French Toast

Sunday morning breakfasts in our home range from cold cereal (hey, this is my only real vacation day all week!), pancakes made from Aunt Jemima mix (you can't expect me to make everything from scratch!), and French Toast made from leftover homemade challah.

This morning, feeling well rested and very domestic, I made a small batch of French Toast for the kids. Predictably, they ate every last drop! Here's the recipe.

French Toast
About four slices of leftover challah, preferably homemade, sliced about 1/2 inch thick
1/2 cup milk
2 eggs
A dash of cinnamon
A pinch of salt
1 teaspoon maple syrup

Mix together the milk, eggs, cinnamon, salt, and maple syrup. Lay the challah slices in the egg mix and soak for 2-3 minutes. Flip the slices over and let the other side soak for a couple of minutes.

Melt the butter in a frying pan (I like to use cast iron) on medium heat. When the butter is bubbling but not burning, add the soaked challah. Fry for 2-3 minutes per side, until golden.

Serve immediately with maple syrup on the side.
