Recipe type: Breakfast
Serves: 8
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 8 slices soft white bread, crusts cut off
  • 3 tablespoons butter, for saute pan
  • maple syrup, for serving
  1. In a small microwave-safe bowl, melt 3 tablespoons butter until just melted. With a fork, stir in 3 tablespoons granulated sugar, 2 tablespoons brown sugar and 1 tablespoon cinnamon until a smooth spreadable mixture forms. Set aside.
  2. In a shallow bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk. Set aside.
  3. In another small bowl, stir together 2 tablespoons granulated sugar with 2 teaspoons cinnamon. Set aside.
  4. After trimming the crusts from each slice of bread, roll one slice out to about ⅛-inch thickness with a rolling pin. Spread each slice with a thin layer of the butter mixture and roll up tightly. Repeat with remaining bread slices and butter mixture.
  5. Place 3 tablespoons butter in a large non-stick saute pan and let melt over medium heat. (If using a small saute pan, use just 2 tablespoons butter and saute the roll-ups in two batches) Dip one roll at a time in the egg mixture and place in the saute pan. Allow roll ups to saute for 1-2 minutes per side until golden brown and slightly crisp on the outside. Remove to a work surface and sprinkle each roll up generously with the cinnamon-sugar mixture.
  6. Serve immediately with maple syrup.

    We just made these and they were great! We served them with bacon on the side but I am thinking I might put crumbled cooked bacon on the inside next time. Thank you for the recipe!

    When I make french toast, I spread peanut butter on the bread like a sandwich. I’m gonna try that with these also. Sound Good? Try it. My family loves it.

  3. Heather

    Wow, not too often I come across someone with the same spelling as my daughter’s name. Can’t wait to try this recipe! I’m sure Maegan will love them.

      Love it! I think I’ve only met a handful of people that spell it the same. Mae is a family name so that is why my parents spelled mine this way. Hope y’all enjoy the roll-ups! 🙂

  4. Gail Baker

    These look absolutely delicious. I can’t wait to make them for my Fiancée. He is going to just love them!!

      Hi Maurya! I would suggest making and cooking them completely. Then let them cool and freeze them. When you’re ready to eat them you can reheat them in the oven or on the stovetop to crisp them back up. Hope this helps. Enjoy!

  5. Shannan

    Oh my gosh! This is the yummiest french toast I have EVER had! My kids and I absolutely LOVE it. Thank you so much for the most wonderful recipe 🙂

  6. Carrie

    I would cut back on some of the sugar, and make sure you don’t overfill them. I think it was my error, but they are VERY sweet.

    Great recipe though! And lots of room to add whatever you like. Thanks for the ideas!!

    I made these French toast roll ups as directed. After sprinkling with the cinnamon sugar I drizzled them with a bit of leftover cinnamon roll glaze. oMg! Delicious! This recipe is a keeper!
