What better way to eat two breakfast favorites? Try these challah french toast waffles and knock out two birds with one fork.
- 6 to 8 1-inch thick slices of challah bread
- 1 cup half & half
- 1 large egg, whole
- 3 large egg yolks
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1 tbsp sugar
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
- Pinch of sea salt
- Butter (SEE NOTE)
- Maple syrup
- Fresh Fruit (optional)
- Powdered sugar (optional)
- Preheat your waffle iron according to preferred manufacturer settings.
- In a large measuring cup or medium bowl, whisk the half and half, whole egg, egg yolks, vanilla extract, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and pinch of sea salt until completely combined. Pour the mixture into a shallow dish, such as a pie dish.
- Place one slice of challah bread into the custard, and soak each side of the challah bread for about 20 seconds. Transfer the moist slices to a plate to continue absorbing for about a minute or two.
- Melt a little butter into the bottom of the now-ready waffle iron, or use nonstick cooking spray. Gently place just one slice of the custardy challah into the waffle iron, and cook until ready — this will vary depending on the make of your waffle iron. When the waffles are done, remove them from them from the waffle iron and let them rest on a baking rack. You can keep them warm in a 200 degree F oven until they’re all ready.
- Serve with butter, maple syrup, fresh fruit (if using), and powdered sugar (if using). Enjoy!
You can fry your waffles in the waffle iron with butter or non-stick cooking spray.
