Fraffles? Wench Toast?

p1010002-11

After reading it cover to cover, I was inspired by Ina Garten‘s book, Barefoot in Paris. Perhaps it was the beautiful pictures, but suddenly I was CRAVING what she refers to as an old-fashioned French nursery dessert: French toast! Not wanting to drag out the big ‘ole griddle or a massive frying pan, I took the next best option – the waffle iron. After I mixed up the eggs and milk (too lazy to drag out a recipe book), I added a little vanilla and cinnamon for some haute cuisine flavor.  Then, I simply dipped several pieces of day old bread from a local bakery into the mixture, placed the slices on my waffle iron and squeezed the lid shut. When the “done” light turned popped on, we plated and devoured our tasty, French-inspired breakfast complete with real maple syrup and butter! Bon appetit!
