1. Put the eggs, milk, vanilla, maple syrup,
cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt in a medium bowl.
Whisk to fully combine and pour into a 13 x
9-inch baking dish.
2. Add the bread slices, turning so both sides
are saturated. Allow to soak for 30 minutes.
3. When ready to cook, preheat the waffle maker
to setting 4. The waffle maker’s ready light will
illuminate green to indicate it is ready to use.
4. Place one soaked strip of the bread into each
waffle stick section. Close the lid; the green
indicator light will turn off. When the green
indicator light turns on again, the French toast
sticks are ready. Open the lid and carefully
remove the French toast sticks. Break apart
into individual sticks and serve immediately.
5. Repeat with remaining pieces.
6. French toast sticks are best served straight
from the waffle maker. (If not being consumed
immediately, they can be kept warm in a
single layer on a rack in a 200°F oven.)
