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, and 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.
The recipe started off the same as making classic French toast. 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.
Line a baking sheet with foil (for easy clean up). Dip each piece of bread in the egg mixture, flipping to coat both sides, and lay 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, rather than trying to do each piece as we go.
Heat the waffle iron and, 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.
