French toast roll-ups have hot, gooey fillings stuffed into the middle of them with golden-brown, buttery outsides coated in a sweet, crunchy cinnamon sugar that all but melts in your mouth.
To make the roll-ups the crusts get trimmed from sandwich bread then the slices are flattened out with a rolling pin. The flattened bread is then rolled with the filling of your choice and cooked in a buttery skillet just like regular french toast.
A generous dusting of cinnamon sugar, one of the best things on earth, finishes them and you can dunk them in maple syrup or eat them as is. They’re also good eaten at room temperature.
The filling consists of anything your little heart desires! I used peanut butter & jelly, cream cheese & jelly, plain peanut butter and plain cream cheese.
You can use a nut butter, nutella, marshmallow fluff, dulce de leche, cajeta and/or whatever else you can think of! There are no rules and the recipe is really more method than precision.
They remind me of those french toast sticks that were all the rage a while back. Only more special.
A lot more special.
