Healthy And Delicious Waffle Recipes: How To Make French Toast Waffles
Healthy Recipes - French Toast Waffles
If you are like me, you probably enjoy French toast from time to time - and you probably also love waffles. Who could resist?
Both these breakfast delights are popular for the breakfast and brunch crowd, and there are millions of recipes for everything from stuffed French toast to bacon waffles out there. But what if we combined waffles and French toast? Here's my all time favorite recipe for what I call 'the best of both worlds' French toast.
This recipe is from Cooking Light magazine and this delicious combination is called French Toast Waffles.
Try it and see if you don't agree that it is fantastic. Serve with syrup as you would traditional French toast or serve with whipped cream and fruit - or homemade applesauce. Another alternative is to dust lightly with powdered sugar.
It will surprise you how great this recipe is and how minimal the effort to create it.

French Toast Waffle Recipe
Makes 4 servings (approximately 4 waffles)
- Cooking spray
- 1 cup skim milk
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1 tablespoon butter, melted
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 2 large eggs (or 1/2 cup egg substitute)
- 16 1/2-inch thick slices of day-old French bread (about 7 ounces)
- Coat a waffle iron with cooking spray and preheat.
- Combine milk, sugar, butter, vanilla, cinnamon and eggs. Stir with a whisk.
- Place bread slices in a 13 x 9 inch baking dish. Pour milk mixture over the bread turning to coat.
- Let stand for 5 minutes.
- Place 4 bread slices on hot waffle iron. Cook 3-5 minutes or until done.
- Repeat procedure with remaining bread.
Make sure that the bread you use is slightly hard or day-old so it will soak up the milk mixture and not become soggy because you want your bread to be crisp when waffled.
