Easy French Toast Waffles Recipe

Last week I made a fabulous dish that combines two of our favorite breakfast foods – waffles and french toast. My entire family thought it was super yummy! Not only did it taste delicious, it was very simple to make and used ingredients that I keep on-hand. This recipe for french toast waffles is a keeper, I promise! In fact, making french toast in your waffle iron just might change the way you make your favorite breakfast foods forever!

How to Make French Toast In A Waffle Maker

  1. Spray your waffle maker (I love to use a Belgian waffle maker) with nonstick cooking spray and then let it preheat
  2. In a medium sized mixing bowl, whisk together the milk, eggs, vanilla, cinnamon and salt
  3. Take a slice of bread (I love using Texas toast) and dip it in your egg mixture
  4. Place the bread in the waffle maker and then let it cook for about 4-5 minutes
  5. When they are golden brown and crispy, they are ready to eat
  6. Serve them with Buttermilk Syrup, fresh fruit or another delicious topping and a side of Bacon

Can You Freeze French Toast Waffles

Yes, you can definitely freeze these to eat later! In fact, since this recipe can easily be doubled (or tripled), I always make an extra batch of these and freeze them so they can eat these during the week before they go off to school. Once the waffles have completely cooled, place them in a large Ziploc freezer bag and then store them in the freezer. When you’re ready to eat them, you can warm them up in a toaster, the microwave or just eat them cold like my kids do.
