Tips and tricks:

Use soft bread, because it’s easier to flatten it. 

Non – stick frying pan is the best option for rolls not to get stuck. 

After cooking, remove the remaining butter with a paper towel then add new butter. Cooked this way your rolls will be golden brown. 

The rolls should be coated in a cinnamon sugar mixture as soon as you take them out of the pan, because the mixture will be nicely stuck to them. 

The rolls should be fried in series of 4, taking care that they don’t burn. 

A tip: Don’t keep rolled bread in egg and milk mixture for too long, because  they will absorb too much liquid and get wet inside. You only need to coat them with the mixture from each side.
