For when you want to splurge a little for breakfast. A sweet and easy treat. Try sprinkling confectioners' sugar over the rolls for a pretty look. Serve with whipped cream, syrup, or alone. Enjoy!

  • Flatten bread slices using a rolling pin. Mix bananas and cream cheese together in a bowl; add sugar and cinnamon and mix well. Whisk eggs in a separate bowl.

  • Spread about 2 1/2 tablespoons banana mixture onto 1 end of each flattened bread slice. Roll bread slice around filling. Dip bread rolls in the egg until coated and place in the hot skillet, working in batches if needed.

  • Cook French toast rolls in the hot oil until browned, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Repeat with remaining rolls.

Cook's Note:

Use a tall glass to flatten bread if you don't have a rolling pin.

This is like a cross between a crepe and french toast and I love the eye appeal you get with the rolls. I used reduced-fat cream cheese white bread (didn't have any wheat on hand) and did put a little butter in the skillet along with the oil. The filling is loaded with luscious and creamy banana flavor with a hint of cinnamon and just enough sweetness. A definite remake in this house with nice enough presentation for company brunch. Thanks Glo for this wonderful new recipe. Read More

If you like Bananas Foster you'd like these! The recipe as written makes too much filling though and I needed more than 2 eggs. I suggest cutting the filling in half because I ended up using 14 pieces of bread and 6 eggs and STILL had about a cup of extra filling (which I was happy to eat with a spoon). That was using a heaping tablespoon of filling per roll and sorta trifolding them and sinching the ends so it didn't ooze out on my griddle. I dusted mine with powdered sugar and the kiddos ate them whole and dunked them in syrup. I think they'd be good with nuts incorporated for a Banana Nut Bread flavor. Read More

These are tasty but beware of using dense wheat bread! We had difficulties rolling the bread and it resulted in crumbly French toasts. Read More

I followed the exact directions- except I had to add some extra bread slices (my bread must have been smaller slices). The cream cheese flavor was too much. I think some extra cinnamon and sugar might have helped. 2 out of my 3 of kids were not impressed. Read More

These were fantastic!! My boys loved it. I think my bananas may have been too ripe cause the filling was pretty loose so it oozed out some but they were still delish!! Can't wait to make this again!! Read More
