Music Selection: KC and the Sunshine Band – That’s The Way I Like It
I decided to make two different types of french toast rolls for breakfast to see which my family likes best. The first version has sausage, and the second version has blueberries with lemony cream cheese. Try them both and see which is “the way you like it” and which music pairs best with each! Enjoy!
½ cup milk
4 slices of bread (sourdough is great)
1 ½ Tbsp cinnamon (optional)
1 cup fresh blueberries (you can use frozen blueberries, too)
Zest from one lemon
2+1 Tbsp sugar
½ cup of room temperature cream cheese
2 Tbsp butter
Serve with maple or fruit syrups and/or whipped cream.
Preheat oven to 350 deg F.
With rolling pin, roll out the 4 slices of bread. If you want to cut of the crusts, you can, but we leave ours on.
In a large flat bowl or container, beat the eggs, milk, 1 Tbsp sugar and cinnamon.
In separate bowl, mix cream cheese, lemon zest and 2 Tbsp sugar with beaters and set aside.
Spread cream cheese mixture on each slice of bread. Then place a single row of blueberries at end of the bread slice. Roll up each slice of bread tightly. One at a time, soak the bread roll ups in the egg mixture.
In an iron cast skillet (that can go in the oven), melt the butter over medium heat. Add the roll ups and brown all “sides” of the roll ups. When brown, put the skillet in the oven and let bake for another 20 minutes.
Serve with maple or fruit syrup and whipped cream. Enjoy!
