Blueberry French Toast Roll Ups with Cream Cheese Dipping Sauce

Ingredients

  • 16 - 20 slices sandwich bread
  • 1/2 cup blueberry jam
  • 1/2 pint fresh blueberries
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 Tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 pinch ground nutmeg
  • 2 Tbsp butter, melted
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • Dipping Sauce
  • 3 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 3 oz butter, softened
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 1/2 - 2 Tbsp milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Stack bread into stacks of 4 slices, then trim crusts from bread. Working with one piece of bread at a time, use a rolling pin to flatten bread to about 1/2 it's original size. Evenly spread 1 tsp blueberry jam just onto one half of the bread, then align a row of blueberries over jam. Roll bread to opposite end and set aside, seem side down. Repeat with remaining slices of bread.
  2. To a blender add eggs, milk, vanilla, flour, baking powder and nutmeg. Cover and blend on low speed 10 - 15 seconds until well blended. Pour into a bowl and dip roll ups into egg mixture, allowing to rest several seconds to absorb liquid. Transfer to a lightly greased Silpat lined baking sheet (I didn't grease mine and I had about 3 of them stick, but was easily able to remove them with a spatula).
  3. Bake in preheated oven 9 minutes, then remove from oven. Brush tops lightly with melted butter then rotate french toast roll ups to opposite side and brush lightly with melted butter (bottoms should now be upright).
  4. Return to oven to bake 8 - 12 minutes longer until cooked through.
  5. In a small bowl whisk together granulated sugar and cinnamon. Once french toast roll ups are cool enough to handle, immediately dip and roll in cinnamon sugar mixture to evenly coat.
  6. Serve warm with cream cheese dipping sauce.
  7. For the cream cheese dipping sauce:
  8. In a mixing bowl, using and electric hand mixer, whip together cream cheese and butter until smooth and fluffy. Add in powdered sugar, milk and vanilla and whip until well blended and fluffy. Store in refrigerator.

Notes

Tip: With these you can add various fillings including blueberry, raspberries, strawberries, diced bananas, chopped nuts, Nutella, sweetened ricotta and chocolate chips. Rather than baking these you could also cook them in a fry pan over the stove-top, rotating to opposite side occasionally until cooked through.
