Sooooo… Do you like your mother-in-law?

Come on, be honest!

I like mine. For the most part.

Then there’s the other part; “Oh no, my son has to work!?! 8 hours a day?! But, what about his nap?? Oh my poor boy…”

Or, “Did you eat your dinner, son?” .. He’s 35.

And she lives oceans away. Literally. ~I’m doing the Mike Seaver “YES!!!”~

Okay. Let’s be nice.

She, for the most part, is a great lady, and she is one of the best cooks I have met. Seriously, this lady can bring it in the kitchen.

Back in September of 2011 we went to visit them in Macedonia. The day after we arrived, we woke up to a buffet of every Macedonian breakfast dish that exists; cheese spreads, smoked meats, fresh eggs, as well as savory french toast (except we don’t call it French Toast – we just call it Fried Bread :)) and these Nutella French Toast Rollups.

At first, when she brought them out, I thought they were churros. Don’t they look like churros?

I was so impressed with this version of French Toast because this was just plain delicious. I mean, these rollups are amazing. Or more like aaaaaahhhhhhmazing! I just kept stuffing my face with them. I probably had about six, and I only stopped because we were not at home, where I would have had the entire plate. Secondly, they are very easy to put together, and they take just a few minutes to cook.

Last week, while Skyping with her, I asked if she would mind if I shared her recipe on here. I think she flew to cloud nine when I said that. She was really excited, and she felt honored. I think my the-best-daughter-in-law duty is done for the next year or so.

I am going to give you a recipe for 12 of these, but I think you should double it if your household includes more than one person. Just sayin’. And, you’ll see. You will probably have to get up half-way through breakfast to make some more.

Another thing. Do you have vanilla sugar? Because if you do, you will want to use that instead of the powdered sugar. Trust me.

Nutella spread on slices of bread, rolled up, and fried in butter - fabulous breakfast treat!
Servings: 4
Calories: 454 kcal
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 12 sandwich-bread slices (I use Whole Wheat by Pepperidge Farms)
  • Nutella
  • 4 tablespoons butter , divided
  • 1/4 cup Vanilla Sugar
  • or
  • You can use Powdered Sugar
  1. In a medium bowl whisk together the milk, heavy cream, egg, and vanilla; set aside.
  2. Cut the crust from the bread.
  3. Flatten the bread slices with a rolling pin; make them as flat as possible.
  4. Spread Nutella on each bread slice and roll up the bread, lightly pinching the seam to secure.
  5. Place 2 tablespoons butter in a frying pan and melt over medium heat.
  6. Dip the rollups in the egg mixture, and place in frying pan. You will most likely have to do this in batches.
  7. Cook until golden brown, about two minutes; flip to the other side and continue to cook for another minute or so.
  8. Add the rest of the butter, and continue to cook until all rollups are done.
  9. If you have Vanilla Sugar, put it in a shallow dish, and once the rollups are done cooking, roll them in the sugar until covered.
  10. If you do not have Vanilla Sugar, dust the rollups with Powdered Sugar.
  11. Serve immediately.

    I just made these about 1/2 hour ago and they’re all gone! I grew up bringing Nutella sandwiches to school. I don’t think I’ll ever stop eating Nutella. Thanks for sharing this great recipe!

  2. Carolyn

    I love the Mcedonia cuisine, bland but delicious! We were stationed in Macedonia for a year and a half! I will have to try these and I think they will be a hit with my 3yr old daughter!!

  3. I never had the honor of meeting my mother-in-law and one of my regrets is missing out on the baked goods she was apparently good at (her parents owned a bakery in Germany).

    These rollups would definitely not have lasted long around here. They’re awesome!

  4. Lora @cakeduchess

    oh, yes! Nutella! And yes, I do love my mother-in-law. She spoils all of us. And she does still ask my hubs what he ate (hahaha!)She has to keep tabs on me and make sure he’s well-fed;)These are super!:)

  5. What a lucky DIL to have a MIL that serves you such a breakfast! These rollups are to die for! I could easily eat 12 of them, so I guess I’ll have to double it so Bobby can have something to eat.

  6. Ok I’m so interested in Macedonian breakfast spread. I hope you would show us how you eat breakfast! I love breakfast… Your MIL story was timely, my MIL is coming next Monday. We get along okay, but I always feel nervous! xD

  7. Man, Kate, these look amazing.

    My mantra, when the going gets rough, is “she raised a wonderful son . . . she raised a wonderful son” but I don’t think I’d need to be muttering that under my breath while eating these.


  8. I adore my mother-in-law, she is truly wonderful! Nice job rockin’ the daughter-in-law of the year award, yay!!! Seriously this recipe looks beyond yummy! I would have eaten the whole plate too:-) Hugs, Terra

    I am so doing this!!!!! I’ve never seen this before and as you know I’m from Macedonia. They have come a long way 😉 lol

  10. Ok, I am going to be the best Auntie ever when I have the family over for brunch on Easter weekend! I had been trying to come up with something jazzy that kids would adore since the rest of the menu is more adult-oriented.

    Fun fun .. Lovely pictures…

  11. OH…MA…GAH! Kate, what are you doing to me? It’s spring and I’m trying (trying!) to be good and all paleo…you’re gonna make me go off the rails on a crazy train of carbs, LOL! For a treat, I must make these for The Big Lug. He’ll think he’s died and gone to heaven! We just LUUURRVE Nutella! xo

    My mom-inlaw is a good cook too-but she’s funny-when I ask her for a particular recipe and what it entails she usually says “just eyeball it I don’t measure!” Gee,that helps!
