Not Your Average French Toast!
If you enjoy eggnog for the holidays and French toast for breakfast, you’ll love this recipe! It has the definite flavor of eggnog for a yummy breakfast treat. Make some for Christmas morning, New Year’s brunch, or any time you want an easy way to make breakfast special.
I love eggnog but it really is rich and sweet…just a bit too much for me these days. So when I have company over I will often make or buy a small batch of eggnog to share. And we usually have extra after our guests leave.
So this time I used the leftover eggnog to dress up a batch of French toast for breakfast. It was a huge hit with my family! Topped with whipped cream and a sprinkle of nutmeg or cinnamon to make it even more delicious…they ate every last bite!
Here’s the super easy recipe…
Eggnog French Toast
- 6 slices bread whole wheat for a healthier option
- 4 eggs
- 1 1/3 cups eggnog
- Preheat a greased griddle on medium heat.
- Crack the eggs into a mixing bowl and beat by hand.
- Add the eggnog to the bowl and combine thoroughly.
- Dunk a slice of bread in the egg mixture until it is soaked.
- Place soaked bread on hot griddle and fry until browned on the bottom. Flip bread over and brown the other side. Remove from griddle.
- Repeat with the remaining slices of bread.
- Fry any remaining egg mixture…it is delicious all by itself!
- Top French toast with butter, syrup, whipped cream, or jam.
- Refrigerate any leftovers…who am I kidding, there won't be any leftovers!
Don’t Fuss Over Breakfast!
Okay, making the whipped cream to top this French toast might be a little fussy! But you don’t have to do that…in fact, it will melt when you put a dollop on top of your hot breakfast. Ahem.
Top your French toast with real maple syrup, homemade applesauce, pumpkin butter, or jam. Try a drizzle of caramel sauce or just add a pat of butter and a sprinkle of brown sugar…the eggnog French toast is already slightly sweet and you might not want any extra sugar.
