Let me introduce you to the French Toast Roll Up that was destined to exist. French toast brings a smile to my face, and bacon makes me beam with joy. So, naturally, a combination of the two was a must.

Roll Ups Bacon French Toast Roll Ups

A while back, I shared my delectable Ham & Cheese French Toastie Roll Ups – a delightful version of French toast that you can enjoy with your hands, reminiscent of ham and cheese toasties.

After the success of those roll ups, I couldn’t resist creating a bacon version. I mean, who can resist the irresistible aroma of sizzling bacon in the morning, especially if you may have indulged in a bit too much wine the night before? If only we could bottle that smell and wake up to it every day. Alas, that might be a cruel tease without bacon to devour.

Now, let’s talk about these Bacon French Toast Roll Ups; they are simply the bomb! Picture crispy bacon embraced by bread dipped in a luscious French toast egg mixture, then pan-fried to a heavenly golden brown. For those of us lacking self-restraint (like me), each roll up disappears in just two bites and five seconds.

You might think the process looks tedious, but I assure you, it’s a breeze. No tedious tasks here; I don’t have time for that. Just make sure to use fresh sandwich bread from the supermarket, not the fancy artisanal types like sourdough and ciabattas. Those won’t work well for these roll ups.

The key to success lies in using fresh sandwich bread because stale bread won’t hold up when rolled. It tends to crumble due to its dryness. For the best results, I recommend using bread that’s no more than a day old. If your bread is 2 to 3 days old, I’ve included tips in the recipe notes for remoistening the bread with extra egg mixture.

I can confidently say that these roll ups are insanely delicious on their own. However, if you desire to elevate them to another level of awesomeness, I suggest serving them with Nacho Cheese Dip. Prepare to be speechless.

I could go on and on about these incredible Bacon French Toast Roll Ups, but I won’t hold you any longer. You need the recipe, and you need it now. Trust me; you won’t regret making these delectable treats.

Enjoy the deliciousness!

  • 6 slices fresh soft sandwich bread (I used white, but you could use wholemeal, wholegrain etc) (note 1)

  • 6 slices of streaky bacon , rind removed (note 3)

  • 1 tbsp butter

  • 1 egg (large) (note 4)

  • 2 tbsp milk (full cream or low fat)

  • Pinch of salt


  • Nachos Cheese Dip


Begin by cutting the crusts off the bread slices.
Take a rolling pin and roll back and forth on each piece of bread about 3 or 4 times to flatten it out. The fresh bread will become a bit sticky during this process.
In a dish or bowl large enough for a roll up to lie flat, combine the egg, milk, and salt. Whisk the mixture with a fork until well combined.
Heat a large pan over high heat; no oil is required as the bacon is fatty.
Place the streaky bacon in the pan and sear each side until it is browned but not crispy. If the bacon becomes too crispy, it will crumble when rolled up.
Take one piece of bacon and place it in the middle of each flattened bread slice.
Roll up the bread, ensuring the seam side is facing down. Lightly press down to help the roll-up stay in place.
Wipe the pan clean and add butter to it. Return the pan to heat.
Take one roll-up and dip it into the egg mixture, then shake off any excess. Enclose your fist around it (lightly) and twist the roll-up a few times back and forth. This will help rub the egg mixture into the roll-up and ensure the seam remains sealed. Repeat this process with the remaining roll-ups.
Place the roll-ups in the pan and cook, rotating them, for about 3 to 4 minutes or until all sides are golden brown.
Remove the cooked Bacon French Toast Roll Ups from the pan and serve immediately. Optionally, serve them with warmed Nachos Cheese Dip for a delicious dipping experience.


For this recipe, fresh bread is essential, unlike what I usually suggest for french toast recipes where stale bread is preferred. Fresh bread compresses better when flattened with a rolling pin, and it sticks to itself when rolled up, helping to seal the seam. Using even slightly stale bread requires more effort to keep them rolled up, as stale bread tends to spring back and is less pliable, often falling apart during the rolling process. Artisan breads like sourdough or hard Italian breads such as ciabatta won't work well with this recipe; it is best suited for soft sandwich bread. While I've tried making these roll-ups with slightly stale bread before, I found that they tend to unravel easily. To overcome this, I came up with a solution. I doubled the egg mixture and dipped each slice of bread quickly in the mixture before rolling it up. After rolling it up, I dipped it in the egg mixture again as instructed in the recipe. The double egg dip adds moisture back into the bread, making it more pliable to stay rolled up and seal the seam effectively. This recipe calls for streaky bacon because of its suitable shape for rolling up. Streaky bacon has strips of fat running through it, and it is commonly found in Australia, where middle bacon is prevalent. Nowadays, streaky bacon can also be found at supermarket delis. In the United States, streaky bacon is the most common variety. The surface area of these roll-ups that needs to be coated with the egg mixture is considerably smaller than traditional french toast. Therefore, using 1 egg should be sufficient for 6 roll-ups, assuming you use large eggs. However, if you have small eggs, I recommend doubling the egg mixture.
