French toast is already everyone's favorite sweet breakfast dish, so how could you possibly improve it? Well, that's where these French toast roll-ups come in. Thanks to Nellie's Free Range French Toast Mix, the recipe doesn't require you to crack any eggs or rummage around your pantry for cinnamon; simply stir together the dry mix and liquid of your choice, then fill, roll, and dip your bread! For an extra rich and creamy filling, try softened cream cheese and berry jam served with maple syrup for dipping on the side.



For the filling:

Option 1, cream cheese and jam filling:

  • 1/2 cup (4 oz.) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup strawberry or raspberry jam

Option 2, jam-only filling:

  • 3/4 cup jam of your choice

For the roll-ups:


  • Preheat pan or griddle over medium heat.
  • If using cream cheese in the filling, combine cream cheese and 1/4 cup jam in a small bowl and beat for 30-60 seconds on medium with a hand mixer (an electric mixer works best, but you can mix by hand in a pinch). Set aside.
  • Using a rolling pin, flatten each slice of bread individually. One pass with the rolling pin is enough for lighter breads, while heavier breads like whole wheat may need 4-5 passes to stay flattened.
  • Spread 1 tablespoon of your selected filling on each flattened slice, spreading to the edges.
  • Starting at the shorter end of each slice, use your hands to tightly roll it into a log, compacting it with a squeeze to keep it in place if needed. Repeat with remaining bread slices.
  • Combine 1/2 cup of the Nellie’s Free Range French Toast Mix and liquid of your choice in a shallow dish, mixing with a fork until well blended.
  • Dip roll-ups in the batter, using a fork to roll and thoroughly coat them on all sides.
  • Remove the roll-ups from the batter, briefly allow excess to drip into the dish, then set them on a plate to the side.
  • Once all roll-ups are coated, grease your pan or griddle with butter or oil.
  • Cook roll-ups for 1-2 minutes per side, rotating 4-5 times to allow all surfaces to cook fully.
  • Once browned on all sides, remove from the pan, serve warm with syrup, and enjoy!

Nellie’s Notes:

  • To make enough batter and filling for only 6 roll-ups, simply halve the ingredients above and follow the instructions as written.
