  • 8 thick slices Texas toast or Challah bread I’ve also used fresh cinnamon raisin bread!⁣

  • Lay bread in single layer on cookie sheet. Leave uncovered overnight to allow bread to harden a bit.⁣
  • Mix together batter in a shallow baking dish. Ensure all ingredients are well combined and eggs are beaten. (You can also combine batter ingredients in a blender and pour into a shallow baking dish!). Lay bread in mixture allowing the first side to soak up batter for roughly 30-45 seconds.
