Challah Bread French Toast

This lovely and light French toast is wonderful topped with maple syrup, blueberry jam or confectioners’ sugar.

Ingredients:
1 large loaf Challah bread
2 eggs
1½ cups milk
1 teaspoon grated orange zest
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon honey
½ teaspoon salt
Unsalted butter
Vegetable oil

Method:
1. Preheat the oven to 250°.

2. In a large shallow bowl or pan, whisk together the eggs, milk, orange zest, vanilla, honey and salt. Slice the Challah in ¾-inch thick slices. Soak the slices in the egg mixture for 5 minutes, turning once.

3. Heat 1 tablespoon butter and 1 tablespoon oil in a very large sauté pan over medium heat. Add the soaked bread and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side, until nicely browned. Place the cooked French toast on a sheet pan and keep it warm in the oven. Fry the remaining soaked bread slices, adding butter and oil as needed.
