Eggnog French Toast

Eggnog French Toast

This recipe is just a little variation of your standard French Toast recipe. Instead of milk, use Eggnog. Instead of cinnamon, use some nutmeg. It's that simple and festive too! A little dusting of cinnamon sugar and some maple syrup make it ultra tasty.

So if you have a favorite French Toast recipe already and are comfortable swapping out ingredients, sub the same amount of milk for Eggnog and then for the nutmeg use half the measurement used for cinnamon. (For example, if your recipe calls for 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, use 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg instead.) The key is the Eggnog so don't fret over the nutmeg; it's sure to be tasty however you make it.

Ingredients

  • 4 whole eggs
  • 8 to 10 slices of white, wheat or french bread (thicker bread yields fewer)
  • 1/4 cup Eggnog
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 pat butter
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon powdered sugar
  • Maple Syrup if desired

Directions

Heat the griddle to approximately 315-325 degrees or whatever temperature you typically use for pancakes should work just as well for this. Take a little pat of butter and rub it over the griddle.

Measure out the 1/4 cup Eggnog. Break 4 eggs into the Eggnog and then beat with a whisk. Add 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg and salt (if desired), then beat it into the mixture. Pour the contents into a 9x9 baking dish.

Quickly dip and then flip over a slice of bread. Do not soak the bread! Place the bread onto the lightly buttered griddle. When the bread starts to steam, loosen it with a spatula and flip it over. The french toast should look like toasted bread when well cooked, so flip it over a few times if needed.

Mix the teaspoon of cinnamon with the powdered sugar. If you have a spare shaker, you can dust some of the mixture over the Eggnog French Toast. Otherwise, take a few pinches and sprinkle it over the toast by hand. If you'd like, add some of your favorite maple syrup. Enjoy!
