How to Make Stuffed French Toast Rollups at Home
Stuffed French Toast Rolls are the easiest and most satisfying breakfast you will make for your family.
Start with your bread. You will want to remove the crust and then use a rolling pin to roll out your bread to a nice thin slice.
Let your flattened bread sit to the side while you make the batter. For your batter, you will combine the half & half, eggs, and cinnamon in a medium to a large bowl.
For one loaf of bread, I used 1 cup of half & half, 2 eggs, and just a sprinkling of cinnamon.
Beat well until it is all combined and set aside while you stuff your bread to fry up.
While your pan is heating up, spread a thin layer of cream cheese onto your bread. Then spread a thin layer of your fruit spread onto the bread. For your fruit, you can use whatever you want. I personally used a pie filling, but jam or jelly would work just as well. This part is totally based on what you personally like!
Now you want to roll your bread. This part is messy and honestly, your rolls probably won’t look too pretty, mine didn’t. I don’t cook for pretty though, I cook for taste and I promise you, even the rolls that separate and fall apart will taste just as delicious.
Dunk your rollups into the batter and coat them really well. Then drop them into your hot pan with melted butter.
Cook for about 5 minutes while rotating the rollup to make sure it is cooked on all sides.
