Looking for some breakfast inspiration? Trying to get your kids out of a bowl of cereal rut and out the door?
Mornings can be a busy time of the day. As moms, we want to send our kids into the day with bellies full of good food to power their bodies and brains through the morning, but breakfast can often be an obstacle to getting out the door. These french toast roll ups can be prepped ahead of time, and frozen. When you are ready to use, pull out the roll ups, dip them in egg wash and cook in a skillet. Finish them off with a sprinkle of cinnamon sugar and you’ll have a warm breakfast to go that your kids will love!
