French Toast Waffle Sandwiches are this households’ favorite brinner food – they are easy, filling, and fun to make. The best part is that each person can tailor this meal to his or her flavors.
First, start with dry bread. You can dry it in the oven for a few minutes, if need be.
Next, choose your schmears. These were our options for this brinner.
Greta got peanut butter and pear butter.
Eric and I both had almond butter and pumpkin butter. Spread your toppings on your bread, then put your sandwich together.
In a bowl, beat 1 egg plus a couple tablespoons of milk, a sprinkle of cinnamon, and a splash of vanilla, per sandwich. Soak the sandwich, flipping to allow both sides adequate egg mixture.
Place soaked sandwich on a preheated waffle iron.
Close, press down once to smash sandwich a bit, and cook until done. On my waffle iron there is a light that turns from red to green when the waffles are done. This is the perfect amount of time and even allows the edges of the bread to cook fully.
Your waffle sandwich should be golden.
Serve as is or with toppings.
Eric opted for a Nutella spread on the top of his waffle sandwich.
Greta’s happy little feet kicked all through dinner. This is crowd pleasing meal and so easy to tailor to specific palates. Next time I am going to try a more savory combination of goat cheese and figs on the inside.
