French Toast Roll Ups


Breakfast, lunch or dinner?  What is your favorite meal of the day?

Lunch is at the absolute bottom of my list.  I’m not a big sandwich eater and I’m usually too busy to stop to make something else.

Dinner?   Yep, it’s pretty good…..but…..

Breakfast is my meal of choice and sometimes we have breakfast for dinner.

Doesn’t everybody?

One time we had some friends over for dinner and we made a huge menu on a poster board and they were to check off what they would like for dinner.  Their options were pancakes, waffles, french toast, eggs, bacon and sausage. We had a fun mix of everything and it’s a dinner that my kids still remember!

So it’s no wonder that I was drawn to this pin for French Toast Roll Ups by Cinnamon Spice and Everything Nice!

Usually at the end of our posts we let you know whether this pin worked or not but I can’t wait until the end to tell you that these were to die for!

Although easy to make, they turn ordinary french toast into something extra special!

There are so many variations on what  you can put into the middle of these.  In most of mine I put cream cheese and homemade strawberry jam, but  I also made some peanut butter and jelly, nutella and strawberries and also some with Cookie Butter and Nutella.

What?

You don’t know what Cookie Butter is?

Check this out from Trader Joe’s.  And if you don’t have a Trader Joe’s in your area, you can also buy this from Amazon.com

The jar states  “A deliciously unusual spread reminiscent of gingerbread and made with crushed biscuits”.

This stuff is like BEYOND scrumptious!!  And in these French Toast Roll Ups, it is DIVINE! Seriously words cannot begin to express how yummers this is!

So enough of me yakkin’, let’s get on to the instructions!

Recipe type: Breakfast
Ingredients
  • 8 slices white sandwich bread, I used the multi-grain white bread from Costco
  • Peanut butter, jelly, cream cheese, jam, nutella or cookie butter!

Instructions
  1. Cut the crust from the bread and then flatten it with a rolling pin.
  2. Place about a teaspoon of each of your chosen filling, placing it an inch from one end of the bread. Spread this out in a strip but don't cover your whole piece of bread. Roll the bread up and repeat until they're all filled.
  3. Combine your sugar and cinnamon in a shallow dish and set aside.
  4. Whisk your eggs and milk in a dish, and dip the roll up into this mixture
  5. Melt your butter on your skillet or griddle which should be set on medium heat.
  6. Place your roll ups on your hot buttered griddle and cook all sides until golden brown.
  7. When browned, remove from the griddle and place in the cinnamon sugar. Generously coat with sugar.
  8. You can dunk these in maple syrup if you can get them to last that long!

 

Here’s a picture of my grandson helping me to flatten out the pieces of bread with the rolling pin.  This is a great opportunity to let your kids help in the kitchen!

My grandson and I agree that This Pin Rocks!  And we may or may not have eaten  some of these for dinner.   Just sayin’.

  1. these would be a big hit with our grandchildren! Yummy! Hugs

  2. Sound wonderful. I discovered Cookie Butter a number of months ago. It would be good spread on an old shoe!!!

    • Hi MaryAnn! Seriously isn’t that stuff addicting? Super good just straight on a banana. Kinda evens out healthy and not. Like an ice cream sundae and a diet coke! haha Thanks so much for stopping by. Deb – The Oldest Sister

  3. Meghan Gwilliam says:

  4. These look amazing :-) Pinned to make soon !

  5. I made these for my kiddos yesterday & they are a new favorite!!! Fabulous!! Thanks for sharing! Come take a look at http://www.hopefloatsandmore.blogspot.com

  6. Have you ever tried to freeze these after making them?

    • Danielle…ya know…I haven’t but I do freeze my bread all the time. Although these are dipped in an egg batter which might be a little soggy after freezing and thawing. Ours just didn’t last that long to freeze! Deb – The Oldest Sister

  7. im going to try a savory version. i have a feeling some crumbled bacon or sausage and scrambled eggs would be very yummy inside these. maybe this is whats for dinner tonight :-)

    • Ashley, I think that’s genius! I think am going to try that when everyone is here for Christmas! Thanks for the suggestion. Deb – The Oldest Sister

  8. You think something like this would be good inside a very thin pancake? I don’t eat eggs but these look and sound amazing!

  9. Can these be rolled up the night before?

    • Hi Candie, I would think they could be but not dipped in the egg mix though. The bread would get too soggy! Thanks for stopping by! Deb – The Oldest Sister

  10. Cookie butter came from Biscoff- It is a European cookie. My sister has had this around for years. I haven’t tried the Trader Joes brand, but I do love the Biscoff brand. http://www.biscoff.com/

    • Hi Patty! I hadn’t heard of either brand until my daughter turned me onto the Trader Joe’s version and boy is it yummy! Great on a banana! Deb – The Oldest Sister

    I made these with my own twist for dinner tonight :) I made my crepe filling (16 oz cream cheese 3/4 cup sour cream or plain yogurt–I did half & half & 3 TBLs sugar…after I rolled out the bread I spread the crepe filling & then spooned on diced fresh strawberries & then rolled them up. I pinched the ends shut so the egg/milk would stay on the outside. YUMMMMMM!!!! Thanks for the idea!

  12. I cannot wait to try these. My grandchildren AND grown up kids would love them as will I.
    That cookie butter sounds amazing and I will look for it the next I go to Trader Joes!

  13. Linda, my grandson LOVED making these with me. You can also find Biscoff European Cookie Spread at a WalMart that is just like Trader Joe’s Cookie Butter. Oh man, you won’t regret it! Deb
