Challah French Toast

Challah is so dense that it soaks up enough eggs to make a hen feel proud. It makes really splendid French Toast, don’t you think?

  • 6 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 8 slices challah or brioche, cut 1-inch thick
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter


Prepare you french toast.  Beat the eggs, milk and vanilla extract in a large shallow pan until well blended. Add the bread slices and let them soak for 4-5 minutes, turning them occasionally, until all of the liquid has been absorbed. Heat the butter on a griddle or large sauté pan over medium heat. When the butter has melted and looks foamy, cook the soaked bread slices for 2-3 minutes per side or until lightly browned and crispy.

Note: use two pans or cook half the slices at a time and keep cooked slices warm in a preheated 140-degree oven (repeat with the remaining slices).
