  • 1 package Hawaiian Rolls {12 rolls}
  • 5 eggs
  • ½ cup milk {I used 1%}
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ¾ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ cup butter


  1. Cut your Hawaiian Rolls in half and pull them apart into 12 rolls.

  2. Combine your eggs, milk, cream, vanilla and cinnamon in a shallow bowl. Whisk until everything is well combined and a custard-like texture.

  3. Add 2-3 tablespoons of butter to a skillet over medium heat. Add 4-6 slices of Hawaiian roll to the egg mixture and coat both sides thoroughly. NOTE: Make sure to dip the rolls in the egg mixture as you fry it so that your French Toast doesn't get too soggy.

  4. Fry in 3-4 batches {adding more butter to the pan with each batch}. Keep your eye on the heat and know that you may need to turn the heat down a bit as you go. After a few minutes, flip the slices {the bottom will be golden brown and crispy}.

  5. Add the cooked Hawaiian Roll French Toast pieces to a paper towel lined baking sheet. Place into a 200° oven until ready to serve. Serve with warm maple syrup, powdered sugar and fresh berries.

  6. Store leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 3 months.
