What's for Breakfast? French Toast or Waffles?

This is sort of cheating, because you are not really making a waffle batter.

Henry was not sure if he wanted French toast for breakfast or waffles on a recent Sunday morning (such difficult choices).

Why not make 2 in 1?

There is an old recipe from a 1955 Log Cabin Syrup ad called "Bread & Butter Waffles", which is really French toast in the waffle iron.

This is so easy and so good.

You can double the recipe easily.

French Toast Waffles:

4 slices of good quality white bread
1 egg
3/4 cup milk
1 tbsp sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
butter for the toast

I buy a fresh baked pullman loaf at my bakery and have them slice it for me. It's a big loaf, and I put it in the freezer for recipes like these, otherwise I am not a white bread girl (we all know I am rye!).

Butter both sides of the bread slices. I used Kerry Gold salted Irish butter.

Pre-heat your waffle iron.

Mix up the egg, milk, sugar and cinnamon, and dip each side of the buttered bread slices in the eggy mixture, and sprinkle w/ extra cinnamon sugar (optional).

Place the bread slices in the hot waffle iron and close the lid.

It should take about 5 minutes at most to cook them nice and crispy.

Drizzle w/ maple syrup and serve immediately.



WOW, Stacey. That looks great. I have never heard of buttering the bread first. By the way, I love french toast made with rye bread. Try it. xo, Rosemary
