French toast roll up is an easy and fun recipe that can be made in no time.
When you are in a rush, it will be your forever love for breakfast. It is great as a quick snack for kids and gives you the option to play with the filling.
French toast roll-ups are always on our list during our iftar preparation year to year as they are quick to make up within 8 minutes. Also, it would end up in my kiddo’s school snack box for the same reason.
Hey, are you up for Quick snack box recipes? I have 3 easy recipes with Indian flatbread go watch it here.
We love our strawberry cream cheese french toast roll-ups, for which we added homemade strawberry jam instead of fresh strawberries, as strawberries are not available in India all around the year.
French toast roll ups fillings
Sharing here some of the other variations I have tried in the form of filling overtime,
- Savoury roll-up: I ended up with this when I stuffed some leftover mutton pepper fry from the afternoon instead of the regular sweet filling. However, avoid the sugar dust at the finishing end. It is a hit and I highly recommend, it if you would love to munch on the best savoury bites.
- I have also read about sausage fillings, though I haven’t personally tried it
- Nutella french toast rolls up: substitute the filling with Nutella spread, it’s definitely a hit when it comes to filling. Alternatively, try chocolate spreads
- Strawberry french toast roll-ups: enjoy these with fresh strawberries or combine them with cream cheese, it tastes heavenly with either.
- Cinnamon rolls french toast roll-ups: It’s a basic french toast rollup without any filling. Instead brush the inner part of the bread with butter, sugar, and cinnamon mix
- Banana french toast roll-ups: The best way to enjoy this french roll-up is to use peanut butter filling together with sliced bananas.
- Cream cheese french toast roll-ups: make them with fresh strawberries or recreate the same recipe as we did here.
French rolls without egg?
Yes, sure you can make one! just dip and soak them in a combination of any nut milk (half a cup) with 1 tablespoon of cornstarch for them to hold together.
Can you freeze them?
these roll-ups will be emptied in no time, but in case you want to refrigerate them use an airtight container to store them.
how to make french toast roll

2. Roll them with a rolling pin, till thin and soft. while rolling, ensure the rolling pin and surface is not wet.
3. Spread the filling on one edge of the bread and carefully, roll them up.
4. Dip them in a mixture of egg, milk and sugar.
5. Toast them at low heat
6. Sprinkle them with cinnamon sugar dust. you can also skip cinnamon if you aren’t fond of the smell. I just used a pinch, as I’m not a big fan of overpowered cinnamon.
7. Enjoy your roll-up bites. you can also dip them in honey or maple syrup as a dip. But, is also good to go as it is with sugar dust,
Tips from currylens
- Proper rolling and soaking, avoid opening of the rolls.
