    Can I make these with something besides brushing them with an egg wash? My daughter has an egg allergy…. she can egg baked egg (egg cooked at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or longer…. but can’t eat anything with egg that’s only been cooked on the stove top). I’d love to make these but not sure what/ how to substitute.

    1. Megan, check out this post on how to make egg-less french toast. You can make the starch+milk mixture and soak up the roll-ups.

    So easy! My 5 year old also made them and they were extremely delicious!

  3. Kate says:

    Have you tried any other kind of spread instead of cream cheese? Nut or sunflower seeds butter maybe? (With a hint of chocolate?)

    1. MOMables says:

      you can fill these with nut butters, chocolate spread…

  4. Karen says:

    Could these be dipped in the egg ,cooked and frozen?

    1. MOMables says:

      I don’t see why you an’t freeze them once cooked. All you’d have to do is take them out to thaw and heat up. Enjoy!

      Just made a batch of these for tomorrow’s breakfast. I tasted one and they are really good . now we’ll see what my 3.5 and 16 month old think! Thanks for sharing!

    Success! Two out of three children loved these. Thank you for all of your great recipes! They definitely help me to get out of the same old rut.

    Have you tried these with any kind of gluten free bread? I tried some the otherdayand the bread literally crumbled. My daughter has been asking for these (I was sending these in her lunchbox before weren’t gluten free)…but we just went gluten free for the whole house to cut down on cross contamination for the 3 celiacs in our family, so I was just wondering if you’ve had success with any gf bread. If so, what kind did you use? Thanks.

    1. MOMables says:

      I have. They work with Canyon Bakery breads well. Udi’s and Rudi’s are too “stiff” to roll.

      1. Jocelyn Pethtel says:

        Thank you…I’ll make sure I add a trip to target in my near future for canyon bakery bread. ;). Thanks

    What is on the other side in the box? yogurt?

  8. Marci says:

    Do I need to let them defrost at all when I pull them out? Or just dip them frozen?

    1. MOMables says:

      Defrost first, then dip.
