Texas Toast French Toast Waffles

I love Texas toast.
I love French toast.
I love waffles.
… and that sums up how I feel about Texas toast French toast waffles! Incredibly easy to make and beyond yummy. Self-control was very challenging with a platter of these little tasty beauties in front of me. Sweet, with a hint of cinnamon and vanilla, you can substitute any bread you like, but I prefer Texas toast because it can more than handle the job of holding up to an egg batter and a waffle iron.
I often contemplate what I would do differently to a recipe after I make it. A little twist or something. I can honestly say there is absolutely nothing I would change about Texas toast French toast waffles. Except to maybe double the recipe.

English Muffin French Toast

Our local grocery store has English muffins on sale 50% off on occasion. I can’t pass it up when they do since English muffins are great for a lot of things, from breakfast to lunch to dinner. I love them as hamburger buns, topping the burger with a great fried egg. And now, I love them as French toast.

English Muffin French ToastThese English muffin French toasts take very little time to make and come out fantastic. They taste just like your usual French toast, but they have a bit more crunch and texture to them. I’d have no problem saying that I like them more than the usual French toast.

Although I garnished these with powdered sugar and maple syrup, you could also use chocolate syrup, or better, Nutella spread!
