WHAT ARE CHURROS?

Churros are a traditional dessert and Mexican delicacy and can be customizable for this amazing breakfast dish.

The sweet breakfast consists of a type of dough/bread coated in egg and fried in a skillet before being sprinkled with cinnamon sugar.

Although typically served for dessert, serving this dish with a side of dulce de leche, caramel or melted chocolate is a great way to enjoy a sweet breakfast treat.

INGREDIENTS

french toast churros ingredients, including white bread, eggs, dulce de leche, butter, cinnamon and sugar
easy to make with simple ingredients
  • White bread – any brand
  • Eggs
  • Milk– half and half or heavy cream may be substituted
  • Vanilla 
  • Dulce de Leche– (Cajeta) is a thick sweet caramelized milk mixture (similar to caramel)
  • Butter – you will fry the French toast rolls in butter, real butter is best
  • Sugar – granulated
  • Cinnamon

INSTRUCTIONS


This recipe is a fun and easy to make Mexican- inspired breakfast.

  1. To begin, cut each slice of bread in half and discard the crust. Once you have the bread pieces flattened, grab a rolling pin and begin to work. There’s no need to work out your frustrations here because the bread is relatively soft and requires little effort.
  2. Churro mix should be spread on both sides of each slice of bread. Each piece of bread should be tightly rolled.
  3. Set aside a small bowl to whisk together the milk, egg, sugar, and vanilla extract. Sugar and cinnamon should be combined in a separate bowl or pan.
  4. Pour the milk and egg mixture onto a shallow dish and dip each Churro French Toast Roll-Up into it.
  5. A brief dip is all that’s required! Ideally, we do not want to absorb too much of the liquid.
  6. Fry each roll in hot butter until golden brown and slightly crispy, about 2 minutes per side.
  7. Remove from the pan and roll each roll-up in the cinnamon sugar until completely smothered.

Your kitchen will have a wonderful aroma and you will be more than ready to begin eating. I know they are difficult to resist, but not as difficult to resist as these Pumpkin French Toast Sticks.

EXPERT TIPS

  • These are very rich and make a great snack or easy dessert as well.
  • The best sauce for this recipe is dulce de leche, which is made by slowly heating sugar and milk over a period of several hours for a delicious topping. You may also use caramel and/or whipped cream, if preffered.

Adjustments

Bread– When making this dish, I prefer to use white sandwich bread, although wheat or whole-grain bread will also work well.

Seasonings– These churros are especially delicious in the fall. I even add a bit of pumpkin spice to mine during the autumn months.

Toppings-In addition to dulce de leche, top off these amazing treats with apple pie filling, fried apples, whipped cream, caramel, Nutella, peanut butter, jam, or chocolate sauce. You can use any spread you like in these Churro Rolls.
