French Toast Roll Ups- Filled with Jam

French Toast-Roll Ups

French toast roll ups filled with jam, delicious breakfast…

I’ve seen a few pictures and videos of French toast roll ups on my FB news feed, since then I’ve been wanting to try this. I love French toast, who doesn’t??? If the French toast has a yummy filling inside and when you bite into it, the filling just oozes into your mouth…now, that’s even more delicious.

I made a simple version, smeared the bread with strawberry jam and placed some freshly chopped strawberries on the bread, rolled it up and dipped in beaten egg and fried in butter till golden brown. This turned out delish, both kids and adults will indulge in this. This can be served for weekend breakfast, brunch or even as an evening snack.
