I should start this post out by letting you know I have always been a little ‘out of the box’ when it comes to food. This is especially the case when it comes to both desserts and breakfast. I’m that person who will proudly forego actual meals just so that I have room for cake. I am also the person who will eat breakfast morning, noon, and night.
No one knows this more than A. Living with me for the past 2 months has opened his eyes wide to the sweet tooth/cereal loving girl he has agreed to share his life with. He loves it! (He better). To help him jump on my bandwagon, I recently offered to make him a decadent breakfast: Challah French Toast. Dipping heavily egged bread into more eggs wrapped in cinnamon and vanilla, grilling it up and topping it with powered sugar……I’m drooling thinking about it.
The thing I love about most about this recipe is that it is quick and easy. There are only a handful of ingredients and most of them you already have in your house! Quickly whisk eggs, cinnamon, a drop of vanilla and some milk (your choice of which kind) into a bowl. While doing this, warm a pan on the stove and melt down some butter.
Now comes the star of the show – the challah bread! Challah is mostly known for being the bread that is eaten on Sabbath and Jewish holidays, but there are actually a ton of recipes out there that you can use this festive bread for. I especially love the braided look and eggy taste!
Slice down the challah and immerse each piece fully into the wet mix (above). Place each piece on the pan and let it cook down until you get a slight brown crisp on the bread. Powered sugar is optional, but it will definitely add a nice touch (and punch of sweetest) to these savory bites.
Now, smother those pretty pieces of bread in syrup and dive in!Pin It
