Lemon Curd ChallahFrench Toast

Challah is rich braided bread typically made with eggs.  It is perfect for making French toast.  If you don’t have Challah bread you can use Portuguese or Hawaiian bread. 


6 Large Eggs

¾ Cup Milk

¾ Cup Heavy Cream

1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract

2 Tablespoons Butter – Divided

1 Jar Lemon Curd

Maple Syrup (optional)

Preheat oven to 200° F.  In a shallow bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, cream and vanilla.  Heat 1 tablespoon butter in a large skillet over medium heat.  Slice off a 2 inch thick piece of bread.  Slice the piece of break half-way down (do not slice all of the way through) and insert two tablespoons lemon curd.  Dip bread in egg mixture, turning to coat thoroughly, then gently shake free any excess.  Repeat until loaf is completely sliced.  Arrange bread in skillet, flipping once, until deep golden brown and cooked through.  These little gems only take about 3 minutes per side.  Transfer to a large baking sheet and keep warm in the oven.  Transfer French toast to plates and top with maple syrup.  Serves 4
