  • 3 large eggs
  • ¾ cup whole milk or half and half
  • Zest of ½ orange
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

Fall weekends call for cozy brunches in the comfort of your own home - and there is perhaps no dish as effortless yet impressive as the perfect french toast. This version - made with challah, apples, and honey - not only captures the flavors of the season, but incorporates ingredients traditionally eaten during Rosh Hashanah to symbolize the sweetness that we hope the coming year will bring. 

Pick up a challah loaf at your local Le Pain Quotidien on and put together this decadent toast that will help you and your brunch guests ring in the new year sweetly!

Instructions:

  1. Whisk together the eggs, milk, orange zest, vanilla, honey and salt in a shallow dish or bowl.
  2. Add bread slices to the mixture and gently press them down so they are completely submerged. Let the bread soak in the mixture for 5-7 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, heat a pan over medium heat and melt butter. Cook the toast slices until they are golden brown on each side.
  4. Top with apple slices, cinnamon and a drizzle of honey.
