Eggnog French Toast
Eggnog French Toast is the perfect fun and festive holiday breakfast. This is one of my family’s favorites. In the fall, our go-to is Pumpkin French Toast. But as soon as the Christmas tree is up, we switch over to eggnog French toast. It is a super quick and easy breakfast, or dinner, at Christmas time!
I recommend using Artesano Broiche Bakery Bread because that is a common brand available in most grocery stores. It has the right thickness and density for french toast. Any of the varieties will work in this recipe. If you have a bread that you already know makes great French toast, go with that! Finding the right bread for French toast had always been a struggle for me, so I have been thrilled to find a brand that I can use consistently.
How to Make Eggnog French Toast
- In a pie dish or large mixing bowl, combine egg, eggnog, nutmeg and vanilla extract. I recommend using a good quality eggnog and freshly grated nutmeg.
- I use a large nonstick electric griddle that can cook 6 slices at a time. I divide the recipe into two batches and melt one tablespoon of butter on the griddle before cooking each batch.
- Dip both sides of the bread into the eggnog mixture and quickly shake off any excess.
- Cook on hot griddle until both sides are golden brown.
- Serve with warm maple syrup, whipped cream and sugared cranberries if desired.
