Challah French Toast

Ina, the Barefoot Contessa, really pumps up the flavor of traditional french toast by using the eggy challah bread, orange zest, and vanilla. Pour real maple syrup over these warm slices for a great holiday breakfast.

Be sure to let the bread dry out a bit so it really soaks up that yummy custard.
