Cinnamon Cream Cheese Roll Ups is a tasty make-ahead sweet breakfast or brunch recipe. This easy treat tastes much like cinnamon rolls without the wait time of having the yeast dough rise. Cheese Blitz is sometimes called Cream Cheese Cinnamon Rollups because of the sweet creamy filling that’s rolled between layers of crust with a light dusting of a cinnamon-sugar coating.
Cheese Blitz Roll Ups
A cream cheese and sugar mixture fills flattened out sandwich bread. Next, the bread and cheese is dipped in butter and bathed in cinnamon and sugar. At this point, the rolls can be frozen and baked whenever you need them.
For this reason, I make Cheese Blitz often for game day or brunches. They go simply from the freezer to the oven and are so convenient. Do you cook any make-ahead breakfasts?
Another fact I like about this recipe, it’s a good recipe to have children help with. They love to roll the bread flat. Plus, anytime kids can dunk a treat into butter then sugar, it’s a good thing. Additionally, I’ve found when children help in the kitchen they’re more likely to try new food.
Cheese Blitz makes great finger food for brunches and showers!
How to Make Cinnamon Sugar Rollups
Use a loaf of white bread, the fresher the better. Fresh bread will roll flat and stay flat easier.
Cut the crusts off the bread slices.
Roll the bread flat!
The bread slices now about about the thickness of a flour tortilla.
Flat… lots of pictures of flat bread for the best cream cheese roll ups!
Making the cream cheese filling for roll ups
You will need 8 ounces softened cream cheese, 1/2 cup sugar and egg yolk.
The egg yolk is a binder and will keep the cream cheese mixture from melting in the oven and oozing out of the rollups.
Mix it until smooth! It will mix smoother if your cream cheese is at room temperature.
