This buttery French Toast recipe pairs perfectly with a chilled bottle of our 2011 Dry Gewürztraminer. This aromatic wine pairs beautifully with the orange and honey based batter. Garnish this decadent dish with your favorite seasonal fruit. Enjoy!
Preheat your oven to 250 degrees F.
Wisk together eggs, half and half, orange zest, vanilla, honey and salt. Slice Challah bread in thick 3/4 inch slices. Soak each slice in egg mixture for 5 minutes, turning once. Melt 1 Tablespoon Butter and 1 Tablespoon of Vegetable oil on large nonstick griddle over medium heat. Add the soaked bread and cook for 2 to 3 minutes on each side. Place the cooked French Toast on a sheet pan and keep warm in the oven. Serve with sliced fresh fruit, maple cured bacon and warmed syrup.
