Savory Challah French Toast

I completely stole this idea from this crazy delicious brunch I had at Black Sheep. I saw this on the menu and it had every delicious item you could ever imagine smothered on top of French Toast. I’m talkin’ gruyere cheese, country ham, caramelized pears, red wine onions, and lots of maple syrup. Definitely weight watchers approved. I recreated this on Sunday and could not be more happy with my version, that I tweaked with what I had on hand and what is in season. Take a look:
