French Toast

The other day while at Lucky’s Market my new favorite grocery store in Missoula, I noticed a loaf of Challah, which is a slightly sweet, eggy  bread. It is a traditional Jewish bread. It is great plain, or with a little butter (even better with a little honey or jam). But let me tell you it makes EXCELLENT French Toast.


  •  slices  Cahalla (or your favorite bread)
  •  tablespoons melted butter 
  • 1 1/2 cups  milk
  •  large eggs
  •  tablespoon sugar
  •  teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • A pinch of nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/ cup flour


Berries, whipped cream, butter, powdered sugar or syurp of choice.


  1. Melt 2 tablespoons of the butter and allow to cool slightly so it will not cook the eggs
  2. Whisk melted butter with the milk, eggs, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt in a bowl.
  3. Slowly whisk in the flour until smooth.
  4. Pour the batter into a shallow dish ( a pie pan works great).
  5. Dip bread in the batter and briefly soak both sides, about 30 seconds per side.
  6. Meanwhile, melt 1 tablespoon butter on a griddle (or in a 12 inch non-stick skillet)
  7. Remove the bread from the batter, allowing excess batter to drip back into the dish, and lay in the hot griddle/skillet.
  8. Cook until golden brown on both sides, about 2 1/2 minutes per side.
