Preparation

  1. In a deep cake pan or pie dish, whisk together the eggs, heavy cream, parsley, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt, and pepper until smooth.
  2. Dip each slice of challah in the egg mixture for about 30 seconds per side, until the bread absorbs the egg, but is not soggy.
  3. Melt a pat of butter in a large pan over medium heat. Working in batches if needed, cook the French toast until golden brown, about 2 minutes on each side.
  4. Serve immediately with your toppings of choice, such as roasted red pepper cream cheese, cherry tomatoes, bacon, chives, and a drizzle of hot honey.
  5. Enjoy!
