French Toast Rollups

We had “Brinner” again a couple of nights ago.  When I shared this with my friend, Carrie, she had called this Brunches cousin!!!  Hahaha…

I’ve been getting some great ideas for my menu on Pinterest the past couple of weeks.  Scored big when I stumbled upon these fun things.  The only negative thing?  I didn’t make as much as I should have.  The kids wanted more, I wanted more…

There are many different ingredients that you could load inside of the bread, but I thought that flavored cream cheese would be a hit.  I got some cinnamon and berry flavored cheese.  Can’t pick a favorite because they were both good.

I scrambled up some eggs and added some pepperjack cheese to the eggs and enjoyed this on the side.  I did have the syrup on the table but I think the kids loved the flavor of the cinnamon and sugar alone!  I put a bit on mine and I was in foodie Heaven!!!

Just delicious.  I’m so glad this recipe was found!  I thank Cinnamon Spice and Everything Nice for coming up with this!!  Thank you, thank you.  We will be having this again for sure!!

As you can see, this was a hit.

I don’t get to cook breakfast that often on the weekends, so when I make it during the week for dinner, I know I appreciate it.  Who doesn’t love breakfast for dinner!!!
