This week I saw a absolutely gorgeous loaf of Challah(jewish egg bread) that I couldnt pass up. It sat on my counter for a few days until it was almost at the throw out stage. Me being the kind hearted soul that I am, I couldnt let this bread come close to missing its lifes purpose for a second time. So I made its last day on earth a good one....
- 4 eggs
- 1/4 c. half and half
- 2 tbsp sugar
- splash of vanilla
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- pinch of salt
- your favorite sliced bread(challah, french ect)
- margarine or butter (for frying)
Melt 2 tbsp of margarine or butter in a skillet over medium heat .In a bowl, combine all ingredients to create a custard. Dip and coat both sides of sliced bread in custard. Lay slices of coated bread in skillet. Fry for aproximately 1 1/2 to 2 minutes on each side. Keep an eye on them so they dont burn faster than they cook.
Once cooked, top with your favorites! Strawberries and whipped cream with maple syrup are favorites in our house :)
