First, prepare your bread. Flatten each square piece of bread with a rolling pin or glass. Its best to use soft white bread, not stale bread. Thick slices work fine, but will need a little more elbow grease to make them flat.
Here are the broccoli and cheese ones.
- Use Ripe Fruit -Ripe strawberries will make this dish sweet. If you use sour strawberries, you'll get sour rolls!
- Honey - Like it sweet? In a bowl add some honey and cream cheese together into a cream cheese mixture before spreading. You may also use flavored cream cheese if desired
- Don't Over-stuff the Roll Up - It may be tempting to stuff the roll up with plenty of ingredients, but if you do, it won't seal up nicely
- Have a picky eater? Try grating some of the broccoli and hide it within the cheese
- Depending on the texas toast, it may be too thick to roll , but you can give it your best shot!
- What if we have an egg allergy?
- You can easily omit the egg and milk mixture. Instead roll the bread as instructed and cook in butter.
- Can you pack these strawberry cheese rollups in lunch boxes?
- It is advisable to keep these cold if packing for lunch since this dish has dairy and egg. And ice pack will keep it cool for a few hours. It may affect the overall flavor because it's meant to be eaten warm
- How long can this keep in the fridge?
- This is best fresh, but if you must. I would use jam and cream cheese to extend it's shelf life in the fridge. Make sure they are in an airtight container or sealed plastic bag.
- Can you freeze this recipe?
- I don't advise it. It's great fresh and may be hard to reheat if frozen.
