Menu Planning: Leftover Challah

Menu Planning: Leftover Challah

After all the holidays, we had a bunch of challot that we froze. Normally we put all the challah and bread ends in a bag in the freezer and then as needed make breadcrumbs out of the leftovers. But this year, I made some very large chocolate chip challot and I didn’t think those would work so well. So I was looking for ideas of what you could do with challot.

We make our challot pareve and our challah boards and knives are pareve. But I realize that some people make their challot in fleish ovens or fleish vessels. There are a couple of fleish or pareve recipes below, but most of these are dairy and call for milk or creamers. For some of them you might be able to substitute a pareve milk product like Soy, Almond, or Cashew.

Let me know if you have any good ideas.
