French toast roll ups are super easy to make and come together in minutes. Next time you are wanting to make breakfast, give these a try. If I can do it, you can do it. Let’s get started!

Step 1: Gather the ingredients

In order to make French toast roll ups you need just a handful of ingredients:

  • Bread – You can use normal white sandwich bread, wheat bread, multi-grain, etc.
  • Eggs
  • Sugar
  • Cinnamon
  • Oil
  • Toppings/Fillings – Some things I like to use are Nutella, whipped cream, strawberries, bananas, etc.

Tools

  • Bread knife – You want to be able to trim off the crust easily.
  • Pie plate – This will hold the cinnamon and sugar.
  • Bowl – For the eggs
  • Skillet
  • Tongs
  • Rolling pin

Step 2: How to make French toast roll ups

Knife and hand trimming the bread.

Begin by trimming the crust off of the bread. You can save the crust and make croutons or something if you like.

Now take each slice of bread and roll them flat so they are about 1/8th of an inch or even thinner. It is essential to roll the bread, otherwise it doesn’t roll up correctly with the filling in it.

Hand spreading on Nutella onto a rolled flat piece of bread.

Spread out a thin amount of Nutella on the bread, or even jam, or a strawberry sauce. Take some soft bananas and mash them up with a tablespoon of sugar. Then add a bit of it to one side of the rolled out bread.

The combination of Nutella and mashed bananas is amazing. Of course, there are several different variations of filling that you can do. Strawberries and whipped cream, bananas and whipped cream, Nutella and strawberries, or other berries, etc.

Maybe you want to do peanut butter or almond butter, so many awesome options you can try!

Hand rolling up a French toast roll up

Now all you need to do is start at one end and roll up the bread, fairly tightly with the filling inside. The French toast roll up is almost ready.

Take a bowl and add the eggs, whisk them really well, you can add a bit of cream or milk to it as well if you like.

Set the skillet with a little bit of oil or butter on the burner and set the heat to medium and let the pan heat up for a few minutes.

Cook the French toast roll up for 30 seconds or so and then turn it a bit with tongs and cook it some more. Keep doing this until they are golden brown all around. You can put 4 or 5 of them in a skillet at once, depending on how large your skillet is.

Place the cinnamon and sugar in a pie plate and mix it together. Then roll each French toast roll up in the cinnamon and sugar. You can leave them like this or top them with whipped cream, sliced strawberries, maple syrup, powdered sugar, etc. Serve immediately while warm. Enjoy!

How long do French toast rolls up last?

They are best when eaten right away. They will last a few days in an air tight container in the fridge. You can also freeze them if you like.
