French Toast Waffles

A waffle maker creates a crisp, brown French toast without a skillet. Just make sure you start with slightly hardened bread so that the toast won't be soggy. Serve toast with fresh berries, powdered sugar, or maple syrup.

  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 4 waffles)

Ingredients

  • Cooking spray
  • 1 cup fat-free milk
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 16 (1/2-inch-thick) slices day-old French bread (about 7 ounces)

Preparation

Coat waffle iron with cooking spray, and preheat.

Combine milk and the next 5 ingredients (milk through eggs), stirring well with a whisk. Place bread in a 13 x 9-inch baking dish; pour milk mixture over bread, turning to coat. Let stand 5 minutes.
