Let's Make Challah French Toast!

This is a place holder image for bridge blog posts without an image selected.

Challah is soft, yet chewy, making it perfect for French toast. Day-old challah, in particular, acts like a sponge, soaking up the egg and milk mixture for a delicious breakfast!


  • 6 large eggs
  • ½ cup whole milk
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 8 slices challah or brioche, cut 1-inch thick
  • 1-½ tablespoons unsalted butter


Prepare your french toast.  Beat the eggs, milk and vanilla extract in a large shallow pan until well blended. Add the bread slices and let them soak for 4-5 minutes, turning them occasionally, until all of the liquid has been absorbed. Heat the butter on a griddle or large sauté pan over medium heat. When the butter has melted and looks foamy, cook the soaked bread slices for 2-3 minutes per side or until lightly browned and crispy.

Note: use two pans or cook half the slices at a time and keep cooked slices warm in a preheated 140-degree oven (repeat with the remaining slices).

Help the Unseen

You can heed the biblical mandate “not to turn away from your own flesh and blood” (Isaiah 58:7) and provide a needy elderly Jew, like Olga, with food, heating fuel, warm clothes, and blankets this winter. Every day is important as the harsh cold winds descend upon the former Soviet Union. Please prayerfully consider giving your best and most generous gift to The Fellowship today for this lifesaving work.
