2 slices whole grain bread
2 Tbsp light cream cheese, softened
1 Tbsp icing sugar
1 Tbsp butter, melted
2 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon
Preheat toaster oven to 350. (Can also be made in a regular oven) Line small, flat oven safe dish with parchment paper, set aside.
Cut off bread crusts. Using a rolling pin or heavy glass, roll bread out so it is thin.
In a small bowl, combine cream cheese and icing sugar until well mixed. Spread evenly on 2 slices of bread.
Roll up, jelly roll style, gently pressing to seal seam.
Using a pastry or basting brush, brush all over with melted butter.
In a small dish, combine sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle evenly over the bread that has been brushed with the melted butter. Place on prepared baking tray, seam side down.
Bake for approx 7 minutes, gently flip over, and bake 7 minutes more.
Remove from oven and let sit for 2 - 3 minutes. Eat as is or slice in half and serve. (Be careful, filling will be hot!)
Who knew boring old bread could be transformed into something so decadent? I imagine making a sundae out of this by topping with a scoop of frozen yogurt and some caramel sauce. Pretty sure that would ruin me entirely for ever eating toast "the old way" ever again.
Oh well...it's a risk I'm willing to take.
