French Toast Waffles


Cooking Spray
1 cup fat-free milk
1 tablespoon butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 large eggs
16 (1/2 inch thick) slices French bread) (we were only able to get 8 pieces out of this – maybe ours just soaked up more than it was supposed to)


1. Coat waffle iron with cooking spray, and preheat.
2. Combine milk and the next 5 ingredients (milk through eggs), stirring well with a whisk. Place bread in a 13 x 9 inch baking dish, pour milk mixture over bread, turning to coat. Let stand 5 minutes. (We just dipped ours like regular French toast)
3. Place 4 bread slices on hot waffle iron. Cook 3 to 5 minutes or until done; repeat the procedure with the remaining bread.

These are the best waffles ever, and they’re really easy. For the best results you need a waffle iron that clamps down or else you need to put a weight on there because the French bread is pretty thick and the waffle iron won’t close down unless you have a clamp or a weight on there.
This is a great way to use up old French bread or dried out bread.
