These French Toast Roll-Ups have cream cheese, fruit, or whatever fillings you like rolled up in cinnamon sugar bread. Impressive and crowd pleasing!
We had a rough weekend. Without getting into too much detail, my baby girl had a stomach bug and my husband had food poisoning from a local fast food joint. Our washing machine was on overload. After a full day out of commission I joked to my husband that he might have to cancel his golf tee time the following day. But imagine that, he squeaked out the energy to make it. Amazing. I guess you could say I’m in need of a little relaxation. A pedicure might not hurt either. Mother’s Day can not come soon enough. If you’re pampering the mom in your life this weekend, fix her these French Toast Roll-Ups. They look gourmet and melt in your mouth. I ate 7 out of the 8 of them just to make sure. And if you love these, you’ll love this Lemon Blueberry Crescent Ring and this Blueberry Croissant Puff.
8 slices white sandwich bread
softened cream cheese, diced strawberries, or Nutella
3 tablespoons milk
⅓ cup granulated sugar
1 heaping teaspoon ground cinnamon
butter, for greasing the pan
Cut the crust from each slice of bread and flatten it out with a rolling pin.
Place about 1-2 teaspoons of your chosen filling 1 inch from one end of the bread in a strip. Roll the bread up tightly and repeat with the remaining pieces of bread. I really like cream cheese with diced strawberries as one combination and Nutella with diced strawberries as another combination.
In a shallow bowl whisk the eggs and milk until well combined.
In a separate shallow bowl mix the sugar with the cinnamon.
Heat a skillet set over medium heat and melt a tablespoon of butter.
