If you like French toast, then these Apple Pie French Toast Roll-Ups will be your new favourite posh breakfast. Weekdays can be hectic, and in our rush to get on with the day, we hardly ever have time for a little treat.

Or, if we do have a bit of time to spare, we probably end up just having the usual breakfast. At least, I admit that I tend to go for pretty much the same options, out of habit, or just to make my life easier.

I definitely don’t do sugary stuff for breakfast too often, but who doesn’t like a little treat from time to time, especially at weekend, when you get to put your feet up and pamper yourself. Unless you have kids, then this does not apply, weeekends are just normal working (hard) days that start ridiculously early.

And then you do need all the sugar in the world to keep up with the forever energetic kids who hate sleep with all their might. As much as I love summer, days are way too long now, I cannot wait for the dark and short days when  kids wake up a bit later, and go to bed a lot earlier.

And what else comes with Fall? The season of everything pumpkin, cinnamon, apple, all yummy goodies that comfort you like nothing else. Apple pies  are super delicious, but you wait until you try my French Toast Roll-Ups, they are simply devine.

In the UK, the term eggy bread is a lot more popular when it comes to French toast. The first time I made it myself, I wasn’t too convinced that I liked the taste. But after teaking the recipe a bit, I can now declare myself super happy with the result.

And what’s the secret to some perfect French Toast Roll-Ups? Firstly, make sure you flatten up the bread, using a rolling pin is the easiest way. If you use eggs only to coat the roll-ups, you might find the taste too “eggy”, so adding a bit of milk makes a huge difference in taste.

It’s a lot lighter, and you can’t taste egg that much. I certainly like it better this way. I highly recommend you use cream cheese to spread the bread slices with, the rolls get to be sealed well, and they don’t open up when you fry them.

If you use either butter or any kind of oil, make sure you only use a small amount, especially if you have a non-stick pan. Too much butter/oil will make the rolls heavy and rather greasy.

The apples can be replaced with any other fruit, pears and strawberries being my next favourite fillings. Be generous with the amount of cinnamon you use, it can only make the rolls taste amazingly well.

For a savoury version, you can use either cheese, ham, sausages, bacon, and anything else that takes your fancy. And that’s your breakfast taken to the very next level. Delicious, easy, and super simple.
