Expert Tips

  • Croissants are a great substitute for the challah bread in this recipe.
  • Challah tends to be moist bread. If you have a fresh loaf, you can dry out cubed bread by baking in 200°F oven 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Assemble, cover and refrigerate this bake the night before so it’s ready to uncover and pop in the oven in the morning. You may need to add an additional 5 to 10 minutes to bake time.
