What is Frozen Waffle French Toast?

Frozen waffle French toast is French toast made with store-bought frozen waffles, such as Eggos.

It is the perfect breakfast for busy mornings and is a great way to take the classic eggo waffles to the next level.

We love transforming a few store-bought ingredients into something new, like this Cinnamon Roll Apple Cobbler, which uses canned cinnamon rolls and apple pie filling and makes a tasty dessert or breakfast treat.

This Frozen waffle French toast is another way to transform a store-bought ingredient into something new and delicious.

This recipe is made the same way as a typical French toast recipe, except instead of using bread, you use frozen waffles.

Dipped in a delicious egg custard that is lightly sweet with the flavor of cinnamon and vanilla, they have a homemade taste with little work.

You can make as small or as large a batch as you need, depending on how many people you serve. Just increase or decrease the French toast batter accordingly.

Top them with your favorite waffle or french toast fixings, such as butter and maple syrup, whipped cream and berries, or peanut butter and chocolate chips.

Because these are so easy to whip up, they are great for busy mornings but can also be a tasty lunch or after-school snack.

Ingredient notes & substitutions

Frozen waffles – I used the traditional buttermilk eggo waffle, but this recipe would work great with any flavor, such as blueberry, cinnamon, or chocolate chip.

Eggs – A staple in French toast.  You need two large eggs for this recipe.

Milk – Milk is mixed with the egg to form the custard that soaks the waffle.  You can use 2% or whole milk, or for a thicker custard; you can use heavy cream.   You can also use leftover eggnog if it is the Christmas season.

Powdered sugar – Powdered sugar works best in this recipe as it will mix smoothly with the cold ingredients. It adds a bit of sweetness but also helps create a crispy exterior.

For additional flavor, You will also want:

  • Vanilla extract
  • Cinnamon

You can play with the flavors to suit your taste.  Use spices such as pumpkin pie spice or apple pie spice, or add some ginger or nutmeg to the French toast batter.

Ingredients for french toast waffles.

Step by Step Instructions

French toast is pretty simple to make with just a few steps.

Remove the frozen waffles from the freezer and let them thaw for about 10 minutes before starting. This will help them soak up more of the delicious batter. Alternatively, you can pop them in the microwave for about 30 seconds.

While you are preparing the batter, preheat a griddle to medium heat.

In a wide, shallow bowl, whisk the egg until smooth.

In a measuring cup, measure the milk, then whisk in the powdered sugar, vanilla, and spices.

Add the milk to the eggs and whisk to combine.

Dip each waffle in the egg mixture, coating both sides. You will want to dunk the waffle in the batter to make sure it has a chance to soak in. Just a few seconds per side is sufficient.

Lightly grease the griddle with butter or oil.

Place the soaked waffles on the griddle and cook for about 5 minutes until the bottom is golden brown, then flip and cook for a few more minutes.

The perfect French toast waffle will have a golden, slightly crisp exterior and should be soft and moist in the middle.

Making French Toast Waffle on an Outdoor Griddle

This recipe can easily made on an outdoor griddle, such as a Blackstone Grill or similar unit. This makes it great if you need to cook a large batch, don’t want to heat the kitchen, or are camping.

Just preheat your griddle to medium heat and follow the recipe directions to prepare and cook the French toast.

Griddle – You will need a flat griddle or skillet to make French toast.  This can be as simple as a large, wide frying pan, or you can use an electric griddle if you have one. I like using a square skillet as it is easy to cook four waffles at a time.  This recipe also can be made on outdoor griddles such as a Blackstone grill.

Whisk – A small whisk will help you get a nice, smooth batter.

Spatula – You will need a spatula to turn the waffles on the griddle.  If you use a non-stick griddle, use nylon or silicone tools to avoid damaging your pan.

Serving Suggestions

French toast waffles can be served in much the same way as most breakfast recipes, like waffles, pancakes, and traditional French toast.

We like serving them with butter and lots of maple syrup.  

But there are so many fun ways to dress them up; peanut butter, hazelnut spreads, some berries and whipped cream, or a handful of chocolate chips all make for a delicious breakfast.

Top Tips & FAQS

Can I make French toast dairy-free?

You can easily make this recipe dairy-free by swapping the milk for your favorite alternatives, such as oat, almond, or cashew milk.

Can I freeze French toast waffles?

You can freeze leftover French toast waffles. Wrap the cooled waffles with plastic wrap or store them in an airtight container or ziplock bag. When you want to reheat them, remove them from the freezer and pop them in the toaster, oven, or air fryer.
