Eggnog French Toast
This eggnog french toast is a simple and festive way to kick off Christmas morning or any winter weekend! I wasn’t a big fan of eggnog until my first holiday season working at Starbucks.
My fellow Baristas and I were always concocting new drinks and my all-time favorite is Eggnog Creme with Gingerbread Syrup. Over the last five years, it’s become a holiday staple and the season doesn’t officially start for me until I have one.
Since I love that drink so much, I’ve been adventuring more and more into the land of nog. Seriously though, if you don’t like eggnog, try it steamed, so much more amazing than drinking it cold!
Plus, I really do love using it as an ingredient in my holiday recipes, this Eggnog Cheesecake is one of my favorite Christmas desserts and this Eggnog French Toast is perfect for chilly mornings!
How many of you grew up on French toast? When I was a kid, my Nana made it for us a lot. It was usually a blend of eggs, milk, vanilla, and cinnamon coating slices of white bread that had been cooked on the griddle until golden brown.
Well, this holiday breakfast uses the same process but mixes those ingredients up a bit.
It’s a simple concept, replace the milk in your egg wash with creamy eggnog and the holidays are on full blast!
Add a splash of rum or rum extract for an extra boost of holiday spirit, oh and don’t forget that nutmeg, it’s essential to get the full holiday vibe!
Also, while you can use regular ole’ white bread, try it out with French bread! Instead of over saturated and eggy pieces, your Eggnog French Toast will be light and fluffy on the inside with a deliciously caramelized exterior.
This dish tastes like Christmas morning feels, the flavors are an amazing combination and the french toast’s aroma is crazy good.
Nog, nutmeg, and sugar… what’s not to love, right?
It’s easy enough to make and would make a great addition to a Christmas brunch! You can serve it topped with butter and maple or gingerbread syrup!
