Hello hello! Oh man do I have an exciting recipe for you today! I mean, what could be better than French toast waffles!?! That’s a two-fer for sure!
These are super simple to whip up and make a great first impression to guests — or your general house guests (i.e. family!) I got to thinking about how I would make these when I stumbled across a video from Bobby Flay showing that he made something very similar. When I looked in my fridge, I definitely had sandwich bread but then my eyes feel on these brioche hamburger buns that I had yet to use all of and yep! You guessed it! I decided to give this a shot with those hamburger buns.
Sometimes invention is born of necessity — am I right??
So off we go. I had whipped up some super simple French toast batter, sliced up these hamburger buns and greased my waffle maker. Way, WAY easier than I thought it would be. Bonus? These little gems fit in the toaster for quick and easy breakfasts!
So, if you’ve got some hamburger buns just layin’ around waiting to be used from a late summer picnic — have no fear! This recipe would work great with all kinds of buns, hun.
