Homemade bread is great, but sometimes you just want something more than plain old buttered toast. Behold the French toast waffle. For those mornings when you can’t decide if you want French toast or a waffle...you can have both!
I love this idea because it comes together a little bit faster than waffles and you don't have to deal with any potential batter spillage. I know I’m not the only one who’s over estimated how much waffle batter to put in my waffle maker.
This should be a fun one for the kids and the adults too. Try it soon!
French Toast Waffles Recipe
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ teaspoon kosher salt
4 slices bread, sliced ½ inch thick
Powdered sugar, optional
Fresh berries, optional
Maple syrup. optional
- Preheat your waffle iron
- In an 8x8 baking dish (or any flat, shallow dish), beat eggs slightly. Add milk, vanilla extract and salt. Beat to combine. Dip each side of the bread in the egg mixture long enough for it to absorb some of the egg mixture.
- Butter the waffle iron generously and place the bread in the center of the waffle iron. Close the waffle iron and let the french toast cook for 2-4 minutes, depending on your prefered level of browness. Repeat with the remaining slices of bread.
- Once your French toast waffle is done, plate it up and top with powdered sugar. Garnish with fresh berries and mint if you have it. Serve with maple syrup.
