EASY FRENCH TOAST WAFFLES
1/2 cup whole milk
2 large eggs
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 pinch salt
4 pieces 1/2-inch thick slices of sturdy bread, such as brioche or French
Preheat a waffle iron according to manufacturer's instructions and spray with cooking spray.
Whisk milk, eggs, maple syrup, vanilla extract and salt together in a wide bowl until thoroughly combined.
Dip bread slices 1 at a time in the egg mixture, coating both sides completely.
Lift bread with a slotted spatula to allow excess egg mixture to drain back into the bowl.
Place dipped bread slices on waxed paper and let rest until mixture soaks in, about 2 minutes.
Place dipped bread in the preheated waffle iron. Gently close the lid without forcing it down. Cook according to manufacturer's instructions until golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Repeat with remaining slices.
Makes 2 servings.
