Super Quick And Easy Bread Roll Ups

I want to share with you one of my fiance's favourite breakfast, lunch, snack or dinner. Yes, he can eat them all the time. Earlier tonight he turned and said "Baby, do you know what i really fancy tonight, do you have the ingredients for the cheesy rolls", it does melt my heart, no idea why, when he finally knows what he wants for dinner.
Normal cheese toasties can be a bit flat, but when you roll a slice of bread with cheese, fry it in butter, that is something different, kinda fun even. They are perfect to have with fresh salad, dip them in a soup or eat them as it is.
They are fun to make with your kids and can be versatile.
Try making them with cinnamon and butter - simply melt butter, add brown sugar, 2 tablespoons of cinnamon, beat eggs, ½ teaspoon cinnamon and vanilla. Roll, dip in the egg mixture and pan fry in buttered skillet until golden brown. And there you have it - cinnamon and butter french toast roll.
Another idea - Peanut butter and banana french toast rolls. Just replace the cream cheese and edam cheese with peanut butter and sliced banana. Dip in a melted butter and cinnamon.
Strawberry Cream cheese rolls - Replace the ingredients from the recipes above.
