French Toast Waffles

Cuisinart original

A fun twist on French toast. We recommend a lower setting for these “waffles,” so not todry out the bread while cooking.

6     large eggs
1½  cups milk (any variety, nondairy OK)
1     tablespoon pure vanilla extract
2     tablespoons pure maple syrup
1     teaspoon ground cinnamon
1     or 2 pinches ground nutmeg
1     or 2 pinches kosher salt

Instructions

1. In a large mixing bowl, combine all
of the ingredients, except for the bread,
and whisk well.
2. Pour the batter into a shallow bowl or a
13x9-inch baking pan. Dip the bread in the
batter and allow to soak on both sides for
a few minutes (just add as much bread as
fits in one layer).
3. Preheat the waffle maker to Setting 2 or 3.
4. Place one piece of the soaked bread on
the waffle plate. Slowly close the waffle maker
and turn clockwise to flip. Open the second
waffle plate and place another piece of the
soaked bread on that plate, close and turn
clockwise to flip. While French toast is baking,
add more bread to soak in the batter.
5. When the waffles are ready, carefully open
the waffle maker and remove baked waffle.
Then turn and open the second waffle plate
to remove the second waffle. Repeat with
remaining soaked bread.
6. For best results, serve immediately
