Foodie Friday: Challah French Toast

Happy Foodie Friday!!!!!

Itโ€™s date night for me and the hubs so Iโ€™m posting a dish I did a while back that I wanted to humble brag on lol!

This one I found out about through my father in law (hi Dad ๐Ÿ‘‹) and he made it for me and my mother in law on Motherโ€™s Day. My husband also got a chance to sample the flavors and he liked it so much that he had me make it for him on Fatherโ€™s Day. I believe the recipe is by Tori Avey.

Let me start of by saying Iโ€™m by default a medium fan of French toast. Itโ€™s not the number one thing I go for on the menu, but if someoneโ€™s offering it Iโ€™m not going to say no. I would also like to say this was the FIRST time Iโ€™ve ever made French toast and all the odds were against me.

I LOVE THIS FRENCH TOAST. It was amazing when I had it the first time and I liked it so much even the second time. What makes it unique is the recipe calls for a ripe banana to merge the flavors together. I would have never thought to put a banana in there but it works!

The challah bread is light, airy, and soaks up syrup nicely (silly me, I thought French toast was made with regular loaf bread ๐Ÿคญ). I thought the banana would make it too sweet, but it adds a mild note of sweetness thatโ€™s not overwhelming for those of us that canโ€™t take layers of sugar.

I added my own sides of scrambled eggs, mixed berries, and no that’s not regular bacon, that my friends is duck bacon! Get you some ๐Ÿ˜‹

Anywhoo, my husband was very pleased with at my first attempt and has put this on his list of go to’s. So I suppose for the next few breakfasts I’ll be serving French toast challah style!

‘Til next time, happy eating ๐Ÿ˜
