French Toast Roll-Ups - a.k.a. "Die Röllchen"

Today is my friend's first wedding anniversary. A year ago, I had the pleasure to attend their official wedding ceremony with a delicious brunch at the beautiful Schlosshotel Patrick Hellmann afterwards. The brunch consisted of a large buffet with the usual offerings of different breads, deli meats, cheeses, yoghurt, müsli, cereals, fruit, etc. And we could also order quite a few interesting dishes made to order including several avocado and egg dishes. However, there was one dish that became really popular - the french toast roll-ups with nutella and strawberries. By the way, this filling was way better than the cream cheese filling, what shall I say? Nutella beats it all :). We started calling them the "Röllchen" and kept ordering more and more of them...

Happy first wedding anniversary, I + B :)


  • 8 slices of white toast bread
  • Nutella (hazelnut-chocolate spread)
  • 100g strawberries
  • 5 tablespoons milk
  • 1 egg
  • 100g sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2-3 tablespoons butter (for frying)


  1. Cut off the crust of the bread slices, then flatten them with a rolling pin. Dice the strawberries. In a shallow dish, beat eggs with milk. On a large plate, mix the cinnamon with the sugar. 
  2. Spread Nutella on the entire surface of the bread slices. Top the front side (the small side) of the bread slice with strawberry pieces, so that about 1/3 of the slice is covered. Starting at the front side of the slice of bread with the strawberries, roll the bread tightly up lengthwise.
  3. Heat up butter in a skillet. Now, dip each toast roll into the egg mixture from both sides, so that it is completely covered. Let the roll drip off briefly and place in the hot skillet with the open side facing down. Fry rolls from each side for 2-3 minutes till slightly brown and crispy. 
  4. Take rolls out of skillet and immediately roll in the sugar-cinnamon mix. Serve warm :) 
Note: You can also use different fillings like honey or a cream cheese mix (but add some lemon and vanilla).
