Watch Me Make French Toast Roll-Ups

Step into the kitchen with me to make French Toast Roll Ups for breakfast!

With school starting soon and busy fall weekends ahead, these french toast roll ups are bound to make an appearance at our breakfast table many more times. How perfect they would be for a party or big brunch spread as well? So much easier than trying to serve french toast that has to be eaten with a fork and knife.

How to Make French Toast Roll-Ups

Trim a good, soft slice of bread of its crust (you can us wheat bread, but it’s generally not as soft). Roll it thin and spread with a cinnamon sugar filling before being rolled up tightly, dipped in an egg bath. Sautee in a skillet with melted butter until golden and slightly crisp on the outside, and finally sprinkled generously with cinnamon sugar. Mmmm….

Too Delicious for Leftovers

They taste amazing on their own, but a little dip in some maple syrup makes them extra sweet and scrumptious. For bonus points, serve with sliced strawberries and Nutella! I guarantee you’ll have no leftovers.

But if you do, just store French toast roll-ups in an airtight container in the fridge. I don’t know how well they freeze because, frankly, they never get that far!

Easy to make and fun to eat, these delicious french toast roll-ups are a creative breakfast treat for any day of the week!


  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 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 1/8-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.

  1. I LOVE these! I was wishing for cinnamon rolls but did not want to cook in the California heat. These rolls are outstanding! I want to experiment with rolling up with a little fruit jelly in the middle. I am not likely to freeze any of these because my husband and I will probably eat any I create! Thanks for the video! It made it easy to see how these go together! Cheers!

  2. I made these for the grandsons this morning. Only things I did different is cut sugar and added only brown sugar. I then dipped them in butter after the egg mixture. Put into air fryer and cooked about 5-7 minutes. I’d get one done and put in air fryer. They all per them were delicious! Thanks for a kid friendly recipe.

  3. Awesome recipe!
    I made these for the first time and the kids devoured them!
    So easy to prepare and I will definitely make them again and again and again!! 😁😁😁😁😁😁

  4. Hello Maegan!!

    These look and sound amazing! My husband works away from home. When he is home, he is home for one day and it is usually a Sunday. I love to cook on Saturdays so he can take meals with him to freeze etc. I’m going to make these for him. I am going to make them plain but also want to make them with an already cooked maple sausage link? If so, how do I do it correctly? Thanks so much!

    1. Hi April! I love hearing that! I hope y’all enjoy the roll-ups. They are a family favorite! I haven’t tested the recipe with sausage links so I couldn’t say for sure how to do it correctly. It sounds amazing so we’ll definitely have to try it soon and I’ll let you know how they turn out. Enjoy!

    1. Hi Jakob! Yes, soft wheat bread works just as great! We use it to make these all the time. Enjoy!

  5. Sooo good!! Made these for my mom’s bday and she loved them! Relatively easy and tasty.

  6. I took my crusts, remaining spread & egg mixture and mixed them together, let it soak up the mixture then cooked it in my waffle maker to make like a French toast bread pudding….waffle? Lol but it was delicious! Kids loved the French toast roll ups and I enjoyed the waffle thing.
