Teen 1: No response..wasn't home from work, however, upon seeing the leftovers in the fridge and not recognizing what it was..she claimed there wasn't any thing to eat. Oh, well.
Teen 2: Said it smelled good but looked ridiculous...she ate several of them with reckless abandon.
Teen 3: No words just the sounds of chewing.
Additional teen visitor: Initially said it was interesting..ate several..loved them.
And..the husband: I received the highest comment he gives..'it's good'. When questioned further he said..'make them again.' He liked the way the 'nooks and crannies' held butter and syrup.
So, how did we do it? Here's the recipe... (or use your standard favorite):
French Toast Waffle Style
Six standard fresh eggs (I used 12 new layer small eggs)
1 cup fresh milk
1/4 cup brown sugar
dash of salt
12-14 slices of bread
melted butter for the waffle iron
In a low, shallow dish, whisk together eggs, milk, sugar and salt while preheating your waffle iron.
Butter the hot waffle iron, dip the bread into the egg mixture and place on waffle iron..repeating as many will fit in one time.
A few notes:
* Butter or oil the waffle iron..don't skip it..don't. Your will be sorry, trust me.
* Press your waffle iron shut..otherwise it won't make the nooks and crannies.
* Cook it like a waffle..mine has an auto timer..worked perfect.
* Larger Artisan loaves work well, too. I fit two per setting (forgot to photo it, sorry).
* This freezes well for easy breakfasts, hand snacks or speedy dinners. Keeps in fridge several days.
Yum, yum, yum...tastes great with coffee!
