We bet you’ve heard of challah french toast…but have you ever heard of challah french-toast waffles?! If the answer is no, don’t worry, we hadn’t either until we met Miriam Caslow.

This recipe comes from Miriam  who is the President of the Jewish Women’s Foundation of New York and granddaughter Lynn Gindi. Thank you for sharing your tradition with us.

1 small challah cut into 1/2 inch slices
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 1/2 cups milk

For the waffles 
Preheat electric waffle maker.
In a shallow baking dish, beat eggs. Add all ingredients except the challah and mix together.

Spray waffle maker with oil and place slices of challah on waffle maker loosely fitting pieces next to each other.
Close waffle maker and cook at low temperature so it cooks through and is lightly brown.

Co-President Sydney Friedmann shares a perspective on how to spread awareness to new and transfer students at Temple University:

“Finding a strong team of transfer students and freshmen is going to be extremely important for Temple’s chapter this year. With some of the core members of the group graduating in the spring, we want dedicated owls to take over and expand the chapter for the coming years.”
