Can I eat this: French toast batter edition

I am making this French toast batter recipe. Can I leave the batter (includes raw eggs) in an airtight container in the fridge to use again tomorrow?

It's meant for four servings, and I'm only having one. I don't want to quarter the recipe as it wouldn't really work out with enough to entirely cover both pieces of challah.

Yes. Raw eggs are fine in the fridge for a couple of days.

As long as you cook the toast pretty well, it should be fine for a day or two. Or three.

You could half the recipe and then only have 1 more serving in the fridge to store? But yes, safe to keep for a few days.

I use an ad-hoc recipe like this for just me and use one egg to generously cover three pieces of bread, but I'm not sure how much challah you're using. I use watered-down Greek yogurt instead of milk and use that to adjust the richness.

not only can you do that; you could leave the bread in there too (as long as it's stale; you wouldn't do this with fresh bread, it would dissolve) and it will be super custardy when you cook it the next day.

^ Yes, you could make a strata with the remaining mix and some bread, too!
