Brioche French Toast, Waffle Style

  • 10 to 14 slices of brioche bread
  • 1 cup half & half
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg

Preheat your waffle iron according to the manufacturer's settings.

In a large measuring cup or medium bowl, whisk the half and half, eggs, vanilla extract, sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg until completely combined. Pour the mixture into a shallow dish, such as a pie plate.

Place one slice of the brioche bread into the custard, and soak each side of the bread for about 20 seconds. Transfer the moist slices to a plate to continue absorbing for about a minute or two.

Spray the waffle iron lightly with nonstick cooking spray. Gently place just one slice of the custardy brioche into the waffle iron, and cook until ready — this will vary depending on the make of your waffle iron. When the waffles are done, remove them from them from the waffle iron and let them rest on a baking rack. You can keep them warm in a 200 degree F oven until they’re all ready to serve.

Serve with butter, maple syrup, fresh fruit, and/or powdered sugar.
