I know, great concept. However, it’s Alton Brown’s idea, not mine, and they are delicious. I don’t like making waffle batter, but I love waffles. And I like French toast, but sometimes it’s a little “eggy” for my taste. This is the perfect way to get the best of both, and easy.
I made a breakfast version of them, but you could make them savory and make a sandwich out of them, or serve them with fried chicken……….or make a fried chicken sandwich! It’s just so much easier, than trying to make a Monte Cristo sandwich (sandwich coated and fried, like French toast) – just put the French toast waffle sandwich together and heat it in the oven!
For the sweet version, I whisk eggs with a little vanilla, sugar, cinnamon, and a splash of cream.
For the savory version, I whisk eggs with chopped herbs, salt, pepper, and a splash of cream. Add some parmesan to this mixture, for a special treat.
