{RECIPE} French Toast Roll Ups

I have a confession to make…
I am 30 years old, and I JUST discovered that I like Nutella…
I know… CRAZY right?!
Have you ever gone your whole life (or at least a considerable portion of it) thinking that you hated something that you actually really like?! Well, I have. For some crazy reason I had always thought I hated Nutella until I received a little sample pack in the mail. I figured what the hell, might as well give it a try.
Mind.Blown.

How on earth could I have thought that I didn’t like Nutella?! That said, I shouldn’t be surprised that this has happened to me given that I did the exact same thing with corn on the cob years ago.

Anyways, in my quest to put my new love for Nutella to good use, I decided what better way to use it than to pair it with chocolate and strawberries and wrap it all together in a new spin on a classic favourite, French Toast.

Enter, French Toast Roll Ups!

The beauty of these little rolls is that you can put virtually anything in them, they’re super quick and easy to make, and they’re simple to eat, perfect for little hands! This batch was cream cheese and strawberry & Homemade Nutella and strawberry. I highly suggest trying your hand at making your own Nutella. It’s easy and super delicious and far more budget and waistline friendly than store bought.
{MAKE IT} French Toast Roll Ups
 
Ingredients
  • 8 slices of bread
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 Tbsp Milk
  • Cream Cheese* (Softened), Nutella, Fruit, Peanut Butter, or filling of your choice
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • 2 Tbsp cinnamon
Instructions
  1. In a shallow bowl or dish, wisk the eggs and milk together until combined, set aside
  2. Mix sugar and cinnamon in another shallow bowl or dish and set aside
  3. Trim crusts off each slice of bread
  4. Flatten each piece of bread with a rolling pin
  5. Place desired amount of filling at the end of one side of your flattened bread (I used about 2 Tbsp of cream cheese or Nutella) and top with berries, if desired
  6. Roll the bread tightly, repeat with remaining slices of bread, I added a thin line of cream cheese/Nutella to the inside of the end of the roll so the seam wouldn't come apart.
  7. Heat your greased pan or grill to medium heat
  8. Dip your bread rolls in egg mixture, making sure to coat entire roll and ends
  9. Place in pan, seam side down, turning to cook ensuring that all sides are golden brown
  10. Roll cooked rolls immediately in cinnamon sugar mixture until fully covered.
  11. Serve while hot with syrup, honey or just enjoy as is!
Notes
I mixed the cream cheese with a small amount of icing sugar to sweeten it up a bit as the kids didn't like the tartness of the cheese by itself.

    I have been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any
    interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough
    for me. Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the net
    will be much more useful than ever before.
