- Beforehand, leave 8 slices of 1/2 inch-thick challah bread out overnight, uncovered, to stale. If you can’t stale the bread overnight, set the slices on a baking sheet in an oven pre-heated to 200F for 10 minutes.
- Let cool fully before soaking in the egg mixture. In a large bowl, combine 2 cups whole milk, 4 beaten large eggs, 3/4 cup sugar, and 1/4 tsp vanilla extract and mix thoroughly.
- Soak the challah slices in the egg mixture for 5 minutes. Melt 1/4 cup butter in a large, heavy skillet and add 1/4 cup vegetable oil. Once the butter and oil are hot, fry the soaked bread slices one or two at a time on each side until golden brown.
- Drizzle 1 tsp of Soom Tahini and 1 tsp Soom Silan on each slice of french toast. Top off with a pinch of sea salt.
