French Toast Waffles

Spread the love

Cooking French toast in a waffle iron, instead of on the stovetop, creates a supremely crisp toast that’s studded with waffle-like wells. It’s served with an irresistible combination of butter and maple syrup, which is vigorously whisked together like a salad dressing to create a luscious, caramelly sauce perfect for filling all those nooks and crannies. To give the French toast some sturdiness, the bread is dried out overnight like you’re making a stuffing. The staleness makes the bread extra absorbent so it’s custardy, not soggy, once cooked. Any waffle iron will work. It doesn’t matter if it’s round, square, thin, or a thick Belgian-style one. The size of the waffle iron may affect how many you can cook at one time, so allow extra time for a smaller iron.
