Feed Me: Challah French Toast

Happy 2012! Lucky for me one of my goals (run a marathon) requires me to consume more carbs than ever before.So I decided that it would be appropriate to start 2012 off by making a carb rich breakfast.

I happened to have a loaf of Challah bread from the holidays, and French toast with challah has become one of my recent favorite brunch orders. Using Challah bread takes French toast to the next level. Although I had never made French toast before, I have certainly tried enough to know it wouldn’t be too difficult. I googled a few recipes for inspiration and tips, but in the end I followed my own instincts. I started off with the ingredients below.

Servings: 2 Pieces per person (Ended up with left-overs…very filling)

Directions:

Cut the Challah bread into 1/2″-3/4″ slices.

Add to a shallow bowl or plate: 5 Large Eggs, a cup of milk, Cinnamon (it’s up to you how much to add; I added a few shakes), and 1/2 teaspoon of Vanilla Extract.

Mix ingredients up with a fork or a whisk.

Soak the Challah bread for two mins on each side-this really made the final product extra delicious.

Heat pan to medium heat with butter (I added some vegetable oil as well).

Fry each side 2-3 mins until the bread is a nice golden brown.

The husband voted for syrup to top it off, but you can use powdered sugar, fruit, or anything else you like. I would even eat it plain.

Bacon made for a perfect side. Enjoy!
