Waffle French Toast

First, let me tell you how I've been making waffles lately, because they're pretty good.  No, I don't make them from scratch (remember, I have four little kids).  I use a packaged mix - my current favorite is Trader Joes Buttermilk pancake and waffle mix.  I mix the waffle batter according to the package directions.  Then I add: a teaspoon or two of vanilla, a teaspoon or two of cinnamon, and maybe about a 1/2 cup of finely chopped walnuts (I've got a nifty little nut chopper).  I've been doing the cinnamon and vanilla for a long time, but I recently tried the nuts and it was really good.  One time I added a little almond extract, and that was pretty good too. 
I always make extra waffles.  I stick them in the freezer and they're great to warm up for an easy breakfast or snack for the kids.
But sometimes they get a little dry before freezing.  So this is a great way to use the leftover waffles, and it's a great way to make really interesting french toast.  A couple eggs, a little milk, some cinnamon and vanilla. Soak the pieces of waffle, cook in a bit of melted butter (I used too much).  They're tasty enough that no syrup is needed, all the kids liked it.
