French Toast Rollups


This is a great way to serve french toast for breakfast or any time. They are rolled up into hand held tasty sticks. Perfect meal for kids and adults alike. Baked in the oven or fried in a saute pan and perfect to cook up a big batch and easy enough to prepare the night before. Crisp edges and soft inside loaded with flavor.

The rolled up bread allows you to get the opportunity to stuff this French Toast with tons of flavor. You can stuff with a cream cheese filling by using a bit of sugar and add some strawberry jam to cream cheese.

Another idea is to take fresh fruit and wrap the french toast around it. You can put whatever you crave on and inside of your french toast roll up.



12 slices bread
2 eggs
¼ cup milk
1 teaspoon cinnamon
½ t vanilla extract
½ block cream cheese
¼ cup powdered sugar
⅛ cup strawberry (or your favorite) jam
butter
⅛ cup cinnamon + ¼ cup sugar
More Cinnamon for sprinkling & Maple Syrup for dunking

Flatten each slice of bread out with a rolling pin.
Mix up your filling (cream cheese, powdered sugar, & jam for suggestions). Place about 1-2 teaspoons of your chosen filling inside your bread (smear it on like you were making PB&J or make it a bit neater by just doing a strip about 1 inch from the edge of one of your sides). Roll the bread up tightly and repeat with the remaining pieces of bread.
In a shallow bowl whisk the eggs and milk and cinnamon until well combined
TO FRY:.Heat a skillet set over medium heat and melt a bit of butter. Dip each bread roll in the egg mixture coating well and then place them in the pan seam side down. Cook in batches until golden brown, turning them to cook and brown on all sides, about 2 minutes per side. Add butter to the pan as needed.
OR TO BAKE: Preheat Oven to 350. After dipping your French Toast Rolls, place seam side down on a parchment/slipmat lined baking sheet. Bake for about 10 minutes and then flip and back another 10 minutes or so until crisp on the outside.
In a separate shallow bowl mix the sugar with the cinnamon. As SOON AS cooked rolls come out of your preferred cooking method, roll them around in the cinnamon-sugar until completely covered in sugar.

I was just wondering what is your favorite french toast topping??
