waffled french toast

I'm not sure why this had never occurred to me before...but my sister Kathy told me that she often made french toast on the waffle iron. Why not?

    We've had them a few times now...and love 'em! Use your favorite french toast recipe....use any bread that appeals to you...and give it a go.

    I like to use a somewhat custardy dipping batter....sort of a cross between french toast and waffles. This recipe is perfect for four large 'french toasted' waffles.

    French Toast Waffles

    • 1 cup flour
    • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 3 eggs
    • 1 cup milk
    • 4 large slices bread (8 small)

    1. Preheat waffle maker and spray surface with non-stick cooking spray.

    2. In large bowl, whisk eggs until frothy, then add remaining ingredients and whisk until well mixed.

    3. Dip 1 slice of bread into mixture and turn to cover both sides. Place in waffle maker and cook until golden brown.

      Serve with sausage and syrup...

    ...or loaded with strawberries and whipping cream. They are a great twist on an old favorite!

    We had a skiff of fresh snow overnight...it looks like the perfect day to accomplish something in the office. Oh....so many possibilities! The thing with having an office/sewing room combination is that it's a little difficult to concentrate on completing the employee T4 slips for the business...when there's a fun project happening on the sewing machine. We'll see what the day brings.

    Enjoy the day...


    1. will you please put the toast in an envelope and send it to Sweden? please?

    2. What a great idea, all I need is a waffle iron.
      I agree about the projects. I have a seperate scrapbook/sewing room and lately my housework has been suffering.

    3. Great idea. My mouth is watering just looking at your photo. Thanks for the recipe.

    4. Oh, those look good! Will they be showing up on the other blog? I need to try that!

    5. I love waffles. Have not made them in awhile. ARe those strawberries fresh? (under the snow?)

    6. Oh, that's so cool. I never thought to do that. When you said waffled french toast I thought you made a waffle, dipped it in egg mixture and put it back in the waffle iron. Wow....that would be crazy.

    7. That looks yummilicious...

      Now it's my turn for true confessions...I don't own a waffle maker. How embarrassing... ;>

    8. I've a baby napping and I'm taking quick peeks around the neigborhood. . .your waffles look so yummy.

    9. Mmmmm...the best of both worlds! I just wrote a post about how coffee is good for us! Now a hot waffle/fench toast lunch and a cup of coffee sounds good to me!

    10. Such a fabulous idea. You've made me hungry. I see the snow still falling on your screen. It is preey out, but I had hoped the snow was gone for the year. Enjoy your office day. do abit of both!!!Kathy

    11. Judy..this french toast looks amazing! I am wondering why I never thought of this..next time I make french toast I will surely be using my waffle iron!

    12. I'm a huge fan of waffle french toast AND waffled any muffin mix! Including corn bread! Any quick bread can be poured into a waffle iron, with the addition of about a tablespoon of oil to the recipe if it doesn't already have oil included.

      The real beauty of this trick is that instead of waiting 20 minutes for muffins to bake, you can make the same flavor bread side dish in minutes in the waffle iron.

      There is a really cool cook book called Waffles Morning Noon and Night that really gets creative with what can be made in a waffle iron.

    13. Wow, that is a great idea! Sounds like a good winter meal too. :) Love your blog.

    14. Great idea...and perfect for 2 people...I still have some trouble getting recipes rightsized for the 2 of us, ...thanks!

    15. Wow, Judy! Yummy looking. I am trying to be good, but I have to say this looks scrumptious. Great idea.

    16. Sounds like a very good idea - to be tried on the weekend.
      I hope you managed to settle down into the office side of your room!

    17. Now, if that isn't innovative I don't know what is! What a great idea!

    18. Judy...this looks so good...I'm not much of a waffle lover, but french toast, that's another story. This "waffled french toast" looks simply delish!

      Thanks for including the recipe.

    19. would now like to lick the computer screen.

    20. Now that's interesting. I never thought of useing my waffle maker to make french toast, that would be so much easier.
      I looked at your other waffle recipes, they look good. I've been searching for a good waffle recipe, and I'll be trying your for sure.Thanks.
