Challah makes some of the best French toast because of its spongey texture and buttery flavor. Buy a round loaf or long braided loaf of it to use for French toast — a great way to utilize leftover bread from any meal. Click here to see Lazy Sunday Brunch Recipes.
A yummy twist on classic French toast. The thickness and sweetness of the bread make this extra special. I found the bread in the bakery of my local grocery store. Fresh whipped cream makes it even better. I don't soak the bread as long as the recipe calls for. This is from Ina Garten/Barefoot Contessa at foodnetwork.com.
OH MY!!!! THIS IS BY FAR THE BEST FRENCH TOAST I HAVE EVER HAD!! YOU CAN USE STORE BOUGHT BREAD BUT IT'S NO WHERE NEAR AS GOOD THAN IF YOU USE MIRJ'S RECIPE. WE HAD THIS NEW YEARS DAY FOR THE FIRST TIME AND MY FAMILY LOVED IT TO SAY THE LEAST!! IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU USE A SHEET PAN IN THE OVEN TO KEEP THE SLICES WARM WHILE YOU COOK THE REMAINING SLICES!! I HOPE YOU AND YOUR LOVED ONES ENJOY THIS AS MUCH AS WE DID!! THE PREP TIME DOES NOT INCLUDE BAKING THE BREAD
