French Toast Waffles

 

French Toast Waffles

This recipe was such a fun and easy way to whip up some French toast in a flash. It starts out as traditional French toast but is then cooked in a waffle maker for a unique twist. I have to admit that I have owned a waffle maker for years now but have only used it a few times. Now I just might use it every time we have a hankering for French toast.

Sometimes French toast can be a bit soggy and I don’t dig soggy. Cooking the bread in the waffle maker makes it all brown and crispy with a bit of softness in the square indents. Mmmm. Definitely an improvement on the original in my opinion!

French Toast Waffles
Recipe from Slice of Southern

Cooking Spray
1 cup fat-free milk
1 tablespoon Splenda (or white sugar)
1 tablespoon butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 large eggs
16 (1/2-inch-thick) slices day-old French bread (I used thick-cut Texas Toast bread)

1. Coat waffle iron with cooking spray, and preheat.

2. Combine milk and the next 5 ingredients (milk through eggs), stirring well with a whisk. Place bread in a 13 x 9-inch baking dish; pour milk mixture over bread, turning to coat. Let stand 5 minutes.

3. Place bread slices on hot waffle iron. Cook for 5 – 7 minutes or until done; repeat the procedure with the remaining bread. Keep the cooked French toast in a 170 degree F oven while the remaining bread is cooking.
