Josh’s Challah French Toast

Josh’s Challah French Toast Related:   breakfast & brunch, dairy, kid-friendly, North America, vegetarian

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 10–15 minutes

Yield: 4 servings

There is no real recipe for this wonderful breakfast and it differs slightly every week. The challah itself changes in consistency week to week which affects the outcome of the French toast. This is the single dish my husband cooks with our children.


  • 8 slices of challah, at least one day old
  • 3–4 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup
  • A pinch of cinnamon (optional)
  • Butter for the pan


  • Mix the eggs, milk, maple syrup and cinnamon in a large bowl with a fork or whisk. Place each slice of challah in one by one and make sure the egg mixture covers both sides and soaks through.
  • Heat butter in a large pan over medium high and melt butter on it. Place each slice of challah on it, rotating sides until nicely browned all over. This will likely take a few minutes per side depending on how hot your stove is.
  • Serve with maple syrup, fresh berries, and some yogurt or ricotta if you’re feeling fancy.
