I’ve always seen the different types of food that could be cooked in a waffle maker but up until now, the only thing I made was waffles. This weekend in New Jersey, I made soup (recipe to come) but I bought bread to have with it. We hardly ever buy bread, mainly because I can’t control myself (true story). So needless to say there was leftover bread on Saturday morning.

Leftover bread was the perfect excuse to try making french toast in my waffle maker. The result? AMAZING! I honestly wish I had more bread at the time because it was really delicious!

the finished product that tasted amazing!

Waffle Maker French Toast

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 3 minutes


  • Waffle Maker
  • Bread, any thick kind will work, I used ciabatta
  • 3-4 eggs depending on how much bread you have
  • 1c of milk
  • 2tsp cinnamon
  • 1sp vanilla extract
  • 2tbsp sugar


  1. Plug in waffle maker until it is heated, this will vary for each machine
  2. Whisk eggs together and then add milk
  3. Add remaining ingredients and mix well
  4. Dip bread in mixture until it is soaked through
  5. Place each piece of bread in the divots of the waffle maker
  6. I let my french toast cook for 2-3 minutes until it's golden brown
  7. I topped it with a little bit of syrup and powdered sugar

    That looks so good! I can’t have any dairy products though. :/ I have a waffle maker, but like you, I’ve only made waffles. 😀

    This is a great recipe! I have one child that likes waffles and one child that likes French toast. This way I can combine them both! Score one for mom! Thank you so much for sharing and linking up with us over at the Welcome Home Wednesdays Link Party!
