Description

If the name of these pillowy, seasonal breakfast treats does not want to make you jump for joy, then I don’t know what will! Gingerbread. Waffle. French Toast. Sticks.


Ingredients

  • For Gingerbread Waffles
  • waffle mix to make 3-4 waffles, about 1 cup (**see recipe notes)
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon molasses
  • For French Toast Sticks:
  • 3-4 cooked waffles, cut lengthwise into sticks
  • 3 eggs
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon of ground cloves
  • 1 tablespoon butter

Instructions

  1. Follow the package directions to make 3-4 waffles (about 1 cup waffle mix).
  2. Stir cinnamon, ginger, cloves, vanilla and molasses into the batter.
  3. Heat a non-stick waffle iron over medium and coat with cooking spray, if needed.
  4. Ladle the batter onto the waffle iron, and cook until golden brown.
  5. While waffles are cooking, crack eggs into a shallow dish.
  6. Add the milk and spices, and whisk until well combined.
  7. Once waffles are cooked and cooled slightly, slice into sticks, roughly 1 inch thick.
  8. Place sticks into the egg mixture, and soak both sides for 30 seconds.
  9. On medium-high heat, melt butter in a cast iron skillet.
  10. Add the waffle sticks to the skillet, and cook until golden brown on one side.
  11. Cook each side of the stick before removing from the skillet. Serve with dusting of powdered sugar and maple syrup, if desired.

Notes

When using box waffle mix I typically will use milk instead of water and coconut oil when it calls for oil
