These decadent Maple Bacon French Toast Rolls make a great breakfast or dessert recipe!
Now, before I go on, I want to disclose that this recipe is not for the faint of heart (or those who are watching their waistline). While these aren’t fat free, gluten free, sugar free or low carb, I can promise you that they are ah-mazing! Remember, this is a treat – not something we indulge in every day.
Now that we’re all on the same page, let me tell you about this recipe….
One of the most popular (and easiest) recipes on It Is a Keeper are these Easy Cinnamon Roll Ups. My son always requests them for a special treat.
Since August is Bacon Month, I thought I would try to incorporate BACON into the recipe. The result are these over-the-top Maple Bacon French Toast Rolls.
My son actually named them because they reminded him of french toast sticks.
The recipe starts with plain, white sandwich bread that is rolled super duper thin.
Then you slather on the maple cream cheese filling and top it with crispy cooked bacon.
The entire thing gets rolled up, dipped in butter and covered in cinnamon and sugar.
There are two things that make this recipe da bomb….
- BACON! That’s a no-brainer. Bacon makes everything better. (Can I get an amen?!?)
- Real maple syrup. And, by real, I mean the stuff that comes from trees. Not pancake syrup that you buy in the grocery store. This is the good stuff…that actually tastes like maple. It’s worth it…trust me!
These two things in combination are what takes this recipe over the top.
And, to kick those flavors up a notch, I served the rolls with crumbled bacon on top and some extra maple syrup for dipping.
See…I told you these weren’t for the faint of heart! I feel my blood sugar spiking just talking about them.
These Maple Bacon French Toast Rolls are a fantastic way to celebrate Bacon Month…or a random Tuesday.
