Step 1: 

In a medium bowl, beat the eggs together. Next add the half and half, salt, cinnamon and vanilla and mix until combined.

Step 2: 

Using the peanut butter, cover two pieces of your challah bread. Continue and repeat until the bread is covered.

On one side of the bread sprinkle some of the bacon and on the other side, place a few of the sliced bananas. Sandwich both pieces together and put the sandwich in the egg mixture and let sit on one side for at least a minute.

Paska French Toast

It’s Sunday and we all know what that means! Brunch Day! And one of our favorite brunch items is French Toast! But not that kind of French Toast that has excess eggs. That’s actually one of our breakfast pet peeves, we ordered French Toast, not egg toast.

A couple of weeks ago we had breakfast at one of our favorite deli’s, Nate and Al’s. And I (Marlee) ordered the French Toast and was totally disappointed when my French Toast had all that extra egg business. So when we came home, we wanted to make the kind of French Toast we like.

Bad French Toast:

Eggy No No

Good French Toast:

Paska French Toast

We obviously utilized our delicious Easter Bread, but you can very easily use challah, brioche, or really any bread of your choosing. But if you happen to make our Paska Bread, then you must try our Paska French Toast!

  • 6 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups semi crushed Corn Flakes (optional)
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons butter

**This recipe is easily halved, if you only have half a loaf don’t worry just half everything (except for the cinnamon, vanilla, and salt)!

Dip your Paska into the milk mixture and repeat on both sides. If you like the added crunch dip the Paska into the Corn Flakes, if you don’t skip this and put the Paska on the hot griddle.
