French Toast Roll-ups

Ingredients

With a hint of cinnamon and sugar on the outside, and a creamy filling on the inside, our mini French Toast Rollups are the perfect make-ahead, portable breakfast!

Yields: 24 rollups

Chilling Time: 2 hr

Cooking Time: 10 min 

  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 cup sugar, divided
  • 24 slices white sandwich bread, crusts removed
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, beat cream cheese, egg yolk, and 1/4 cup sugar until smooth; set aside.
  2. Roll out each bread slice with a rolling pin. Spread cheese mixture over bread, distributing evenly. Roll up each slice jellyroll-style and place seam-side down on a baking sheet.
  3. In a shallow dish, combine remaining 3/4 cup sugar and the cinnamon. Brush butter over rollups then roll them in the cinnamon-sugar mixture, until completely coated. Repeat with remaining rollups, placing them on the baking sheet after coating.
  4. Cover and freeze for at least 2 hours.
  5. Just before serving, preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Bake rollups 10 to 12 minutes, or until golden.
