Sometimes, I get stuck in such a rut with making breakfast foods at home. If it’s not cereal or oatmeal with the kids– or Ian’s Famous Pancakes– I end up reaching for something random, or just skip breakfast entirely. And my personality does not mix well with being hungry! LOL. I was telling my kids about french toast a month or two ago, because they hadn’t ever had it. I was trying to explain what it is, and they just weren’t into the idea of trying it. Marlowe in particular was especially appalled at the concept of dipping a piece of bread in egg and then frying it in the pan. I figured it might seem more fun to eat if it was in a different shape, or looked more like a dessert! Also, I consider it my personal mission to prove my kids wrong when it comes to any type of food dislikes or phobias. It was game time!
I ended up making these Strawberry French Toast Roll-Ups for them, and everybody flipped for them, most of all me. Ha! They’re just so delicious, and easy to eat. You can even eat them as a finger food or on the run if you have a commute! My favorite thing about these french toast roll-ups is that you can sub in any kind of fruit for the strawberries if there is something you love in season. My kids also love to have these with chocolate chips in place of the fruit sometimes. Give them a try and let me know how you like them!
