chiiiiliiis. baby back toast.

challah is a sweet eggy bread like brioche. it is braided so fine. it is meant for french toast, you know.

two slices challah are sandwiched with barely sweet ricotta cheese.
it is plunged into french toast custard dip...eggs, milk, cinnamon, vanilla.
it meets the hot griddle. it sizzles and oozes good morning smells.

maple syrup bath to follow.

Ricotta Stuffed Challah French Toast

2 slices challah
2 eggs
splash of milk, about 1/4 cup
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

1/2 cup ricotta
1-2 tsp sugar

oil or butter for griddle
maple syrup

mix the sugar into the ricotta. spread onto one slice of challah and top with the other. whisk up the eggs, milk, vanilla, and cinnamon in a wide bowl. let challah soak well in the custard on both sides while you head a griddle over medium heat and grease with oil or butter. when pan is hot add stuffed challah and cook undisturbed for a few minutes until golden. flip and cook on the other side til golden. serve immediately with maple syrup.
