For the filling:
- 1 cup whole milk ricotta cheese

- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 cup Land O Lakes butter
- Garnish with powdered sugar
1Combine all the filling ingredients into a bowl and mix well. Set aside.
2Flatten the bread slices with a rolling pin and spread 1 tablespoon of filling over each bread slice to 1/2 inch from the sides and to 1 inch at the top.
3Roll up the bread slices, starting from the bottom.
4Place the milk, eggs, and cinnamon in a shallow bowl and whisk until combined.
5Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a skillet over medium heat until sizzling.
6Dip 4 bread rolls into the egg mixture, then place in a skillet.
7Cook, turning occasionally, for 3 minutes or until lightly browned on all sides.
8Repeat with the remaining butter and bread rolls; wiping out the skillet between batches.
