Tonight we had waffle French toast for dinner. It tasted like French toast, but a bit crispier. It also had perfect square indentions where the butter pooled; it made little pockets of melted butter and powdered sugar deliciousness. My little ones thought it was pretty cool that French toast could look like a waffle. I thought it was a fun spin on a classic breakfast (or in this case, dinner)!
Waffle French Toast
2 cups half-and-half
1 tablespoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 tablespoon firmly packed brown sugar
pinch of salt
8 slices brioche
Preheat waffle maker according to manufacturer's instructions. Spray surface with nonstick cooking spray or brush with melted butter.
In a bowl, whisk eggs until frothy. Add half-and-half, vanilla, cinnamon and brown sugar; whisk until blended.
Dip bread slices into egg mixture; soak, turning once, 30 seconds per side. Place bread on preheated waffle maker, close lid and cook until golden brown and crisp, about 4 minutes.
I found this recipe online, but now I can't remember where I found it.
