Early Morning Fave, Challah French Toast

Day old Challah makes incredible french toast or bread pudding, but most any good quality, day old bread will work. Whole grain breads are good for you and are much yummier than some may think. Depending on your sin level for the week, use butter, but if you've been bad go for the smart balance spread, it's actually very good and it's all I use when I cook for myself.

Saute pan or griddle on medium heat.
Preheat oven to 200.
Whisk 3 eggs with 1 cup(ish) organic half and half, a pinch of sea salt, 2TB honey warmed in the micro, and 1 tsp vanilla. Nutmeg and a little citrus zest is a nice addition.
Dip sliced challah into egg mix and allow to rest for 30 sec to 1 minute, place on griddle 2 minutes and don't mess with it, just allow it to cook, after 2 min turn toast and allow to cook 1 to 1 1/2 minutes, place in oven and continue with remaining bread

Out of all the dishes by Om Chef, my favorite is the bread pudding with raspberies. I enjoy it most with a cup of coffee in the morning as a healthy alternative.
