It’s that time of year again when Facebook is full of pinteresting ways to show off your kid going to school for the first time this year. While everybody looks dressed up, clean, and happy on the first day, you and I both know this isn’t really how it goes. The transition is hard. Let’s me honest, if I get 3 of my 4 kids ready on time it is a success. We never look this good again. Today, we are making blueberry french toast roll ups.
One way my family manages to get back into school shape is teaching the kids to make their own breakfasts. We do large batches and then freeze them. So when they are still sleepy in the morning all they need to do is nuke one of these pre-made breakfasts and off they go. We actually make this our Sunday afternoon routine. We go to church then come home to cooking and football. This post gives your kids the directions they need to make the back to school breakfast blueberry french toast roll ups.

Maybe you would even want this as a tailgating recipe! I bet this would make an awesome salad for the big game this weekened! Check out other tailgating recipes here.
This a very simple recipe that my 7 and 9 year old’s could do almost completely by themselves. You will need:
- White bread
- 1 egg
- cinnamon and sugar
First, cut the crust off of the bread and flatten them with your hand.
Spread Nutella on one side of bread and sprinkle on the blueberries.
Whisk the egg in a bowl. Then roll up each piece of bread so that the blueberries and Nutella are on the inside. Then drag the roll up through the egg coating it.
Briefly let the egg soak into the bread. Then roll it into the cinnamon and sugar.
Spray a hot pan with a non-stick spray and fry the french toast roll ups.
These can be enjoyed hot, or freeze them for later. My kids take saran wrap or zip lock bags and put them in the freezer for later.
