Key Ingredients

The ingredients for the french toast sandwich are pretty straight forward and simple!

Hawaiian Rolls – a family-size pack of 24 rolls is best for this recipe if you plan to make several full-sized sandwiches. You can also make them slider size.

Eggs – used both in the french toast batter and for the fluffy scrambled eggs. 

Cream – a splash of cream is used in the eggs and as the base for the french toast batter. 

Cinnamon Sugar – some cinnamon sugar adds sweetness and the classic cinnamon flavor to the french toast.

Bacon – cooked to crispy for the sandwich protein.

Cheese –  I use cheddar slices or American cheese slices. You can also use gruyere or your favorite cheese.

Hot Sauce – just a few splashes for the eggs.

Butter – we use some butter for the skillet before cooking the eggs and the french toast.

How to Make French Toast Sandwich

Make the French Toast Batter

In a shallow dish, whisk together the eggs, cream, cinnamon sugar. Whisk it well until the eggs are smooth.

Make the Eggs

In a large skillet over low heat, add two tablespoons of butter. Pour in the egg mixture and cook them low and slow until they are no longer runny but still shiny. Top with a slice of cheese and set aside on a plate. 

Cook the French Toast

In the same skillet, increase the heat to medium-low, add a few more tablespoons of butter. Dunk the french toast into the batter, flipping to coat both sides. Cook it on the skillet for about 2 minutes per side or until each side is toasted.

Assemble the Sandwich

On a plate add the bottom buns. Top it with the eggs, then a layer of crispy bacon, and top it with the top french toast buns. Serve warm with a side of syrup.

How To Freeze and Reheat?

These french toast breakfast sandwiches on Hawaiian rolls are perfect for meal prepping. Once the sandwiches are prepared and assembled, allow them to cool for about 15 minutes until they are warm and no longer hot.

Wrap them individually in parchment paper or cling wrap and then place into a zip top bag or vacuum sealed bag and place into the freezer.

To reheat, simply remove each sandwich from the freezer and place unwrapped in the microwave. Heat on 50% power or defrost mode for 1 minute. Flip the sandwich over and heat at full power for an additional 20 seconds or until warmed through and cheese is melty.
