Mom has always told us that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. But when mom isn’t there to make you a complete pancake breakfast in the busy morning, who has the time to eat anything? I usually stick to a bowl of cereal if there’s time but I’ve been accustomed to skipping over breakfast downing about 2 cups of coffee before my day begins.

But I will tell you that when I do have the time to whip up a fun breakfast, I will make it count. That being said, I present to you my all-time favorite breakfast: french toast roll ups!

These roll ups are such a fun twist on the traditional french toast, which seem to be too boring now that I’ve made these. After all, who wants to go back to a slice of bread when you can have them rolled up in the creamiest of all cream cheeses with fresh blueberries, slathered in buttery, cinnamon sugar goodness?

You can serve them as is or you can even dunk them in a little bit of syrup – either way, you’ll want to have these for breakfast every single morning!

Blueberry French Toast Roll Ups

A fun twist on French toast stuffed with cream cheese and blueberries, tossed in cinnamon sugar goodness!

15 minutes10 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 8 slices sandwich bread, crusts removed
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup blueberries

Directions:

  1. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium high heat.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together, eggs, milk, vanilla and nutmeg; set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon; set aside.
  4. Working one at a time, use a rolling pin to flatten bread to about 1/4-inch thickness. Spread cream cheese on the bottom of each slice of bread and top with a row of blueberries. Bring the bottom edge of the bread tightly over the filling, rolling from bottom to top until the top of the bread is reached. Repeat with remaining slices of bread, cream cheese and blueberries. Dip bread rolls into the egg mixture.
  5. Working in batches, add bread rolls to the skillet, 3-4 at a time, and cook until evenly golden brown, about 2-3 minutes on each side. Immediately dredge bread rolls in the cinnamon sugar mixture, pressing to coat.
  6. Serve immediately.

  1. Chungah, do you think these would be good rolled in cornflakes, like your recipe for corn flake french toast? I’m such a fan of your site! Thank you for your amazing recipes and the time and effort you put into it!

  2. The only problem is this recipe only makes 8. I guess I’ll have to make it when I am by myself. Lol they sound so, so good. Any fruit, berries or pie filling would be yummy.

  3. This looks Fantastic!… However, I’m really not a fan of Blue Berries or Berries of any kind, in general… Do you think this can be made with a little bit of Canned Apple Pie Filling, instead?… If so, then I can also see this dish being a great Dessert at that point… With a Dollop of Whip Cream on the Top of it & a Scoop of Vanilla Ice Cream, right beside it!… Yum!… Lol!… Please let me know if a little Pie Filling would work, as opposed to Berries… Thanks!… 🙂

  4. Holy Moly, these look amazing! I just discovered your blog today through a pin on Pinterest, and have been a re-pinning fool since then. So many INCREDIBLY YUMMY recipes to try! I’ve been in a sad ‘tempting new recipe’ slump for weeks and weeks now, until today. Now I’ve got about 20 new recipes I want to try from your blog and I haven’t even scratched the surface of all the goodness you have posted here! Thank you sooooo much!!

  5. Yum! Love these! We always have all sorts of fruit on hand so I tried doing an assortment of fruits and they all turned out so good! Thanks for the great idea!

  6. WOW!!These are delicious. My daughter is earning her Family Helper Badge and made these for everyone. They turned out great and were easy!! Thanks!!

  7. I’ll admit I was skeptical, but these turned out better for me then my regular french toast recipe. My kids loved it too. Thanks for the great recipe!

  8. Do you think they could be baked? They look so delish!

    • Yes, absolutely. You will have to play around with the baking temp/time as I have never tried baking this myself.

  9. Wow! These look incredible I can’t wait to make them!

  10. I tried these for a brunch I hosted yesterday – they were amazing! The thing I ended up loving the most was the simplicity in the design. With the roll and the blueberries, each forkful you cut was just perfect and had the bite of berry. The only negative thing I’d have to say was that I wished I had sweetened the cream cheese slightly. And I know this to be an improvement because I was so in love with this, that I made it for dessert except shaped the bread into little pies. This time I added a little sugar and vanilla extract to the cream cheese and it was soooo much tastier. I also left the crusts on my bread, and didn’t notice any downside to that. Thanks for the great recipe, I fully intend on trying lots of other fillings.

  11. Voy hacer los rodillos de pan bimbo con el queso y arándanos ¡¡ tienen una pinta !!
    Una pregunta ¿ se pueden freír con aceite de jirasol en vez de mantequilla ?
