In a bowl, combine brown sugar, melted butter, maple syrup and chopped pecans. Mix well. Place the mixture into the freezer for 5 minutes or until it hardens. Don’t let it freeze though. If you do, you won’t be able to work with it.
Meanwhile: Roll each bread slice until thin. Spread a thin layer of cream cheese over. Take out the pecan mixture, give it a mix and spread about 2 teaspoons of this mixture along one of the edges.
Roll into a sausage and transfer onto a plate. Repeat with the rest of them.
In another bowl, beat the eggs with milk.
Melt butter in a skillet or frying pan and when ready, dip each roll in the egg mixture. Cook on medium high until nice golden brown on all sides.
Serve warm with a drizzle of maple syrup, honey or with berries of your choice.
White bread can be substituted with brown bread.
The number of rolls you get out of this recipe may vary slightly. This will depend on the size of bread you use (the slices I used were 4-inch/10cm wide).
The cooking time is an estimate and can vary. It should not take long though. If making these in 2 batches, I recommend wiping the pan clean before adding more butter in.
Step 1-3 can be made a day ahead and the rolls can be stored in the fridge in an air-tight container until the following morning. The post has a detailed explanation and I recommend reading that, if in doubt.
The nutritional information can vary depending on the products you use. Also note that the calorie count will be lower as you won’t use all the egg mixture and also the butter used in the filling will leak out while the rolls are being cooked.
