This is so typical.
Why can I not have a kid that loves food?
To be fair. I did make these or my teenager and he loved them (minus the raspberries- he only likes those in smoothies). He won’t often eat breakfast dishes and so there is a distinct lack of them here on My Kitchen Stories. I will just have to borrow my sisters family a few more times in order to bring you a few more breakfast/brunch recipes.
It’s great timing for these rolls. French toast seems to be popular right now, well, it was on pinterest where I first spied these little fellas. Break fast in general is having it’s hay day. Breakfast is the new meal of choice. In shops and on the internet it has never been easier to buy a breakfast cook book. Anyone for braised breakfast kale? What about breakfast lasagna, breakfast tacos, pizzas and casseroles (yep try hash brown breakfast casserole, or sausage, egg and sundried tomato & cheese casserole, or the french toast casserole – true). Breakfast has never been hotter- literally. While I approve of breakfast I can only manage this kind of palaver on the weekend. I am already late for work every morning and I take my breakfast ( yoghurt muesli and fruit ) with me.
By comparison, I guess these little rolls are quite quick and easy if you want to tackle the breakfast degustation during a weekday. My little rolls don’t contain an oversupply of butter or sugar but be my guest, knock yourself out if you want to add more of anything. You can roll them up with fruit or jam or even ricotta. You could also make them savoury…..now there’s a good idea for sure.
