Dairy Challah at a Meat Meal


[Note: Generally, Jewish law prohibits dairy bread, because people often eat meat with bread. However, it is permitted to make dairy bread of a particular shape/size; the specifics are beyond the scope of this post.]

One may use dairy challah as one of the two loaves for a meat meal on Shabbat. Even should one contend that the challah must be bread which could be eaten at that meal, there is no problem in using it. Theoretically, one could eat dairy, and then clean his mouth and eat meat. We don't do this at one meal because it invites error, but it is technically an acceptable practice.

Having said this, it is advisable not to use the dairy bread, if at all possible, at a meat meal.

(Rivivot Ephraim 1:202)
