French Toffles

“What is a French Toffle?”, you might ask… or maybe not even a French toffle, but just “What is a Toffle?. Well a Toffle is a word I came up with to describe a piece of toast cooked like a waffle. A French Toffle, then, is a piece of French Toast cooked like a waffle. 

I like the technique of a Toffle, but I am still experimenting with fillings to put in them. But you don’t need any fillings! You can just do regular French Toffles, or you can do Toffle Fingers (strips of French Toast cooked like a waffle, and then eatten as finger food.). These cook SUPER FAST, since both sides cook at once. Fantastic!

First I tried a ham and cheese Toffle:

Ingredients:

2 eggs
3 TBS milk
Salt
Texas toast bread
Deli Ham
Swiss cheese

Directions:

Preheat  your waffle maker to the heat you prefer your waffles to be cooked at.

Cut the pieces of toast in half horizontally, but don’t cut all the way through (leave a little bit connecting each half of the bread). Put 1 piece of swiss cheese and 2 or three slices of deli ham inside the bread.

In a bowl combine eggs, milk and salt. Whisk together. Dip each piece of stuffed bread in the egg mixture. Place the bread in the waffle maker and press the lid down. Check the Toffle every few minutes until you see that it is golden brown.

Serve immediately.

I found that with the cheese and ham the Toffle was much too salty for me. I had planned on using Country Gravy as a sauce for my Toffle, but more salt was the last thing I wanted, so I put some strawberries & creme ice cream on top to of set the salt and it was pretty amazing… not that I am recommending ice cream for breakfast …Ok so maybe I am. But perhaps strawberry syrup or jam would do the same trick for saltiness.

Next I tried a PB and Cream Cheese Toffle:

Ingredients:

2 eggs
3 TBS milk
Salt
Texas toast bread
1 TBS Peanut Butter
2 TBS Cream Cheese
8 blueberries

Directions:

Preheat  your waffle maker to the heat you prefer your waffles to be cooked at.

Cut the pieces of toast in half horizontally, but don’t cut all the way through (leave a little bit connecting each half of the bread). Mix peanut butter, cream cheese and blueberries together, smashing the blueberries as you mix. Spread inside the bread.

In a bowl combine eggs, milk and salt. Whisk together. Dip each piece of stuffed bread in the egg mixture. Place the bread in the waffle maker and press the lid down. Check the Toffle every few minutes until you see that it is golden brown.

Serve immediately.

I am realizing that I am not a fan of salty breakfasts… Even the peanut butter and cream cheese was on the salty side… then again, maybe its just pregnancy. Either way, this filling was not bad, but I might just stick with regular French Toffles for now.
