Strawberry Cream Cheese French Toast Roll Ups
This Strawberry Cream Cheese French Toast Roll Ups recipe is perfect for a weekend breakfast or brunch. They're simple to make, gorgeous to look at, and delicious to eat.
- 8 slices white bread fresh sandwich bread
- 2 oz cream cheese at room temperature
- 4 large strawberries diced small
- 2 tbsp butter unsalted, for frying
- 2 large eggs
- 1 tbsp milk
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon ground
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
Make the egg mixture: In a shallow bowl whisk the eggs, milk, cinnamon and vanilla extract until well combined. Set aside.
Roll the bread: Using a rolling pin, roll the bread until it’s flat. Slice the crusts off with a sharp knife. Spread with cream cheese on each slice of bread then top with a few pieces of strawberries, then roll them tight. Dip the roll up in the egg mixture and make sure all the bread has been coated. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
Finish the strawberry rolls: Melt the butter over a medium-high skillet. Sear the rollups starting with the seam side down until they're browned on all sides. Drizzle with maple syrup and serve.
These are best eaten fresh, but you can store your roll ups in an airtight container or large zip bag in the fridge. They will last 3-4 days.
You can also store them in the freezer for 2-3 months. Freeze them on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper then covered with plastic first for 1 hour, then transfer them to a freezer bag or airtight container so they don’t all freeze in one block.
You can reheat them either in the microwave at 30 second intervals until they're at your desired temperature or you can bake them at 325F for 10-15 minutes if thawed or 20-30 minutes if frozen.
