A delicious twist on French toast with a yummy cream cheese filling.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 cup white sugar, divided
  • 24 slices white bread, crusts removed
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Beat cream cheese, egg yolk, and 1/4 cup sugar together in a bowl until smooth. Pour melted butter into a separate shallow bowl. Mix remaining 3/4 cup sugar and cinnamon together in a third shallow bowl.
  2. 2 Spread even amounts of the cream cheese mixture onto one side of each bread slice. Roll the bread into a cylinder around the cream cheese filling. Brush melted butter around the outside of each cylinder and roll the cylinders in the cinnamon-sugar mixture to coat.
  3. 3 Arrange the rolls in a dish, cover with plastic wrap, and freeze for at least 2 hours.
  4. 4 Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  5. 5 Transfer frozen rolls to a baking dish and bake in preheated oven until hot in the center, 10 to 12 minutes.
