Updated with better ingredients and easier instructions!
There is a war in my head – the War for French Toast and also the War for Waffles. The battle is real, friends.
One of my life goals is to actually see how many things I can cook in the waffle iron. When someone told me I could make my French Toast in there, I was ALL ABOUT THAT! This marriage of French Toast and Waffles is a beautiful thing – the yumminess of French Toast + the waffle holes for syrup. Waffle French Toast = YES!
Use What Bread You Have
I usually make this when I have bread that’s almost too far gone – not moldy but also not great for sandwiches – you know, toast bread. It works GREAT!
I’ve made it successfully with sandwich bread, cinnamon raisin bread, banana bread, just about anything goes! Also, it is super easy to double or even triple, based on your family size!
To make this treat you need bread, eggs, vanilla, milk, and cooking spray. You can use any type of bread you have – white bread, wheat bread, hot dog buns, hamburger buns, Italian bread. I’ve not tried biscuits yet, but English muffins also work great!
Simple to Make
First, heat up your waffle iron. In a dish that’s big enough for your bread to lay down in, beat your eggs. They’ve been bad. They must be beaten. Add your milk and vanilla. Mix well. Dip your bread into the egg mixture, coating each side. Let it get good and coated, but don’t let it soak like a sponge. If you do, when you try to pick it up it will break off and fall on the counter, making a big ole mess.
Spray the waffle iron with a cooking oil spray, and then lay the soaked bread in and shut the lid. Cook the French Toast until it’s brown. This may be a bit of trial and error. You’ll know it’s done when the toast doesn’t stick when you try to open the lid.
