Challah Bread is a egg bread that is a Jewish bread made for the Sabbath. At least, Wikipedia says so. My wife is not Jewish, and she loves Challah bread any day of the week. Now, I haven’t gotten to working with yeast breads…yet. We buy ours at the supermarket. Normally, we just eat the bread as is with nothing on it. It really is that good. However, sometimes I want more.
This particular day after the Jewish Sabbath, I wanted French Toast.

Ingredients: Challah bread sliced, 1/8 cup of sugar, teaspoon cinnamon, 1 egg, ½ cup of milk, ½ tablespoon of butter (more if needed). Serves 2.
Process: Whisk the milk and the egg until beaten. Mix the sugar and cinnamon in another bowl (or you can just buy the McCormick premixed version…but then you can’t control how much sugar if you do). Give the bread a bath in the milk/egg mixture. When you bathe the second side of the bread, sprinkle the mixture to your liking on the bread. Meanwhile, you should have heated a pan with the butter on medium heat. Put the cinnamon sugar side down, and the sprinkle the other side. Repeat, until you do all the slices. Serve with maple syrup, fruit, or whatever else you like.
Results: The French toast was flavorful and filling.
Verdict: Since we are trying to go through a lifestyle change (alright, we are dieting), this is a special treat meal. I would have taken pictures, but we ate it too fast.
