A different type of french toast for breakfast. Or maybe a breakfasty appetizer to break from the norm. These are them.
8 slices white sandwich bread (the soft, fluffy type)
peanut butter, jelly, cream cheese, dulce de leche, cajeta or nutella
3 tablespoons milk
1 heaping teaspoon ground cinnamon
butter, for greasing the skillet
maple syrup, for serving
Trim the crust from the bread and flatten it out with a rolling pin.
Place about a teaspoon or 2 of your chosen filling an inch from one end of the bread spread out in a strip.
Roll the bread up and repeat until they're all filled.
In a shallow bowl whisk the eggs and milk until well combined.
In a separate bowl mix the sugar with the cinnamon.
In a skillet set over medium heat melt a tablespoon of butter.
Add the rolls to the egg turning to coat on all sides then place them in the pan seam side down. Cook in batches until golden brown, turning them to cook and brown on all sides.
Add butter to the pan as needed.
Serve with maple syrup for dunking.
Next time, I may not put any filling in at all and have the classic tasting french toast in a rollup form. I also might try powdered sugar next time instead of cinnamon/sugar mix.
