With 4th of July right around the corner, I thought it would be appropriate to start this week off with a patriotic breakfast idea! Maybe you have a waffle iron and have no clue what to do with it. Maybe you do, but haven’t dusted it off in a while. Maybe you don’t like the hassle of mixing up the waffle batter… No mind, these are the simplest no muss, no fuss waffles you will ever make and they are super sumptuous too! Are they waffles or is it french toast? Why, it’s both! French toast and waffles all in one, pretty clever, huh?
With this recipe, you heat up your waffle iron, then go about making french toast as you normally would. Then instead of pouring batter into your waffle iron, you just place your egg soaked bread in! Talk about easy and talk about yum!
Then start preparing your egg mixture:
Now prepare your waffle iron because as you dredge your bread, you need to immediately place into your waffle iron, this step doesn’t take long at all.
Recipe for French Toast Waffles:
4 slices of wheat bread (or your favorite sliced bread)
1/4 cup light cream (whole milk to substitute)
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 pinch cinnamon
non-stick cooking spray
berries, butter and syrup to top
Pre-heat waffle iron.
Prepare eggs. Crack two eggs into a bowl. Scramble with fork. Add in cream, vanilla and cinnamon. Scramble with fork.
Dredge each slice of bread in liquid one at a time. Spray waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray, covering both top and bottom. As you finish the individual dredging, place each slice in the iron. Close iron and wait about two minutes. Waffles will be ready when golden brown.
Top with fresh berries, butter and syrup. Enjoy!
