Autumn is near and we're craving apples and warm spices. This is an easy breakfast (or snack) that helps to fulfill that craving. Fair warning: if you're serving kids, you may need to make more than you had planned! For variety, substitute any of your favorite jams or nut butters for the apple butter (chocolate hazelnut is fantastic!)
1In a medium bowl, beat together eggs, milk, granulated sugar and salt.
2On a clean, flat surface (such as cutting board), using a serrated knife, cut crusts from bread and discard crusts (or save for bread crumbs.)
3Working with one piece at a time, use a rolling pin to flatten each piece of bread.
4Spread 1 tablespoon apple butter on 3/4 of the slice of bread, leaving a border of plain bread at one end.
5Using a small spoon or fingertip, spread a small amount of the egg mixture onto the plain bread end to help seal the roll.
6Starting at the apple butter end, fold end over and roll up jelly roll style; place on a plate, seam side down, and repeat with remaining bread.
7Melt butter in a skillet, over medium heat.
8One at a time, place each roll up in egg mixture and coat completely; place in skillet seam side down; repeat until all are coated and in skillet. (Watch the skillet carefully and lower heat when butter begins to brown.)
9Turn roll ups to lightly brown all over; remove and place on paper towel for a moment.
10Place on warm plate; sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve immediately.
11Cover and refrigerate leftovers. If there is leftover egg mixture, you may store in refrigerator and use the next day. Recipe may be doubled, tripled etc...
