I vividly remember a Mother’s day a few years ago when I forgot to my Mom a gift the night before so I thought it was a great idea to make her sticky buns for the next morning at 11:30 pm. It was all going pretty well until I put them in the oven and fell asleep somehow, needless to say I woke up two hours later after I smelled something burning. My mom woke up and asked me what that smell was, at least she appreciated the effort! It took me about an hour to clean up and on Mother’s Day morning I went to the local supermarket and bought sticky buns. It’s clear that making sticky buns is not my happy memory for me, until now. Yes friends, the French Toast Rollups are back in action, and these are the best yet!

Sticky Bun French Toast Rollups are my favorite kind of French Toast Rollup, sticky bun filling rolled up in bread and then dipped in egg wash and pan-fried in a skillet, then topped with honey or rolled in cinnamon-sugar.

Now if you think that sounds and looks amazing, wait until you try it!  After one bite, you’ll never want regular french toast again.  You can thank me later!
