Hawaiian Roll French Toast

Average ()
The mini slices are sweet, fluffy and (obviously) kid-pleasing.

In our humble opinion, French toast is the superior sweet breakfast food. It’s versatile (use whatever stale bread you have!), balanced (carbs, protein, fat and, ahem, syrup) and easy to make on a whim. Upgrade your next batch with our recipe for Hawaiian roll French toast, which uses the lightly sweetened rolls to add rich flavor. As an added bonus, the slices are mini, which means you can eat more.


3 large eggs

½ cup milk

½ tablespoon sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

½ teaspoon kosher salt

Unsalted butter, as needed

12 pull-apart Hawaiian rolls, halved vertically

Powdered sugar and maple syrup, for serving


1. In a shallow bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, sugar, vanilla and salt.

2. Melt the butter in a skillet over medium-low heat. Working in batches, dip the Hawaiian roll slices into the egg mixture, turning to coat; allow the excess custard to drip off before transferring to the skillet.

3. Cook, working in batches as needed, until the slices are golden brown on one side, about 4 minutes. Flip and cook until the remaining side is golden brown, about 3 minutes more. Repeat until all the slices are cooked.

4. Serve the Hawaiian roll French toast topped with powdered sugar and maple syrup.
