French Toast In a Waffle Iron
Thursday 8 October 2015   —   Category: Cooking & Food
Recently I came across the idea that you can cook more than waffles in a waffle iron. I don’t know why it took me half a century to realize this, but as they say, better late than never!

A little bit of Googling enabled me to discover a long list of foods which can be cooked in a waffle iron. For my first non-waffle experiement, I decided to stay near the beaten path and make some French toast in my waffle iron instead of on a griddle as usual.

I took two slices of my favorite Trader Joe’s Tuscan Pane, soaked them in beaten egg and milk, and then plopped them onto a hot, greased waffle iron. Time to shut the lid!
Meanwhile, as a healthier alternative to regular bacon, I fried some Canadian bacon in a bit of olive oil until it was nice and crispy.
After a number of minutes, my two slices of French toast had been cooked to perfection! Didn’t the waffle iron give them a beautiful color and artistic pattern?
A yummy way to start the day! I drenched the wafflized French toast in my own homemade syrup — half real maple syrup, half light corn syrup — and washed it all down with a glass of Tropicana Grovestand Lots of Pulp orange juice.
The numbers and types of foods which can be cooked in a waffle iron are limited only by the imagination. I’ve already got quite a number of interesting and delicious ideas. I can’t wait until my next great waffle iron experiment!
