Why You’ll Love this Recipe
I am always looking for ways to mix up our morning routine with quick breakfast ideas.
My family loves almost all breakfast foods including pancakes, French Toast and waffles.
In fact, the most popular recipe on my website is for Amazingly Perfect French Toast, and it really is amazing!
My kids and I were experimenting in the kitchen one day, and we wondered what would happen if we cooked a slice of French Toast in a waffle iron. And guess what? It was so good!
Trust me, once you have French Toast that has little pockets to hold syrup, just like a waffle, you might never want to go back to the old way again.

What kind of bread is best for French toast?
The best bread for a classic French toast recipe is a thick slice of bread like Texas Toast or thick slices of brioche or French bread.
But, for this French toast waffle recipe, you will want to use a thinner slice of bread like standard sandwich bread. Cinnamon bread would also be good!

*Ingredient amounts are located in the recipe card at the end of this post.
Eggs-For this recipe, you will need 4 large eggs. Eggs are the main ingredient in French Toast Batter.
Milk-Using milk in the batter, gives it creaminess and helps to keep the outside of the French Toast from tasting like scrambled eggs. Any type of milk will work including skim milk, low-fat milk, or heavy cream.
All-Purpose Flour-Flour helps give substance to the batter.
Sugar-Feel free to adjust the amount of sugar in your batter. My kids like it sweet, but if that does not appeal to you, the amount of sugar can definitely be adjusted. Brown sugar can also be used.
Vanilla Extract-I like to put more than the usual amount of vanilla that is called for in other French Toast Recipes. It enhances the flavor in such a great way.
Slices of Bread: I like to use Texas Toast when I make French Toast but because you will be cooking it in a waffle iron, you may want to use standard sandwich bread.
How to Make French Toast Waffles
 Add the eggs, milk, flour, sugar, vanilla and cinnamon to a blender or food processor. Mix together to make French Toast batter.
 Pour the egg mixture into a shallow dish.
 Heat waffle maker. Use any waffle iron that will fit a slice of bread. Once the waffle iron is ready, spray it with nonstick cooking spray. Dip bread slices in the batter then place bread on the hot waffle iron, and close the lid to cook.
 When the French Toast Waffle has finished cooking, remove it from the waffle iron and enjoy with your favorite toppings.
 You can keep the toast warm by placing it on a rimmed baking sheet in an oven set on the warming function or 200 degrees until you are ready to serve.
