Among many other things you can do with the challah bread recipe I posted yesterday, you can make this immensely decedent challah French toast. (Please note that this recipe isn't vegan, but it's definitely possible to make it so -- just follow these steps -- I have successfully made some amazing vegan French toast in my 26 years on this planet.) But what's interesting about me is that prior to this past Sunday, I had never, ever made "regular" French toast.
Basically: I wanted to give it a try. With eggs.
What you'll need . . . (to make four heaping helpings)
- Challah bread (recipe here)
- 4 eggs
- 1 cup milk or soy milk
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Butter or Earth Balance
Method . . .
- Slice challah into eight thick pieces. Set aside. Save the rest for other delicious creations (stay tuned for super easy grilled peanut butter and honey sandwich recipe).
- In a small bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla. Pour into a shallow container.
- In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, drop a teaspoon or so amount of butter and heat until it sizzles.
- Place three or four slices of challah bread in the egg mixture and let sit for about 1 minute. Then flip over a repeat on the other side.
- Transfer gooey bread slices to pan and cook on each side for 2-3 minutes, until lightly browned & cooked through.
- Repeat with remaining slices. You may need to add more butter to the pan between batches.
- Top with maple syrup, confectioners' sugar, and walnuts. Or anything, really.
