Can’t decide between French Toast or Waffles for breakfast? Let me make it easier and tell you that you don’t have to: cook French Toast, using your waffle iron *mind blown*
This is by far my favourite French Toast recipe. Including a little bit of cinnamon/vanilla and sugar to the mix just brings it to a whole new level of awesome. Taking out the egg whites help to alleviate some of the sogginess associated with your usual unspectacular French Toast. To even further help this problem if you’re just making plain French Toast on a griddle or in a frying pan, I highly recommend toasting the bread before you dip it in the egg bath– this really helps the texture! When cooking on the waffle iron, however, I didn’t find this step was as necessary.
PREP TIME: COOK TIME: TOTAL TIME: 25 min YIELD: 2 servings
- 3 egg yolks
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tbsp brown sugar (could be omitted, if you’re just planning to smother in syrup anyway)
- White bread, sliced 1″ thick
- Pre-heat waffle iron.
- Combine egg yolks, 3/4 cup milk, vanilla, cinnamon and sugar and whip until well mixed.
- Dip sliced bread in egg mixture and briefly soak, only 5 seconds or so. Let excess drip off and place immediately on the waffle iron to cook.
- Serve with your favourite topping. Some of our favourites are plain (real Canadian) maple syrup, strawberry sauce and whipped cream (below), or blueberry sauce.
