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.

Cowboy Breakfast Sandwiches

We both love having breakfast for dinner. We don’t usually have time in the mornings to make an elaborate breakfast, so making it for dinner lets us go wild.Cowboy Breakfast Sandwiches

I used homemade breakfast sausage on these cowboy breakfast sandwiches, but of course store-bought sausage works just as well. Don’t skip the jalapenos, they are what really sets this sandwich apart. They aren’t too hot, they just add some zing.
