Yes, It’s time for another waffle maker goodie. This time I tried making French toast with bacon and chocolate chips nestled in the middle. This is defiantly for one of those indulgent breakfast mornings. The bacon and chocolate chips take this to the next level, not to mention all those crispy, square pockets that are perfect for holding that rich syrup. I used sourdough bread and cut it a little thicker so this made a nice, thick French toast, but regular sandwich bread works too. Just make sure the bread is not too fresh, or it will not hold up well when dipping into the egg mixture.
Here’s what you need:
*sourdough bread or any other preferred variety
*2 slices of bacon per serving cooked until crisp
*semi sweet chocolate chips
*1/2 Cup milk
*1/2 tsp. cinnamon (apple pie spice is really good instead of the cinnamon as well)
*1/2 tsp vanilla extract
*no stick spray
Pre heat waffle maker and spray with no stick spray.
In a dish add eggs. milk, cinnamon and vanilla extract.
Whisk to combine.
Cut bread to desired thickness, remember that there will be two slices for each serving or you can use the pre sliced kind.
Place bacon onto one of the slices.
Then add some of the chocolate chips on top of the bacon.
I only added a few because I did not want the chocolate to over power the bacon.
Place the other slice of bread over the chocolate chips and place bottom side down into the egg mixture.
Let it sit in the mixture for a few seconds to absorb the egg.
Turn over the “sandwich” and soak the other side in the egg mixture.
Place inside of the waffle maker with the bottom side down.
Close and cook for about 5 minutes or until golden brown and heated thru.
Place on to plates add butter if desired and top with your favorite syrup.
