Chris put in a request for the waffled french toast for his birthday breakfast. I'm actually not a huge french toast fan. Especially when we make it at home I just always feel like it's a little too eggy for me. However, I totally loved this receipe. I picked up a fresh loaf of sourdough bread at the store and followed his recipe for the batter. I added in a healthy helping of cinnamon and a dash of sugar and nutmeg as well. I was only able to stretch the batter out to cover four thickly sliced pieces of bread and not the six he says in the recipe but that was the perfect amount for us anyway.
I love how crisp the wafflemaker gets the bread and the little waffle dents are perfect for housing a flood of maple syrup. Add in a sprinkle of powdered sugar and a side of corned beef hash and Chris had his perfect birthday breakfast. I can't wait to try this recipe again with some fresh fruit and bacon. Now that would be my perfect birthday breakfast.
