In my opinion, Challah bread is the superior choice when it comes to French Toast. Challah bread is already buttery giving it great flavor and it’s fairly dense so it holds up to being soaked in the egg mixture.
Holiday and Special Occasion Breakfast
In my family I’m the chief French Toast maker for holidays like Easter brunch and Christmas morning. It’s kind of become a tradition that I’m happy to oblige. French Toast is one of my very favorite breakfast foods and it always feel like a special treat when I get to indulge.
- 1 loaf fresh Challah bread
- 6 eggs
- 1/4 cup whole milk
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 3 pats of butter
- warm maple syrup
- powder sugar
- fresh fruit
- Slice bread 1.5″ thick
- In a shallow container, like a pie plate, combine the eggs, milk, vanilla, honey, cinnamon and nutmeg. Whisk well until everything is combined.
- In a medium skillet, melt one pat of butter. Dip both sides of the bread in the egg mixture then cook the slices until golden brown on both sides.
- Serve with warm syrup and a side of fresh fruit. Garnish with powdered sugar if desired.
