French Waffles

Gia – Now and Then!

French Waffles first came about when my granddaughter Gia came for a visit in 2007. This last week GIa graduated from high school and that is what started me thinking about her last 18 years. It just doesn’t seem possible that she could be old enough to be graduating as it was “just yesterday” that she was here for a visit and we were making breakfast one morning and something interrupted the process.

We were making French Toast and I had put the bread in the egg mixture when the interruption occurred and when we I got back the bread was almost falling apart in the egg mixture so we decided that if we would heat up the waffle iron and use a spatula to put the soaked bread on the iron it might make a pretty good waffle.

French Waffles

2 eggs
1/2 c. milk
1/4 t. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup flour
1/4 tsp salt
1 tbsp brown sugar
3 slices bread*

Blend first seven (7) ingredients together (eggs – brown sugar). (I use a NutriBullet in blend it all.) Pour the mixture into one of the pans of your breading set or a pie pan.
Soak bread, one slice at a time, in egg mixture for about 3 minutes. (It will depend on what kind of bread you use as to how long it will take the bread to soak up quite a bit of the egg mixture to the point where your bread is really mushy.)
Preheat a waffle iron to medium high and spray with nonstick spray.
Place soaked bread on waffle iron grid and close the lid. Bake until waffles are completely done- following your waffle iron’s instructions.
Remove finished waffle. Repeat with remaining soaked bread slices.
Keep waffles warm until ready to serve by placing them on a rack in a 150 degree oven.
Serve with powdered sugar,  pancake syrup, jam or topping of your choice and butter, of course, served in a butter bell!

After it came out of the waffle-iron we decided to call it a French Waffle. Over the years I have used this method to make waffles and no one has guessed they were not made from scratch.
