Recipe type: Breakfast
Serves: 6 rolls
Ingredients
  • 6 slices square white bread
  • 125 g (half block) cream cheese – at room temperature (I’m using Philadelphia)
  • 5 tsp powdered / icing sugar
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • Fresh strawberries / raspberries / blueberries (I’m using raspberry and blueberries)
  • Egg mixture:
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • Cinnamon sugar coating:
  • 3 tbsp white sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
Instructions
  1. In a medium bowl, combine the cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla extract. Mix together with a fork until smooth.
  2. Slice of the crusts of the bread.
  3. Using a rolling pin, roll and flatten out each slice of bread. It should be thin but not too thin.
  4. Spread adequate amount of cream cheese on each slice and place the berries in a single row at one of the edges.
  5. Roll up the bread into a cigar shape, applying some pressure to keep it in shape.
  6. Heat up a non-stick pan with a little oil.
  7. Dip each roll into the egg mixture and place them into the hot pan.
  8. Cook until all sides are golden brown.
  9. Remove from pan and immediately coat each roll in the cinnamon sugar.
  10. Serve warm.
  11. Note: you could prepare the rolls ahead of time and refrigerate until ready to use. It is not necessary to thaw before cooking. Dip them into the egg mixture and cook as per instruction.
