Food hacks are always interesting. If you’re not familiar with food hacks, they’re basically using products or objects for cooking and food in different ways then they were intended. Food hacks have taken off. They’re ‘hot’ items and a novelty. Honestly, for me, food hacks are what I learned growing up as being resourceful and creative. Finding ways to multi-use things getting more mileage out of them.
So, with this recipe for french brioche coconut milk waffle toast, I wanted to use the waffle iron as a grill. I mean if you live in a small studio apartment in Manhattan and all you have is a waffle iron, you have to multi-use it. It can be a waffle iron, a grill, a pizza oven or a hot plate for frying an egg. Yeah, I’ve done an egg on a waffle iron, and it’s bizarre. It works!
What I love about these waffles is that I’ve used coconut milk in the egg batter. It gives it a richness and creamy taste that you don’t get with regular milk. Then if you can find brioche bread, you’re in business. If you can’t, get a thick cut bread. Of course, brioche is made in a different way. I’ve never made it from scratch, but that’s on my bucket list!
