Stuffed French Toast Roll-Ups

The summer is almost over! I’m not sure where the time went but school starts here in South Florida in just about two weeks. I’ve been reveling in the slow start to the day the summer offers.  

It’s been a challenge work/life balance wise since the kids are home, but the quiet mornings are a major perk!  Jaiden + Sienna sleep in {we call sleeping in 8:30 am around here … I can’t get them to stay a second more lol} and I’m able to take my time and fix myself a cup of coffee and make something a little extra special for breakfast. 

I got the idea for these Stuffed French Roll-Ups on Pinterest a long time ago. Time constraints and well … life had me putting it on the back burner, but a few weeks ago we headed to one of our favorite diners and Will ordered their Stuffed French Toast and I made a mental note – “must make this ASAP!”

These are really easy to make its just a few extra steps than regular french toast but it’s so worth it. The kids loved them and of course want them all the time now – to save time I make a batch and freeze them, you pop them into the toaster oven and voila – decadent breakfast made instantly. 

You can mix together your favorite ingredients so it’s definitely a versatile dish.

  1. 8 slices of sandwich bread {most recipes call for white bread but we always have whole wheat on hand and that's what I used, it worked out perfectly fine}
  2. 2 eggs
  3. 3 tablespoons of milk
  4. your favorite spread: nutella, peanut or almond butter, jelly or jam, marshmallow fluff ...etc.
  5. 1 tablespoon of granulated sugar
  6. 1 teaspoons of cinnamon
  7. a sprinkle of nutmeg {you can omit this if you're not a fan of nutmeg}
  8. your favorite fresh fruit
  9. butter for greasing your pan
  10. syrup

Instructions

  1. Trim the crust from the bread and flatten it out with a rolling pin.
  2. Place about a teaspoon or 2 of the filling of your choice an inch from one end of the bread spread out in a strip and add a few pieces of your fresh fruit.
  3. In a shallow bowl whisk the eggs and milk until well combined.
  4. In a separate bowl mix the sugar with the cinnamon and nutmeg.
  5. In a skillet melt your butter
  6. Add the rolls to the egg mixture and make sure you coat all sides.
  7. Place them seam side down and cook until golden brown.
  8. Add the hot rolls from the pan to the cinnamon sugar and roll until completely covered in sugar.
  9. Serve with syrup.

Notes

  1. Tip: make a batch of these {omit rolling them around in the cinnamon sugar} and freeze them for later use. Pop them into a toaster oven when you are ready and enjoy.
  2. It's a perfect way to have a great breakfast fast!
