Challah French Toast

1 Comment


We had a lot of challah left over from a break the fast meal, and I decided to make French Toast with it.  I’ve actually never made French toast before, so used an Ina Garten recipe as a guide, and changed it around a bit (


4 eggs
1 cup 1% milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon honey
Cinnamon, nutmeg, and sea salt, to taste
Challah bread (I used 6 thick slices of it)
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon olive oil

Slice the challah bread.  In a large shallow bowl, mix together the eggs, milk, vanilla, honey, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt.  Soak as many slices of challah as will fit in the bowl for 5 minutes, turning once.

Heat the butter and oil in a large pan over medium heat.  Add the soaked challah to the pan and cook for a few minutes on each side, until lightly browned (I added a little spray oil before cooking the second batch).

Serve the french toast with toppings of your choice, or as is!  I served mine with some maple syrup and homemade applesauce.
