Challah French Toast

  • SERVINGS: 4
  • FAST
  • VEGETARIAN

A wonderfully decadent way to start the day is with French toast made with rich homemade challah. It's also a great use for any leftover challah you have.

  1. 3 extra-large eggs
  2. 1/2 cup milk
  3. 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  4. 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  5. Pinch of freshly grated nutmeg
  6. 2 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  7. Four 3/4 -inch-thick slices of Braided Challah , Loaf Pan Challah or Raisin Challah with a Cinnamon Swirl
  8. Warm pure maple syrup, for serving
  1. In a medium shallow baking dish or bowl, beat the eggs with the milk, cinnamon, vanilla and nutmeg until blended. Working with 1 challah slice at a time, soak the bread in the egg mixture, turning several times.
  2. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a large heavy skillet until bubbling. Add 2 of the soaked challah slices and cook until golden brown on the bottom, about 2 minutes. Turn and cook until golden brown on the second side, about 2 minutes longer. Repeat with the remaining egg-soaked challah. Serve hot with maple syrup.
