You might be familiar with pull-apart bread made with refrigerated biscuit but how about using hot dog or dinner rolls for this recipe? The whole idea about this happens when I'd few packages of hot dog rolls untouched for a few days in my pantry.

For perfect result, do not immerse the bread cubes too long in the milk, just moistened them, lightly coat with sugar  and cut the hot dog roll into bigger chunk about  1 1/4  inch..

It is incredibly easy and cost effective, made with love. Just watch it disappears quickly right after your eyes!.
