While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.

Craving a warm, bready breakfast? You're in luck - February 21 is National Sticky Bun Day.

Do you know the difference between a sticky bun and a cinnamon roll? The two pastries are similar in that they typically have cinnamon, sugar, nuts and sometimes raisins rolled between concentric circles of yeasty dough, but the major difference is that sticky buns are baked in a brown sugar glaze.

The sugary goo is put in the bottom of a baking pan and then the rounds of dough are placed on top. When the buns are done baking, the pan is inverted and the syrup becomes a sticky sauce over the buns. This is different from cinnamon rolls, which are glazed with vanilla or cream cheese icing after they come out of the oven.

The pull-apart goodness is sure to please any crowd - for breakfast or dessert!
