French Toast Roll-ups

by Heather

in Breakfast

These are super tasty, easy to make, and are great for a quick warm breakfast before school/work!

 

Ingredients:

8 oz. cream cheese – softened

1 egg yolk

1 cup sugar

24 slices of bread – crusts removed

1 tbsp cinnamon

3 tbsp butter – melted

 

First, cut off all of the crusts on your bread.

Next, combine the cream cheese, yolk and 1/4 cup of the sugar in a bowl.  Set aside.

With a rolling pin, roll out the slices of bread to make a thin layer.

Add a thin layer of the cream cheese mixture to each slice of rolled out bread.  Coat evenly.

Once each bread slice is coated with the cheese mixture, roll them up.  Start at one corner and roll across.  Place the rolls on a baking sheet.

In a separate bowl, melt the butter.  In another, add the remaining 3/4 cup sugar and the cinnamon.

Coat each individual roll with butter and then roll in the cinnamon sugar mix to cover.

Place the finished rolls back on a cookie sheet, and then place in the freezer for at least 2 hours to firm up.

After the 2 hours is up, preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  Bake the rolls for 10 minutes.  Serve hot with some maple syrup!

These can be made in bulk and kept frozen (before baking) for up to 2 months!
