Breakfast on Christmas morning is all about spending time with your family and those you love. This recipe is a great way to enjoy a delicious, beautiful breakfast without the morning fuss. Some quick and easy prep work the night before while Santa’s finishing up wrapping all the gifts is all it takes. We chose challah bread for its beautiful crust and spongy texture, but you can substitute brioche for more richness, or any other white bread that you need to use up (stale, dry bread works best for this recipe!). Whip up an easy custard flavored with lots of vanilla and our star ingredient: Cardamom, a spice popular in Scandinavian Christmas sweets. Pour the custard over the bread, load it in your Suvie and when you wake up your Christmas breakfast is ready to eat and enjoy.

Ingredients:

12.14.18-003
  • 1 loaf Challah bread
  • 4 eggs
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 tbsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp cardamom
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg
  • ¼ tsp ginger
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tbsp butter (for greasing pan)

Instructions

Slice the challah bread into ½ inch thick slices. Trim the bottom or ends so that it fits easily in your Suvie tray. Grease the Suvie tray with the butter, making sure all of the corners are well greased. Place any odd pieces of the trim in the bottom of the tray, then place the pretty bread slices on top, make sure they don’t stick too far above the top of the tray.

12.14.18-007

In a large bowl whisk together 4 eggs, milk, vanilla, and brown sugar until smooth. Add the spices and a pinch of salt and whisk vigorously to combine. (The spices tend to settle at the bottom so make sure to whisk again right before you pour the custard over the bread.)

12.14.18-009

Make sure all of the bread is tucked into the pan, then pour the custard mixture over the bread.

12.14.18-012

Gently press the bread down to remove any air pockets.

Cover with aluminum foil and load in your Suvie. Enter Slow Cook settings and cook.

Coffee Pairing

We recommend pairing this dish with a good cup of freshly brewed Sumatran coffee. The herbal notes of the coffee will pair beautifully with the cardamom.
