Yummy Recipe Wednesday! (French Toast Roll-Ups)

Hello food lovers and welcome to another Yummy Recipe Wednesday. Where I work we designate one day each month as a “Food Day”, which is a bit like a pot-luck, to celebrate any birthdays or other milestones that the team members in our department might be having. Last week we had our August “Food Day” and one of the ladies I work with brought these delicious French Toast Roll-Ups which I bring you the recipe for today. There are so many different options for things that you can stuff inside these. You can do plain cream cheese, strawberry cream cheese, or any flavored cream cheese for that matter. You could also do something like plain cream cheese with fresh chopped strawberries or Nutella with chopped bananas. The possibilities are endless really. I imagine you could even make a savory version of these which is something I intend on trying out in the future. No matter what you stuff them with you can be certain that your friends, family, co-workers, or whoever you’re making these for will absolutely love them. This is definitely something you can’t go wrong with.

French Toast Roll-Ups

  • 8 slices White Sandwich Bread
  • Strawberry Cream Cheese (or other filling of choice)
  • 2 Eggs
  • 3 Tbsp Milk
  • 1/3 cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1 heaping tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • Butter

1. Trim the crust from the bread and flatten each slice with a rolling pin or other cylinder shaped object such as a drinking glass or jar.
2. Spread about 1-2 tsp of the strawberry cream cheese, or your chosen filling, across one end of a flattened slice of bread, about an inch from the edge; roll the bread up and repeat the steps until all slices are filled and rolled.
3. In a shallow bowl whisk together the eggs and milk until well combined.
4. In a separate bowl mix together the sugar and the cinnamon.
5. Melt a tablespoon of butter in a skillet over medium heat.
6. Dip the rolls in the egg, turning to coat on all sides, then place them in the pan seam side down; cook in batches, turning as they cook, until golden brown on all sides.
7. Add the hot rolls from the pan to the cinnamon sugar and roll until they are covered.
8. Serve as-is or with maple syrup for dipping.
