Challah French Toast

Challah, a rich braided bread typically made with eggs, is perfect for making French toast. Drizzle with honey instead of maple syrup or a light dusting of powder sugar. Grab Burton's Maple Syrup, Wildflower Honey, fresh farm eggs from Trader's Point Creamery and a fresh local baked Challah at Shapiro's Deli.

Working with 4 or 5 slices at a time, dip challah in egg mixture, turning to coat thoroughly, then gently shake free of any excess. Arrange challah in skillet in a single layer and cook, flipping once, until deep golden brown and cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a large baking sheet as done and keep warm in the oven. Repeat with remaining butter, challah and egg mixture.

Transfer French toast to plates, top with syrup and berries and serve.
