French Toast Waffles

I’m a from-scratch cook but also like shortcuts. Since we love French toast and waffles, I use a waffle iron to make a hybrid French toast. —Linda Martindale, Elkhorn, WI

    This recipe was amazing. While I had my foods 1 class make regular waffles I used this recipe to try myself. I was not sure how it was going to work or taste but I used just regular cheap bread (that is all I had) and first I used a belgian waffle iron. no students wanted to try it and then 1 did after the 1 did and liked it then they slowly came over and many of my 15 students tried it and loved it. I found this to be neater than doing regular waffles as the bread is smaller than the griddle so it did not ooze out the side. I have always loved the flavor of french toast more than a waffle but have not minded the texture of the waffle though sometime too dense for me. I like a moister taste. This combines the both of best worlds.
