My little household LOVES breakfast. We love waffles, pancakes, biscuits, pastries, donuts, anddd french toast! When I was pregnant with my boys I became obsessed with french toast, and apparently the craving just never left me. Griffin especially is always asking for french toast…

This morning I was feeling like trying something new…

And honestly these Raspberry Cream French Toast Roll-ups might quite possibly be the best thing I’ve ever put in my mouth. I’ve made french toast roll-ups before but never with the combo of raspberry jam and cream cheese. Yum!! I promise you guys will love these. πŸ˜‰

My little Calvin even gobbled these up! (I mean come on though, who wouldn’t). 

This recipe is also very versatile with ingredients (which I love). If you prefer strawberry over the raspberry? Go for it. As I was making these Raspberry Cream French Toast Roll-ups I just kept thinking about all of the other delicious flavor combos you could make; peanut butter banana, chocolate raspberry, pumpkin cream cheese? The options are endless… get creative!

There are basically 5 steps to my Raspberry Cream French Toast Roll-Ups:

  • 1. Make your egg/milk french toast mixture.
  • 2. Roll out the slices of bread (I removed some of the crust)
  • 3. Spread with raspberry jam and cream cheese, roll up tightly.
  • 4. Quickly dip in the egg mixture, cook in pan with butter. 
  • 5. Roll in cinnamon sugar … ENJOY! 

These are so good and rich as is the thought of adding syrup didn’t even cross my mind. (And I love syrup)

I love that these roll-ups look like I spent hours creating them, but really it was about 15 minutes! The shimmering cinnamon sugar on the outside paired with the jelly/cream warm inside kind of reminds me of a donut (with not as much fat/sugar of course). I also love that you probably have all of the ingredients on hand to make these any morning…Β

Author Becky French

Ingredients

  • 8 slices bread I used whole wheat
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup milk I used 2%
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup raspberry jam
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 Tbsp cinnamon
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • syrup optional

Instructions

  1. In a medium size bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, and vanilla extract. Set aside.

  2. Mix together the sugar and cinnamon. Set aside for later. 

  3. Roll out each slice of bread with a rolling pin (or anything round will work). I cut off the top rounded part of the crust (optional) – cutting off the crust will make it easier to roll up.

  4. Spread ~1 Tbsp of jam and cream cheese on each slice of bread. Roll up tightly. 

  5. When ready to cook. Heat the butter on medium heat in a large skillet. 

  6. Quickly dip each roll-up in the egg mixture. It doesn’t need to sit in there long at all just enough to coat. 

  7. Cook for ~1 minute on each side until golden brown. 

  8. Roll each roll-up in the cinnamon sugar we made earlier. Serve with syrup (optional) mine didn’t need it already sweet enough! Enjoy!!
