    French Toast Roll Ups - What a Great Idea. Kids Love these

    When I saw this recipe, I know I had to make it. Kids love French Toast and Churros
    This is, you may say... a "poor man's" Churro.
    I made this for dessert, if you wanted to make them for breakfast, maybe just drizzle over some Maple syrup
    So you tust turn your Nutella filled French Toast into cigar shapes,  and dip in egg and milk.
    Shallow fry in butter
    Dust with sugar,  flavoured with cinnamon and orange zest
    Dip into a warm velvety chocolate sauce and
    Voila Heaven
    Mine is right!
    I grabbed this recipe off a friends Face book page and she got it from the Cinnamon, Spice and All 
    Webpage. I have made a couple of changes
    Reeni the host, suggested that you could use other spreads, but our kids adore Nutella
    I thought it could be nice, filled with grated cheese, like the Southland Cheese Rolls
    When they were cooked you could shake them around in finely grated Parmesan perhaps
    Maybe a few herbs?
    I will try that
    Once again, this is the time when only the plastic white bread, will do
    2 per person and sometimes you could almost eat more

    10 slices white sandwich bread
    2 eggs
    3 tablespoons milk
    1/3 cup granulated sugar
    1 heaping teaspoon ground cinnamon
    Zest of a medium Orange
    Butter, for frying

    Trim the crust from the bread and flatten it out with a rolling pin.
    Spread the Nutella over the bottom 3/4 of the bread

    Roll the bread up and repeat until they're all filled.

    In a shallow bowl whisk the eggs and milk until well combined.
    In a separate bowl mix the sugar with the cinnamon and orange zest
    In a skillet set over medium heat melt a tablespoon of butter.
    Add the rolls to the egg turning to coat on all sides then place them in the pan seam side down.
    Cook in batches until golden brown, turning them to cook and brown on all sides.
    Add butter to the pan as needed.
    Add the hot rolls from the pan to the orange and cinnamon sugar and roll until completely covered in sugar.
    Meamwhile whip up this very simple sauce to dip them in

    100 gms choc chips
    50 mls cream
    50 mls milk
    1/1/2 tbs golden syrup

    Place everything in a small pot
    Heat gently till melted
    I think everyone needs their own little bowl of sauce
    Dip your French toast into the yummy warm Chocolate


    By the way not just for kids. We loved them too
