TO MAKE YOUR EGG MIXTURE. in your mixing bowl, whisk together your eggs, milk, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt.

Individually, take each slice of challah and dip it in your egg mixture. Flip it dip it again to make sure the challah is fully soaking up your egg mixture.

Lay 2-3 slices of your dredged challah onto your hot pan. Cook for 2 minutes, flip, and cook for another 2 minutes.  Repeat this process until all of your challah is cooked.
