French Toast Rollups

1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese, softened
1 Tbsp. ground cinnamon
1 egg yolk
1 c. sugar, divided
3 Tbsp. butter, melted
24 slices white sandwich bread, crusts removed

In medium bowl beat cream cheese, egg yolk and 1/4 cup sugar until smooth; set aside. Roll out each bread slice with a rolling pin. Spread cheese mixture over bread, distributing evenly. Roll up each slice jellyroll-style and place seam-side down on baking sheet. In shallow dish combine remaining 3/4 cup sugar and cinnamon. Brush butter over rollups, then roll in the cinnamon-sugar mixture until completely coated. Repeat with remaining rollups, placing on baking sheet after coating. Cover and freeze for at least two hours. Just before serving bake rollups in preheated 400° oven for 10-12 minutes or until golden. Makes 24 rollups.
