Perfect Fall Breakfast: Pumpkin-Ricotta French Toast Roll-ups

October 7, 2014

The flavor of pumpkin means fall and with the best season for baking coming around, I knew I just had to make this french toast roll-up flavor.  French toast roll-ups are amazing, but even more amazing with a pumpkin ricotta filling.  Full of fiber and protein , these are the perfect fall breakfast.  Eat them with a hot cup of coffee and watch the leaves fall, ain’t  Nothing better than that.
