  • 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.

  • Arrange the rolls in a dish, cover with plastic wrap, and freeze for at least 2 hours.

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  • Transfer frozen rolls to a baking dish and bake in preheated oven until hot in the center, 10 to 12 minutes.

Added some very ripe raspberries to the cream cheese filling and baked for 15 minutes. Not sure exactly why the roll-ups need to be frozen (maybe keeps the filling from oozing out?), but I froze them overnight. Must say it was nice this morning just to pull them out of the freezer and into the oven. These rolls are just crisp enough that you can hold them and eat, no fork necessary. They’re not overly sweet, and although I ate them hot, I think they’d be equally good at room temperature or even chilled. They'd be a terrific addition to a brunch buffet. Thanks jessnay for a quick and tasty breakfast today! Read More

I didn't roll my in cinnamon-sugar but instead in a typical French Toast mixture (eggs milk cinnamon and vanilla). Then right to a fry pan in butter. You can almost top them with anything. I had powder sugar maple and chocolate syrup and honey. Read More

Very nice and easy brunch option. My guests LOVED it. I will definitely make it again and double the recipie amount. The only change that I will make is to decrease the amount of sugar in the cream cheese spread.......just a little sweet for my taste buds. Read More
