Hi everyone, this is Kathy from Lemon Blossoms and I am glad to be back as a contributor for Princess Pinky Girl!
I cannot begin to tell you how much my family loves these French Toast Roll-Ups! The thin layers of bread are slathered with creamy Nutella, dunked into sweet custard, sautéed to perfection and then rolled in cinnamon sugar. The result is mouthwatering deliciousness.

Just a few common ingredients (that you probably already have at home) is all you need to make this delicious treat!
- Bread (white works best, but whole grain will work too!
- Vanilla Extract
- Syrup (optional…but come on!)
PRO TIP: Looking for some other ingredients to make your stuffed french toast? Try replacing the Nutella with peanut butter or cream cheese mixed with cinnamon sugar. You can even slice some fresh fruit, like bananas or strawberries, and include them in the spread!
How To Make Nutella French Toast Roll-Ups
The process is super simple.
- Trim off the crust from each slice of bread.
- Using a rolling pin and flatten the piece of bread. No need to work out your frustrations here – the bread is pretty soft and not much effort is needed.
- Spread each slice of bread with a layer of Nutella. Control the urge to eat everything that has Nutella on it.
- Tightly roll each bread slice.
- In a shallow dish or bowl, whisk the eggs and milk, sugar and vanilla extract and set aside. In a separate bowl, mix the sugar and cinnamon.
- Dip each Nutella French Toast Roll-Up into the milk and egg mixture. A quick dip is all you need! We don’t want to soak up too much of the liquid custard.
- Then saute each roll over medium heat in melted butter until golden brown and slightly crispy. Remove from the pan and roll each roll-up in the cinnamon sugar.
By now, I can guarantee your kitchen smells amazing and you are more than ready to start eating (that is if you have not already taken a bite of a warm and sugary Nutella French Toast Roll-Up – I know they are hard to resist!)

- In a separate small shallow bowl, mix together the sugar and cinnamon and set aside.
- In a large nonstick saute pan over medium heat, melt the butter. Dip each Nutella French Toast roll-up in the milk and egg mixture. Place the roll-ups in the pan and cook for about 2 minutes, turning them as needed until they are golden brown and slightly crisp on all sides. Repeat until all the roll-ups are sauteed.
