French Toast Waffles

Why have basic French toast when you can have French Toast Waffles? Use a waffle machine to make a fun and different breakfast this weekend!

We’ve made waffles, and we’ve made French toast, but one morning we decided to make French toast waffles! I’ve seen so many posts with all the different foods that can go in a waffle maker, so decided to give it a try with some bread to start.

It was fun to do something a bit different. The boys liked the French toast better when cooked as a waffle than when we do it on a pan. I found it to be a bit crispier than our usual recipe, and I enjoyed it as well. This may be our new go-to when it comes to French toast!

My original recipe came from my dad who made French toast many mornings, especially if my sister or I had friends stay the night. Then we modified a few things as needed to work with the waffle maker.

Step by Step

In a shallow container, whisk together egg, milk, cinnamon, and vanilla extract. You want a container that is big enough to be able to lay a piece of bread down inside of it.

Dip each piece of bread in the egg mixture. Quickly flip to coat both sides without letting it soak. Lay the pieces out on a baking sheet. We found it easier to do all of the bread at once, then cook it all in the waffle iron.

Heat the waffle iron. When it’s ready, place one piece of bread in the machine and close it. Follow the directions on cooking with your particular waffle maker. We set it to a darker setting than I usually use for waffles and it worked well.

Serve warm topped with powdered sugar, maple syrup, or any other desired toppings.

  1. I have a different recipe for French Toast waffles that I found last week. I will try yours this weekend. I am so grateful to start blogging, besides improving my writing skill, I am becoming a chef as well.

  2. Oh, clever! I bet they are beautifully crisp, and the syrup just pools in the little indentations… So fun.

  3. I wonder if this would work with my waffle iron.. its animal shaped.. i maybe looking for a new waffle iron just to try this. I LOVE french toast!

    1. I think as long as the bread would fit on the shape it would work! Mine is a round machine but the square bread fits within it so I can still make them even though the shape isn’t right.

  4. ahh, french waffles.. is there anything that the french dont do amazingly well? I love the simplicity of this recipe,we need to try it at home!

  5. OK this may be our christmas morning breakfast! Husband is over monkey bread and has requested something new and this is right up our alley!

  6. I love waffles for breakfast and snacks I really want to make this French Toast Waffles for my weekend off I will save this post! Thanks for sharing.

  7. Great idea! I would never have thought of making french toast waffles but I love french toast and I love waffles so these sound perfect!
