French Toast Roll-Ups

French toast roll-ups are a snack my brother and I have been making for a long time. They’re quick and easy to make and can be filled with whatever you want. I especially like them with Nutella, but they’re also good with plain chocolate sauce if you can’t eat nuts. The roll-ups are a perfect after-school snack, and you can also have them with breakfast!


  • 2 slices of bread
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp granulated sugar
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • Nutella (can be replaced with whatever filling you want)


  1. Mix the cinnamon and sugar and set aside.
  2. Cut off the crust of the bread and roll it with a rolling pin until thin.
  3. Spread the Nutella on the bread and roll it up.
  4. Whisk the egg and dip the bread in the mixture. Make sure to cover all the sides.
  5. Heat a frying pan on medium heat and add some butter or oil to keep the French toast from sticking (or you can use a non-stick pan).
  6. Put the rolled bread in the pan and rotate every 30 seconds.
  7. When all sides are golden brown, take the rolls out of the pan and sprinkle some cinnamon sugar on top.
  8. Serve plain or with whichever toppings you like.
