Ingredients and Variations

Bread – Dense bread like brioche, challah, or a baguette will soak up the sweet, creamy batter. Use thick slices of bread for a more Belgian-style waffle, simply add extra cooking time. Leftover cinnamon rolls can also be sliced into layers for French toast waffles!

Batter – Use half-and-half or cream for a thicker batter. Feel free to add a dash of ground nutmeg, ginger, or allspice to the cinnamon and brown sugar for an extra aromatic and flavorful French toast! Lower the sugar or use an alternative for fewer calories without compromising the taste.

Variations – Use the air fryer to bake a batch of peach bread instead of plain bread and then serve with fresh peaches! Even leftover pancakes can be cooked in a waffle iron.

How to Make French Toast Waffles

  1. Whisk the batter ingredients in a bowl.
  2. Dip both sides of the bread into the batter.
  3. Cook in a preheated waffle iron until browned and crispy.

Serve hot with butter and maple syrup.

Tips and Tricks

  • For extra crispy waffles, separate the egg whites from the yolks and beat them until stiff peaks form. Then, fold the beaten egg whites into the waffle batter.
  • Keep leftover French toast waffles in a covered container for up to 4 days or freeze them in a zippered bag for up to two months. For best results, reheat frozen slices in the air fryer or in the toaster.
