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)
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 cup finely chopped strawberries
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 Tbsp melted butter
  • 2 Tbsp Dixie Cinnamon Sugar or 2 Tbsp granulated sugar plus 1/2 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
  • 1/4 cup milk

Instructions

For the French Toast Roll-Ups:

  • Preheat oven to 375°F and line a baking sheet with a silicone mat or parchment paper.
  • Combine the cream cheese and powdered sugar in a small bowl and stir until smooth.
  • Using a rolling pin, flatten each slice of bread.
  • 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.
  • Roll up tightly, setting seam side down.
  • In a shallow bowl, beat together the egg, milk, and vanilla.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Return the pan to the oven and bake for another 10 minutes.
  • While the roll-ups finish baking, place the cinnamon-sugar in a small bowl, or combine the sugar and cinnamon.
  • Immediately after taking the roll-ups out of the oven, roll each one in the cinnamon sugar mixture.
  • Drizzle with Greek Yogurt Cream Cheese Drizzle.

For the Greek Yogurt Cream Cheese Drizzle:

  • Combine ingredients in a small bowl and stir to combine.
