Mixing with Maggie: Strawberry Cream Cheese French Toast Roll-up

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) – Try this delicious sweet treat for Mother’s Day or just to enjoy yourself!

What you’ll need:

– 12 slices soft white bread, crusts cut off

– ½ cup cream cheese, softened

– 1 tablespoon powdered sugar

– ¾ cup chopped strawberries (about 8 strawberries)

– 2 large eggs

– ¼ cup milk

– 3 tablespoons butter, for sauté pan

– 2 tablespoons granulated sugar

– 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

– Maple syrup, for serving


1. In a small bowl, stir together the softened cream cheese and powdered sugar until well combined.

2. In a shallow bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk. Set aside.

3. In another small bowl, stir together 2 tablespoons of granulated sugar with 2 teaspoons of cinnamon. Set aside.

4. After trimming the crusts from each slice of bread, roll one slice out to about 1/8-inch thickness with a rolling pin. Spread each slice with a heaping teaspoon of the cream cheese mixture and then sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of chopped strawberries. Roll up tightly. Repeat with remaining bread slices, cream cheese mixture, and chopped strawberries.

5. Place 3 tablespoons butter in a large non-stick sauté pan and let melt over medium heat. (If using a small sauté pan, use just 2 tablespoons butter and sauté the roll-ups in two batches) Dip one roll at a time in the egg mixture and place in the sauté pan. Allow roll-ups to sauté for 1-2 minutes per side until golden brown and slightly crisp all around the outside. Remove to a work surface and sprinkle each roll-up generously with the cinnamon-sugar mixture.

6. Serve immediately with a dusting of powdered sugar and maple syrup for dipping.
