French Toast

I do not eat much bread. I bought some Challah bread to make French Toast. I am thinking about partially cooking the entire loaf and freezing them to finish cooking later. Thoughts on this?

    I used to do it alot for my nephews. They liked mine better than my sisters. I made up batches and cooked them and froze them flat on cookie sheets and portioned them up. On reheated them in the microwave, the other in the toaster. So I politely disagree. It's up to you. It certainly makes quick work of breakfast. And if you like cinnamon in you batter add it to the vanilla or whatever extract your using first and it will distribute evenly throughout the batter. If you don't have extract or just want to mix it up, add a splash of flavored alcohol instead of vanulla. Frangellico,Grande Marnier, etc then add the cinnamon to that.

      Another vote for slicing and freezing the challah, but don't make the French toast until you're ready to eat it.

        How does one "partially cook" French Toast?????

          It would be better to just freeze the bread, either whole or sliced, than to bother partially cooking it into french toast. IME french toast does not reheat very nicely.

            This. If you want small portions freeze slices and take what you want as you want it.

              Definitely slice it before freezing.

              Freezing bread is ok, (for a normal duration of time) (if that is the question).
