French Toast Roll-Ups… a yummy way to start your morning
Life has been quite hectic of late, even more than usually. I didn’t get to have too much time in the kitchen this past weekend and that is when I usually do my recipes for my blog so this week will be about simple recipes.
Sometime ago I must of signed up for a Betty Crocker newsletter, it has been popping up in my email for some time now. I don’t remember doing that, but anyway I have been enjoying the recipes that they feature in their newsletters. This is where I found this French toast roll-up, which are simple to make and oh so yummy.
If you can believe this we have family members that don’t like French toast, but even those that usually turn up their noses at French toast enjoyed these roll-ups. You can use the filling of your choice which could be endless, but I used cream cheese and blackberry jam.
They are simple to make and will certainly be a crowd pleaser.

8 slices white sandwich bread
3 tablespoons milk
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Butter for coating skillet

1. Cut crust from slices of white bread and flatten bread with rolling pin.
2. Spread desired filling on about 3/4 of the side of each slice of bread, leaving about a 1/2 inch of the bread with no filling. Whatever flavor combination you would like. Tightly roll up the slice of bread. Continue until all the slices of bread are filled and rolled up.
