Thaw your waffles: You'll need your waffles to come to room temperature before cooking. You can leave them on the counter to thaw, lightly toast them, or microwave them for 30 seconds in the microwave.
Make the batter: In a bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, cinnamon, and vanilla until fully combined. Transfer to a shallow bowl that has enough width to fully coat the waffle.
Dip the waffles: Add each thawed waffle to the wet mixture making sure you let the liquid seep into the waffle on both sides.
Cook the waffles: Add butter or oil to a large skillet and heat it over medium heat. Once the skillet is hot, shake off any excess batter from the waffles and cook on the skillet until browned on both sides.
Garnish and serve: Plate your waffle french toast and serve with butter, maple syrup, and a heaping of fresh berries.
You can thaw your waffles 3 ways: on the counter, in the microwave, or lightly toasting them. They thaw out pretty quickly.
Make sure your waffles get fully coated in the batter. You may need to push the waffle into the batter so the squares soak it up.
Shake off the excess batter before cooking as this will help the waffles cook evenly.
Make sure the skillet is hot with oil before cooking in order to get a nice crispy outside.
To the batter, you can add different kinds of spices such as nutmeg, allspice, or ginger.
Try using different types of milk such as almond milk or coconut milk.
Add a protein and fiber boost by sprinkling some chia seeds or flaxseed meal into the mixture.
Change up the toppings! Instead of syrup and berries, try serving this with bananas and peanut butter, whipped cream and chocolate chips, or even just a dusting of powdered sugar.
