French Toast Roll-ups with Sausage

These French Toast Roll-ups with sausage are filled with warm, savory sausage that’s in bread, dipped in a classic French toast mixture, and cooked to golden-brown perfection.

French Toast Sausage Roll-ups with Sausage

I’m quite sure that breakfast doesn’t get any better than this. I’ve been thinking long and hard about this, and yeah. French Toast Sausage Roll-ups are the best breakfast ever.

We all know that when you have French toast with a side of sausage, that you “accidentally” drizzle some syrup on that sausage, or casually use your fork to shimmy your sausage into syrup that’s already on your plate. I know you’ve done it. You know you’ve done it. So why can’t we just say it out loud?

Sausage and syrup are delicious together.

There, I said it.

It’s just as good as dipping a French fry in ice cream, guys. (Namely Wendy’s fries in a Wendy’s frosty.) If you haven’t tried it, get on it.

….Or wrapping a dill pickle in a slice of American cheese. (Get on that too.)

And speaking of syrup, have you ever dipped your grilled cheese into some? (Don’t knock it ‘til you try it.)

Warm, savory sausage wrapped in fresh bread that's dipped in a classic french toast mixture and cooked to golden-brown perfection. Served with syrup for dunking, this breakfast is perfect for both kids and adults!


  • 8-10 breakfast sausage links, uncooked
  • 8-10 slices white or wheat sandwich bread, soft and fluffy works best
  • 2 eggs
  • ¼ cup milk
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2-3 tablespoon butter, for greasing the pan
  • Maple or Pancake syrup, for serving


  • In a large pan over medium heat, cook the breakfast sausage until golden brown and cooked through, rotating frequently so that all sides are cooked. Set aside to cool slightly.
  • Slice the crusts off of the bread.
  • Whisk the eggs, milk, cinnamon, and vanilla extract together in a small, shallow bowl.
  • Take the bread slices and use your hand to flatten each one against a hard surface. (You can use a rolling pin be careful not to make it too flat.)
  • Take a sausage link and place it at one end of the bread. Carefully roll the bread into a cylinder. Give it a little squeeze to secure it in place and set it aside, seam side down.
  • Dip the rolled bread into the egg mixture until each side is coated.
  • Melt the butter over medium heat in the same skillet that you used to cook the sausage. Place each sausage rollup, seam side-down, in the warm butter. Rotate gently as each side gets to be golden brown.
  • Once the bread is cooked through and browned, remove and serve with syrup for dipping!

  1. Very easy & turned out perfect! Hubby wants to try to air fry next time, but loves them! Thank you

  2. I made this for Mother’s Day Brunch. I used maple mini sausages and it turned out great. Thank you. 

    • You’re very welcome Lesley! Mother’s Day Brunch really is the best, and these are a great choice. I’m so happy you liked them! Thanks so much for the review and Happy Late Mother’s Day to you!💕

  3. With this “5-star” sausage rollup recipe, I store any leftover cooked rollups in the fridge, in an airtight container, or a zip-lock bag for 3-4 days. I also cook extra batches
    and store them in the freezer for 2-3 months. They’re great for snacks or quick breakfast additions! Either way, my reheating results depends on monitoring the reheat status.
    I flash-freeze cooked rollups on a cookie sheet, lined with parchment paper, and then covered with plastic wrap. This ensures they don’t all freeze into one solid block. After about 30 minutes, or when solid, transfer each frozen to a zip-lock freezer bag for flat storage.

    For quick snacks, my rollups are reheated in the microwave. Desired portions are placed on a paper towel-lined plate, covered with another paper towel. This helps to absorb any sausage grease. Reheating is done at 30 second intervals. When the sausage begins to sizzle a bit, mine are ready to eat. Overheating yields a dried out sausage log. No paper towel usage, will result in a soggy/greasy rollup. My preferred reheat method is in the oven. Preheat an oven to 325F, midddle oven rack position. Place “frozen” rollups on a parchment-lined cookie sheet and cover with foil. I cover them with foil to keep them from drying out, and cook from frozen to prevent a soggy rollup.

  4. We’re OBSESSED in the best way possible with this recipe! Turns out amazing every time! We’ve made it well over a dozen times🤗

  5. Hi again Stephanie! I stumbled across this recipe and thought “Perfect for Christmas morning with the quiche I’m going to serve!” I think my boys are going to devour them 😊 Quick question, if I make them ahead of time, do you think they would heat up well in the air fryer? TIA and Merry Christmas!

    • Hi Sara!! I agree, this would go so well with quiche, wow!!! 🙂 I haven’t tried making these ahead of time before so I’m not sure how well they hold up, I might suggest a trial run to test it out just in case. If they hold up well, then I do think the air fryer would be a good way to reheat them, as long as the outside doesn’t get too crisp before the inside has a chance to warm up! 🙂 (A warm oven *might* be a safer bet, but it depends.) My air fryer runs really hot.

  6. This is definitely another one of my faves!!!!!  

  7. Can I freeze and reheat these? If so, how long for?  They look delicious , can’t wait to make them!! 

    • Hi Kelli, I’m sorry for the delay in this response! I haven’t tried freezing these before unfortunately! If you try it I’d love to know how you do! -Stephanie

  8. Have you ever made this recipe using (frozen but cooked – maple flavor) sausage links ? Theyre smaller than raw sausages so maybe use 2 or just make the roll ups smaller ? Your recipe has inspired me to at least experiment with them ! Thanks !

    • Hey Jackie! Sorry about the delay here! I haven’t tried those smaller ones but I totally know which ones you’re talking about and I love those! I’d love to hear how it works out for you, I’m drooling over here!! 🙂 -Stephanie

  9. really easy to make and a hit with my family. Thank you

    • Hi Joss! I’m a little late in responding but I just wanted to say that I’m very happy that your family enjoyed these French Toast Sausage Roll-Ups! They are one of our favorite breakfasts! I hope you had a wonderful holiday season! -Stephanie

  10. Oh yeah! You’re onto something, Stephanie. These rollups look ridiculously good!! Pinning. Talking about unexpected combinations, my son has to have a slice of cheese when he has cake 😏
