Mouthwatering Monday: Cinnamon Roll-Ups

We’re all about some breakfast food at our house, especially the kind with lots of cream cheese and sugar.  🙂

24 slices(1 loaf minus the “butts”), crusts removed
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 egg yolk
1 1/4 c. granulated sugar, divided
1 TBsp cinnamon
1 stick unsalted butter


Cinnamon rollups

Roll the bread slices flat with a rolling pin.

Mix the cream cheese, egg and 1/4c. sugar.

Spread mixture onto flattened slices.
(One smallish spoonful on each slice.)

Mix 1 c. sugar and 1TBsp cinnamon in a shallow bowl.

Melt butter in a shallow bowl.

Dunk each roll-up in the butter, to coat.

Roll in cinnamon-sugar.

Arrange on baking sheet.

Chill overnight.
(Really 2 hours is plenty…but I usually make them the night before.)

Preheat oven to 400°F and bake for 9-12 minutes.

Serve warm.

    I was just telling Chris That I wanted something sweet to go with our breakfast on Thanksgiving. This is perfect! Plus, being able to make it the night before is a bonus. Thanks for sharing.
