A classic sandwich is now a beloved breakfast!

Ingredients

2
whole eggs
1/4
teaspoon kosher salt
1/2
teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2
cup whole milk
1
loaf challah bread, sliced into 6 (1-inch thick) slices
2
to 3 tablespoons peanut butter

to 2 tablespoons jam (use your favorite)
Butter and maple syrup, for serving

Directions

  • 1 In a shallow dish combine the two eggs, kosher salt, vanilla and whole milk. Whisk until thoroughly combined.

  • 5 Dip both sides of the stuffed French toast in the egg mixture and place in the hot buttered skillet. Cook until golden, flip and repeat with the remaining stuffed slices.
