How To Make French Toast Roll Ups
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1⁄4 cup sugar
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 5 -6 strawberries, chopped
- 8 slices white bread, crusts removed
- 8 teaspoons Nutella
- kosher salt
- maple syrup
Lay each slice of bread flat on a surface, and use your hand or a rolling pin to flatten them gently.
Leaving a 1/4” border from the bottom edge, spread 1 teaspoon of Nutella on the lower third of the bread.
Sprinkle chopped strawberries over the Nutella layer.
Starting from the bottom, roll up the bread tightly. Repeat this process with the remaining slices of bread.
In a shallow dish, crack some eggs and whisk them together. Add milk, vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt to the eggs, and mix well.
Submerge the bread rolls in the milk mixture, ensuring the bread absorbs the liquid. Turn them once or twice to soak both sides evenly. Let excess liquid drip off before moving to the next step.
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat, and add 2 tablespoons of butter to it.
Place the soaked bread rolls in the skillet and cook, turning occasionally, until they turn golden brown on all sides, which should take about 5 minutes.
In a shallow bowl, combine cinnamon and sugar.
After removing the rolls from the skillet, roll each warm roll-up in the sugar mixture.
Serve the delicious roll-ups immediately with a side of maple syrup for added sweetness. Enjoy!
