Ingredients
For the French Toast Roll-Ups:
  • 12 slices sandwich bread (I used whole wheat)
  • 4 oz. cream cheese, at room temperature (I used light cream cheese)
  • ¼ cup powdered sugar
  • 1 cup finely chopped strawberries
  • 2 eggs
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 Tbsp melted butter
  • 2 Tbsp Dixie Cinnamon Sugar or 2 Tbsp granulated sugar plus ½ tsp cinnamon
For the Greek Yogurt Cream Cheese Drizzle:
  • ½ cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 oz. cream cheese, at room temperature (I used light cream cheese)
  • 2 Tbsp powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ¼ cup milk
Instructions
For the French Toast Roll-Ups:
  1. Preheat oven to 375°F and line a baking sheet with a silicone mat or parchment paper.
  2. Combine the cream cheese and powdered sugar in a small bowl and stir until smooth.
  3. Using a rolling pin, flatten each slice of bread.
  4. Evenly spread about 1 Tbsp of the cream cheese mixture on top of each slice of bread and top with a scant tablespoon of the strawberries.
  5. Roll up tightly, setting seam side down.
  6. In a shallow bowl, beat together the egg, milk, and vanilla.
  7. Dip each roll up into the egg mixture to coat completely, shake off the excess, and place seam side down on the prepared baking sheet.
  8. Bake for 10 minutes, remove from the oven, and brush the top of each roll-up with melted butter. Flip the roll-ups and brush the other side with butter.
  9. Return the pan to the oven and bake for another 10 minutes.
  10. While the roll-ups finish baking, place the cinnamon-sugar in a small bowl, or combine the sugar and cinnamon.
  11. Immediately after taking the roll-ups out of the oven, roll each one in the cinnamon sugar mixture.
  12. Drizzle with Greek Yogurt Cream Cheese Drizzle.
For the Greek Yogurt Cream Cheese Drizzle:
  1. Combine ingredients in a small bowl and stir to combine.
