Ingredients

  • 1 loaf square white bread. Sara Lee White Bread has the perfect texture
  • 1 small can Libby's Easy Pumpkin Pie Mix – *see notes
  • 1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice optional
  • 4 ounces Cream Cheese
  • 2 eggs -
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup Cinnamon Sugar
  • Oil & butter for frying - *see notes
  • Powdered or confectioners sugar for dusting the roll-ups

Instructions

  1. Cut the crust off of each bread slice.
  2. Roll each slice of bread flat.
  3. /4 in from one end of the bread, spread a thin layer of cream cheese 1-inch wide across the width of the bread.
  4. Spread 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie mix over the cream cheese.
  5. Starting at the end with the pumpkin & cream cheese, roll the bread tightly into a cigar shape. Set aside until the butter/oil is hot and the egg mixture is ready.
  6. In a shallow bowl, combine eggs, milk and vanilla - whisk until well combined.
  7. Place the oil or butter (or both) in the skillet and bring to a medium-high heat, but not hot enough for the butter to burn.
  8. Dip each roll-up into the milk/egg mixture, then place seam-down in the hot skillet. Cook 5-6 roll-ups at one time.
  9. Let the roll-ups cook on one side then turn as needed until all sides are cooked.
  10. Remove from the skillet and immediately roll in cinnamon-sugar.
  11. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

*There are several ways to cook roll-ups. I used a mixture of oil and melted butter and enough to come about 1/4 way up the roll-ups so the result was more like cooking do-nuts. The second way is to fry them in butter - more similar to cooking French Toast - add more butter as needed. The third way is to bake them, but I did not like the result as well (of course).

*If Libby's Easy Pumpkin Pie Mix (the kind with the pie spices already mixed in) can't be found, use Libby's 100% Pumpkin and add spices as if for making pumpkin pie - check the recipe on the back of the can.
