challah french toast

If I see this on a brunch menu when I’m eating out, it’s usually my go to order. If you’re not familiar with it, Challah bread is a braided egg bread that is pretty easy to find at most supermarkets nowadays. You can substitute with another kind of bread such as French bread if you like, but the Challah bread makes for a really delicious rich, buttery french toast.

2 1-inch thick slices Challah bread
1 egg
1/4 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
Pinch salt
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
Maple syrup, for serving

1. Place challah bread in a baking dish and set aside.
2. In a medium bowl, whisk together egg, milk, vanilla, cinnamon and salt. Pour over bread, making sure to evenly coat bread slices. Let bread soak for 5 minutes. Turn bread over and soak for another 5 minutes.
3. In a medium sauté pan, heat 1 tablespoon butter over medium heat. Add bread slices and cook until lightly golden brown on both sides, about 3-4 minutes per side. Transfer to a serving plate and top with remaining butter and serve warm with maple syrup.

Serves 1.
