We recently posted these Strawberry and Cinnamon French Toast Roll Ups on the blog – and this is their non identical twin – the savory version. If you’re squarely in the savory camp, we also have this yummy recipe for Savory Herb French Toast. In this recipe, we have a little cheese, a little bacon, rolled tightly into a nice little log and then baked where the tops get a little crispy which is my favorite part. I like to top mine with extra butter when it’s hot, but if you’re into sweet and savory stuff you can use syrup. I would because I also like blueberry bagels and vegetable cream cheese. :)

Savory French Toast Roll-Ups
