Have you ever found yourself the proud owner of several boxes of frozen toaster waffles? Sales, deals, gifts, they just sort of accumulate in the freezer.
Turning those forgotten, unwanted, or that abundant collections of waffles into french toast is truly amazing. Not only do you get great flavors, but you also get those syrup pockets. YUM!

🔪 Instructions for Eggos Waffles French Toast
Step 1: Heat Eggos on a plate in the microwave for about 30 sec-1 min until soft and no longer frozen.
Step 2: Add egg, milk, cinnamon and vanilla to a pie plate or large bowl.
Step 3: Whisk together until well blended.
Step 4: Heat a greased skillet over medium heat until the water sizzles. This shows that the pan is hot and ready. Grease it once it's warmed up.
Step 5: Dip a waffle in the egg mixture.
Step 6: Flip to coat both sides completely.
Step 7: Lay the waffle in the pan and cook until golden, about 2 minutes.
Step 8: Flip and cook the other side for another 2 minutes or until golden.
Step 9: The edges will look crisp and cooked, but the pockets may appear wetter. Any egg whites should appear white and not translucent.
Step 10: Repeat until all waffles have been cooked. Serve with butter and syrup.
For a fun, flavorful twist, try different flavors of waffles like blueberry, chocolate chip, or cinnamon. Yum!

💭 Recipe FAQs
Eggo brand makes gluten free waffles so yes, you can buy GF waffles and make your own GF Eggo french toast. If you can't find Eggo brand, I recommend trying Van's brand. It's delicious!
Milk is a common ingredient in many waffle French toast recipes, as it adds creaminess to the batter and helps create a desirable texture. However, it is possible to make waffle French toast without milk.
If you prefer or need a milk substitute, you can use almond milk, soy milk, oat milk, or any other non-dairy milk that suits your dietary preferences. Additionally, you can use water as a milk alternative, but the resulting batter will be less rich and flavorful.
Popular toppings for French toast include maple syrup, fresh berries, powdered sugar, whipped cream, nut butter, and sliced bananas. You can get creative with your favorite toppings.
