You guys, I am so in love with these Flatbread French Toast Pinwheels (Or Flatbread French Toast Roll Ups), I can’t even tell you! But of course I am going to try…

The inspiration came when I watched THIS VIDEO by Flatout Flatbread.  My mind began to race over the newfound French Toast possibilities when made with Flatbread!   It was literally 10:30 at night and Patrick was ready for bed but I begged him not to brush his teeth yet because I HAD to make Flatbread French Toast Roll Ups.

In just minutes my excitement was rewarded as I discovered Flatout Flatbread keeps its shape and rolls so much easier than bread plus you don’t have to roll the bread thin or cut the crust off, ladeedadeeda – you simply, dip, pan fry, and roll!   The thinness of the Flatbread combined with the French Toast breading reminds of a French Toast Crepe – can you image the delicoiusness?!  You are just going to have to try them…

For my first batch, I just dunked the soft Flatout Flatbread in batter like in the video, rolled them up doused with syrup.  Divine.  I brought them up to Patrick and we both shoveled them into our mouths like we just discovered the new best French Toast recipe.  He was more than happy he waited to brush his teeth.

 Now you can eat these Flatbread French Toast Roll Ups plain just like we did that night, or you can stuff them with any of your favorite fillings- Nutella, lemon and powdered sugar, peanut butter, blueberries, bananas, raspberries, etc. – anything you would stuff inside a crepe then just roll them up!

If you want to make these Flatbread French Toast Roll Ups extra fancy and turn them into pinwheels for special occasion breakfast or brunch, you would make them like a roll up, then slice into ½ inch pieces then secure with a toothpick – that’ it!

For this pinwheel spin, my favorite spring and summertime combination is strawberries and cream cheese, so I made Strawberries and Cream Cheese Pinwheels by smothering the Flatout Flatbreads with cream cheese, layering with thinly sliced strawberries and generously dusting with powdered sugar and drizzling (or dousing) with syrup.  These French Toast Pinwheels would also be divine with flavored syrups like Raspberry or Blueberry – drool…

Flatbread French Toast Roll Ups or French Toast Pinwheels  – just when you didn’t think French Toast could get any better!   now go make and get giddy.

Ingredients

  • 1 pkg. Flatout Original Flatbread (7 total)
  • Butter to grease skillet
  • toothpicks (optional)

French Toast Batter*

  • 5 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Strawberries and Cream (optional)

  • 12 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 1 – 1 1/2 lbs strawberries, thinly sliced**
  • Powdered sugar

To Serve

  • Powdered sugar
  • syrup

Instructions

  • In a long shallow dish, whisk together all of the French Toast Batter ingredients. Set aside.
  • Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium high heat then reduce to medium. Grease with butter.
  • Working with one flatbread at a time, submerge in Batter, let excess drip off and add to skillet. Cook for 45-60 seconds on each side or until golden. Remove to a plate and repeat until all flatbreads are cooked. There will be batter remaining.
  • At this point, you can roll up the French Toast Flatbreads and serve plain with syrup or fill with any of your favorite toppings – Nutella, peanut butter, coconut, bananas, blueberries, etc. and garnish with powdered sugar and syrup OR proceed to make the Strawberries and Cream below:
  • STRAWBERRIES AND CREAM: Evenly spread 2 heaping tablespoons cream cheese over the top surface of each French Toast Flatbread then evenly layer with strawberries. Sprinkle strawberries with 1 teaspoon powdered sugar, roll Flatbread up tightly and sprinkle with additional powdered sugar.
  • Serve whole for French Toast Roll Ups or slice into ½ inch slices and serve as Pinwheels. Secure Pinwheels with a toothpick if serving on a platter. Best served with syrup.

Notes

*The batter has extra eggs and less milk than traditional batter because it doesn’t get absorbed as much into the flatbread – it will not taste overly egg-y.
**You can get away with 1 lb. strawberries if you space them farther apart but for more fully loaded pinwheels, I recommend 1 ½ pounds strawberries.
***Feel free to get creative and stuff your Roll Ups/Pinwheels with anything your can imagine.
****Try drizzling with flavored syrups such as Blueberry, Strawberry or Raspberry or filling with flavored cream cheese!

    Hi Jen! I’m not a breakfast person but it would not take much to convince me to eat these when I wake up! Could I have a side of bacon too? 🙂

    I could have this type of breakfast morning, noon and night!! It sounds scrumpdelicious!! Just to pop one or two or ten of those in my mouth — YUM! Great recipe and thank you for sharing!!

    • Jen says

      You are so welcome Marisa, thank YOU for commenting! These are also great because you can make the batter ahead of time so they literally take minute to make. I think you grandkids would love them! xo

    Hi Jen . These French toast pin wheels look awesome. Can they be made ahead? I’m having company for the weekend and it would be so helpful to make some or all of the recipe ahead. Thank you!

    • Jen says

      Hi Mary, yes these can be made ahead of time and what a fun company idea! My husband tried them the next day after being refrigerated and loved them. Before serving, however, I would microwave them for 10 seconds or so which will soften the French Toast and the cream cheese again. Hope this helps and enjoy!

    Dear Jen,
    These french toast pinwheels present so beautifully and look absolutely delicious! I am not familiar with Flatout Flatbread. It looks like it comes in fairly large flat sheets. Is there anything that you can suggest that would be a comparable substitute? I have to be gluten free and I have been able to find gluten free flour tortillas. Do you think they would work? Thanks for getting my mind spinning!

    • Jen says

      Hi Cindy, yes I think gluten free tortillas would work great!
