These French Toast Roll Ups are a fun twist on traditional French Toast. Fill them with your favorite spreads and make them different every time!
Try as I might to make enough banana muffins or strawberry scones to get us through until Friday, that doesn’t always happen. Cereal to the rescue. Zzzzzz, I know. But getting the kids to school on time is hard enough without actually cooking something in the morning.
The weekends, though, are a whole different story – I almost always make something more special. Not necessarily difficult, just something more exciting than Cheerios.
They pretty much went bananas when I put these French Toast Roll Ups on their plates.
What to fill these with
So many options! I make them different all the time.
The innards are all gooey and the outside is slightly crunchy. Which basically makes them dessert. No wonder they’re so good!
I love breakfast food. And I love FUN breakfast food even more!

How To Make These French Toast Roll Ups
French Toast Roll Ups
- 8 slices soft white sandwich bread
- 3 tablespoons Nutella (or nut butter, cookie butter, jam, apple pie)
- 2 large eggs
- 3 tablespoons milk
- 1/3 cup granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter , for greasing the pan
- maple syrup, for serving (optional)
- Trim the crust from the bread and flatten each slice out with a rolling pin.
- Place a heaping teaspoon of your filling an inch from one end of the bread, and spread it out in a strip. Roll the bread up and repeat with the remaining slices.
- In a shallow bowl thoroughly whisk the eggs and milk together. In another shallow bowl, mix the sugar and cinnamon together.
- On a griddle (or large sauté pan), melt 1 tablespoon butter over medium heat. Coat the rolls with the egg mixture and place seam side down on the griddle. Cook for about 1-2 minutes per side, until golden brown. Add more butter to the griddle as needed for the second batch.
- Place the hot rolls into the cinnamon-sugar and roll until completely covered, gently shaking off any excess.
- Serve with maple syrup, if desired.
