A loaf of bread, a simple batter and your waffle iron are all you need to make these delicious French Toast Waffles. On Sunday morning I used an entire loaf of bread to make these French Toast Waffles, thinking that I was making enough to have some left over for breakfast one day during the week. I underestimated my family’s love of French Toast Waffles as there was only one left (and I only ate one myself)…in hindsight I should have taken some out and put them aside.
The waffle iron cooks the French Toast quickly and if you have a large one you can cook several pieces at a time so you can get it on the table fast. The sugar in the French Toast batter caramelizes where it pressed into the iron and gets crispy like creme brule.
I made browned butter, bourbon and banana sauce with raw sugar (here’s the recipe) to top the French Toast Waffles but you can use your favorite syrup.
French Toast Waffles
- 2 cups Half and Half
- 4 eggs
- ½ cup raw sugar
- 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla
- 16 slices of bread
- 2 tablespoons softened butter or cooking spray
- Heat your oven to 200° Heat your waffle iron.
- Beat half and half, eggs, sugar and vanilla until sugar is dissolved.
- Brush waffle iron with butter or spray with non stick cooking spray
- Dip a slice of bread in batter for about 3 seconds and cook in the waffle iron according to its settings. (as many as can fit in your waffle iron at a time)
- Cook according to the settings on your waffle iron. Place on a wire rack on a sheet pan as you cook the rest of the French Toast Waffles. Keep them warm in the oven until ready to serve.
