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.
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.)
I’m sure you have your favorites too, right? Because some foods are just meant to be together and society can’t tell us any differently! Now who’s with me!?
So. Now that we’ve covered that, let me just tell you, that the one thing better than dipping a sausage in syrup, is dipping a sausage wrapped in French Toast, in syrup. I can’t even like, describe the magnificent-ness that is this recipe. (Yes, I am allowed to make up words.)
Needless to say, this one goes right on my list of all-time favorites.

French Toast Sausage Rollups
- 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
- 1 tbs 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.
- While the sausage cooks, slice the crusts off of the bread.
- Whisk the eggs, milk, cinnamon, and vanilla extra 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 the edge of a flattened piece of bread. Carefully roll the sausage up, taking the bread with it. Give it a little squeeze in your first to secure the bread in place and set it aside, seam side down.
- Carefully dunk the sausage rollups into the egg mixture, until each side is coated.
- Melt the butter over medium heat within the same skillet that you cooked the sausage in. Place each sausage rollup, seam side-down, in the warm butter. Rotate gently as each side gets to be golden brown.
- Once the sausage rollups are all cooked and browned, carefully remove them from the pan and serve them with syrup for dipping!
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.
This is definitely another one of my faves!!!!!
Ahhhhhh this is a GREAT one that I feel like no one knows about, thank you so much for rating it- I am so glad you like it!
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
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
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
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 😏
OMG no way! Cheese with Cake?!!?!? That’s definitely a new one, how did that even come about!? LOL. That’s hilarious. I like your son!
