Stuffed French Toast Roll-Ups

Breakfast on the weekends is a big deal in our house and has become a bigger deal since both of the boys started school. Living on a farm, we are all together for most meals. However, it seems like during the week breakfast is rushed so much that we tend to reach for cold cereal, instant oatmeal, or toast and yogurt. When the weekend hits we can make things a bit more fancy.

Stuffed French Toast Roll-ups

Several years ago, I made pancakes from scratch even though my husband said that he didn’t really care for them. That was before he knew that you could actually have peanut butter on them or add additions to them. Growing up they had plain pancakes with plain syrup only. Nothing fancy and it never varied.

My experience growing up with pancakes? Well my dad made them and you never knew what you were going to get! Word of advice…cajun pancakes are terrible! Take my word for it!

Stuffed French Toast Roll-ups

Homemade pancakes have become a staple in our house these days but it’s nice to have a few different recipes to mix it up with. Stuffed French Toast Roll-ups are for sure a favorite for the kids. They are handheld which does tend to keep that syrup mess contained. Leftovers serve well cold in a lunch box and the flavor combinations are endless.

Below, you will notice I use cherries, however homemade strawberry sauce or raspberry jam is generally the favorite. Don’t forget about the pie fillings that make for a sweet Sunday morning filling.

With all the summer fruits available this time of year the possibilities truly are endless! A few other filling choices? Mini chocolate chips, nutella, sliced bananas, raspberries, no-bake cheesecake filling and of course to really make a decadent Sunday morning breakfast or brunch treat you can top with homemade whip cream!
