Challah French Toast-And Are a Lack of Ingredients Your Deterrent to Cooking?

Hi everyone. For many, not having ingredients on hand when the mood strikes to cook can be… a deterrent to cooking! If we plan ahead however and repurpose food, we can make certain dishes with ease.

Take our Whole wheat challah that we have during the week. It always goes stale in a couple of days. Instead of throwing it out every week, we simply plan to use the stale bread for our French toast. Even though it is whole wheat, the kids don’t notice because it is French toast which is always special to them. Try this easy recipe and let me know what you think.

Challah French Toast:
this serves one person but multiply ingredients as needed
3 small pieces of Whole Wheat Challah (about 3 inches long, 3 inches wide-preferably stale)
1 beaten egg
1/4 cup heavy cream or whole milk
1/2 tsp butter
optional 1/4 tsp vanilla
powdered sugar
fruit: cherries, strawberries, blueberries, whatevs

In a shallow, medium sized bowl, beat the egg, heavy cream or milk and vanilla.
Soak the pieces of challah in mixture for a few minutes
Heat up a griddle or non-stick pan , add butter and when it melts, add the challah. Cook until browned on both sides and inside is not runny (open up with a knife).
Sprinkle with powdered sugar and top with fruit of your choice. Can use agave syrup, regular syrup, jam, etc. Enjoy!

  1. Ironic you should post this. I keep planning to make challah french toast and our kids keep eating the challah before I can make it! Guess I need to hide it.

  2. If you poke a few small holes in the bread the egg mixture will mix in even better and really add taste to the challah
