Egg-rich challah bread makes rich and delicious French toast. Topped with fresh fruit, it makes breakfast a real treat for your family!

Challah French Toast

8          large eggs

1½        cups reduced-fat milk

1          tablespoon pure vanilla extract

2          tablespoons pure maple syrup

1          teaspoon ground cinnamon

1          pinch ground nutmeg

1 to 2   pinches table salt

8 to 10 slices challah bread, ¾-inch thick (Depending on the size of the loaf, you will find between 8 and 10 slices will soak up all of the batter. Should be about ¾ of a 1-pound loaf.)

           confectioners’ sugar for serving

           fresh fruit for serving


1.  Put the eggs, milk, vanilla, maple syrup, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt into a medium bowl.  Whisk to fully combine and pour into a 13 x 9-inch baking dish.

2.  Soak half of the bread in the milk mixture, turning so both sides are saturated.

3.  Fit the Griddler®  Deluxe with the griddle plates and preheat both plates to 350°F. Once preheated, put the soaked bread on the hot griddle.* Cook 3 to 5 minutes per side. If all bread does not fit on the griddle plates at one time, soak remaining bread while first batch of French toast is cooking.

4.  Remove and reserve the cooked French toast in a warm oven and then repeat with remaining soaked bread if necessary.

5.  To serve, dust with confectioners’ sugar and top with fresh fruit and maple syrup, if desired.

*The French toast can also be cooked in the Closed griddle position. Preheat both plates to 350°F in the Closed position, put 2 to 4 pieces on the plate, depending on how many fit, and close the Griddler. Cooking time will be only about 2 to 3 minutes and you do not need to flip!  Repeat with the remaining soaked bread.
