Potato Stuffed Bread Rolls

Image
Breakfast is the first and most important meal of the day. It is said that we have to eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a beggar. The menu varies from place to place. Globally there are very wide range of preparations and ingredients that are associated with breakfast. Me being south Indian, out typical breakfast consists of idly, dosa, upma, poori etc.... Now that I am living in USA for quite sometime now, we have changed our menu to cereal, toasted bread, oatmeal, scrambled eggs etc.... I sometimes mix and match the menu and ingredients involved in it. 

Today's recipe is one such mix and match dish of french toast and bread roll. I had some left over  potato which I used for making parathas. Here I will cutting the edges of bread then roll it to make it thin. Fill it with potato and fold it to dip in  beaten eggs. This dish was so delicious and filling. I served it with some sliced avocados too to make it more rich and healthy.
