Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a small baking pan with non-stick cooking spray.
Slice Challah into 1-inch thick slices.
Layer bread slices into pan with berries in between slices.
Whisk together eggs and half & half.
Pour egg mixture over bread, moving the slices slightly to ensure the egg mixture gets in between each slice.
Bake for 30-35 minutes or until slices have turned golden in color and until a knife inserted in center comes out clean.
Garnish with additional berries and dust with powdered sugar. Serve with warm syrup, if desired.
Fresh or stale challah bread can be used for this recipe.
Whole milk can be substituted for the Half & Half.
Any desired combination of berries can be used or a single type of berry. The amount should be equivalent to 1 1/2 cups.
How to store leftovers
Store any leftovers store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to two days. Reheat in the microwave before serving.
Individual servings can also be quickly reheated in a hot large nonstick skillet or cast iron skillet in a bit of melted unsalted butter! It will give the slices a nice crust. Serve with real maple syrup.
