Start with King’s Hawaiian Sweet Rolls

Start by slicing the Hawaiian rolls in half, separating each roll individually.

KING’S HAWAIIAN Sweet Rolls make the perfect, bite-sized French toast. Their small, but fluffy, thick slices make it easy to prep, cook, and share with friends and family. But don’t be fooled – each Hawaiian roll packs a deliciously sweet punch.


Create egg mixture

Create the Egg Mixture

In a shallow mixing bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, cinnamon, and vanilla extract together. Continue to mix ingredients together occasionally to ensure its well-blended.

French toast is a fun way to change up your basic breakfast routine, and luckily, it doesn’t take much time to make! 


Dip bread in egg mixture

Dip and Crisp

Next, you’ll quickly dip (rather than soak) each Hawaiian roll in the egg mixture. Dipping your rolls make for less soggy and more crispy French toast. Lay coated Hawaiian rolls on a plate or baking sheet so they’re readily accessible for cooking. When you're ready to cook, put each roll in a frying pan and cook until golden brown for a slight crispiness.

Spend less time shopping and more time enjoying! You can get KING'S HAWAIIAN rolls delivered to your doorstep by ordering from Amazon Fresh or Instacart. Then only thing as easy as this French toast recipe is getting your ingredients without even leaving the house.

Sugar, Spice and Everything Nice!

Let’s sweeten things up! Once the French toast has cooked, sprinkle each with powdered sugar. While your sweet rolls are still warm, drizzle coconut or maple syrup on top.

This French toast recipe is also perfect for brunch or holidays. Easily dress up your French toast with seasonal toppings like cranberries for Christmas or Nutella for Valentine’s Day.
