French Toast Roll-Ups

French Toast Roll-Ups

"Pour some sugar on me" - sang the French Toast Rollup... & I obliged :) How could I refuse, it makes them look so Diiiiiiivine ... that's the only way to describe these golden-brown toast rolls stuffed with the warm, nectarous goodness of fruits, nuts & spread of your choice and rolled in the crunchy sweetness of cinnamon sugar. A bunch of these French Toast Roll-Ups stacked on a plate look so mouth-watering that you may be tempted to simply gaze in admiration at their alluring beauty, but don't give in to that temptation... pick up one of these beauties, take a bite & let your teeth sink into the delish rolls & have your taste buds savor the soft, luscious filling oozing with ambrosial goodness - heavenly, isn't it!

French Toasts have been my favorite breakfast item since childhood days but once I made these French Toast Rollups upon finding several versions floating around on Pinterest, I discovered that they not only give a unique twist to the traditional French Toast recipe but also take it to a whole new level of scrumptiousness. Their preparation is quick & effortless, and the ingredients are basic & everyday items, & best of all, versatile - take your pick of your favorite berries, fruits, nuts, spreads (cream cheese, nutella, peanut butter) & watch (or rather, taste) the magic. My favorite combo is strawberries & cream cheese - I could eat twice my appetite of these in a single sitting! I find them perfect as-is, but dunk them in maple syrup if you like extra sugariness. Besides breakfast, they are great as an after-school snack or weekend snack, or frankly, any time you have a hunger for something sweet. So, did you wake up in the morning craving for something sweet & exquisite? Time to roll out a chart-topping hit of your own :)

FRENCH  TOAST  ROLL-UPS  RECIPE


Makes : 8 Pcs 
Ingredients:
8 slices Sandwich White Bread; crusts removed
2 eggs
3 tbsp Milk
1/4 cup Sugar
1 tsp ground Cinnamon
2 tbsp Butter for greasing the pan, or as required
Cream Cheese (softened) or Nutella; as desired
3/4 cup diced strawberries, or any other fruit of your choice

How to make French Toast Roll-Ups

  1. Flatten out each slice with a rolling pin.
  2. Place 1-2 tsp of cream cheese or Nutella on one end of the bread, spread it out in a strip (about an inch) from one end to the other. Place around 1 tbsp of diced strawberries (or any other fruit of your choice) over the spread. Roll the bread up tightly. Repeat process with the remaining pieces of bread.
  3. In a shallow bowl, whisk the eggs and milk until well combined. 
  4. In a separate shallow bowl, mix the sugar with the cinnamon.
  5. Heat a skillet over medium-heat & melt a tablespoon of butter on it.
  6. Dip each bread roll into egg mixture, and place it on the skillet with seam side down. Cook in batches of 3 or 4, turning until all sides of the roll are evenly golden-brown. Add butter to the skillet as needed. Once browned, remove the roll from the skillet & place it in the cinnamon sugar, and roll until completely covered. Serve immediately.

  3. Looks like a good recipe but what's the point of sharing it if you block everyone from copying it so it can be followed. Not everyone has a computer in their kitchen! :(
