your cinnamon rolls will burn on the top and be raw on the bottom.
A good rule of thumb when using the bake/roast function is to reduce the temperature by 25 degrees and keep the cooking time the same as it says on the package. I found this to be the case with the temperature but not the timing. Even with the reduced temperature, the canned cinnamon rolls cooked quicker than the recommended time on the package. So, I would recommend keeping an eye on your cinnamon rolls and checking them to see if they are finished cooking after about 10 minutes.
You can use any pan that will fit into the Ninja Foodi main pot easily, with room for air to go around it. I used this Ninja pan and it fit PERFECTLY! It's like it was made for cinnamon rolls. The can of 8 biscuits fit perfectly and the pan fit perfectly into the main pot.
You can use silicone mits to get the pan in and out of the main pot but I have found that using a silicone sling like this, makes it 10000% easier to get just about anything in and out of the pot. If you don't have a sling, you can make one out of foil by using a piece of foil that is about 20 inches long and folding it into thirds so that you end up with a piece of foil that is 20 inches long by about 4 inches wide. Simply place it under the pan and use the foil as handles to put the pan in and out of the main pot.
