These easy French Toast Roll-Ups take my favorite french toast recipe and wrap it around a sausage link, making a fun, dunk-able finger food everyone loves!

Don’t miss our other French Toast recipes including: Crunchy French Toast, Brioche French Toast, and Pumpkin French Toast.

French Toast Roll-ups served on a plate with a small bowl of syrup, for dipping.

When you make these French Toast Roll-ups, be sure to make a double batch! They reheat great, and are freezer friendly too, making them perfect for busy mornings that you need a good grab-and-go breakfast for yourself or your kids! We even like to bring them camping and reheat them in tinfoil over the fire.

I love that the ingredients are simple ones that I always have on hand (I keep pre-cooked sausage links in my freezer so I always have them when I want to make these, or breakfast quesadillas or a breakfast skillet).

The ingredients needed to make French Toast sticks.

How to make French Toast Roll-Ups:

Flatten the bread with a rolling pin or your hands. Cut crusts off, if desired.

Slices of bread rolled flat with a rolling pin.

Add sausage link: place the sausage on the front edge of bread and roll up tightly.

Dip into batter: Dip french toast roll ups into the egg mixture (this recipe uses our classic french toast batter), rolling gently to coat all sides, then place on hot griddle.

Bread rolled around sausage links, dipped in french toast batter.

Cook for a few minutes, turning gently as you go, until golden brown on all sides. Serve warm with homemade syrup.

Make Ahead and Freezing Instructions:

To Make Ahead: The egg mixture can be made up to 1 day ahead of time. The sausages can be rolled in flattened bread a few days ahead of time, stored in an airtight container in the fridge. Cooked leftovers can be stored in a sealed container for 1-2 days. Reheat in microwave, toaster oven, griddle or air fryer.

To Freeze: Store in a freezer safe container or bag with as much air removed as possible to prevent freezer burn. Reheat in microwave, toaster oven, griddle or air fryer.

Recipe Variations:

  • Nutella French Toast Rolls: Spread Nutella near the end of the piece of bread. Roll up tightly, dip in egg mixture, and cook according to recipe.
  • Strawberry Cream Cheese: Spread cream cheese near the end of the piece of bread and add diced strawberries, or some strawberry jam. Roll up tightly, dip in egg mixture, and cook according to recipe.
  • Peanut Butter Banana: Spread peanut butter near the end of the piece of bread and top with diced bananas. Roll up tightly, dip in egg mixture and cook according to recipe.

  1. Can you freeze them after it’s been coated with the ingredients. If it’s frozen what’s the best way to cook it and what sausages can be used?

    1. I wouldn’t suggest that, unless they were dipped in the mixture and cooked fully, and then frozen. To reheat you could pop them in the microwave, or thaw them in the fridge overnight and then toast them in a skillet until warmed through. Any small, fully cooked breakfast sausages can be used.

  2. Would it work to roll the cooked sausages in the bread a day in advance and keep then cold to take camping to cook the next could days? Or would it be better to roll out the bread at the time of cooking? I really want to take these camping this weekend! Thanks!

  3. Do you think you could make them ahead of time and freeze them cooked? We are going on vacation and looking for quick things to make in the mornings.

    I like the sections where friends of your site ask question about recipes, that helps me out. I just love all your recipes, they are my go to. My family loves all your cookie recipes. You should seriously think about putting all your delicious recipes into a book. I print your recipes and it looks like I have your book already but you still amaze me with new recipes. My family thanks you because I have upped my cooking and baking. I’m here in Arizona also.
