Eggnog French Toast

Eggnog French Toast on a white plate

Eggnog French Toast is a holiday twist on a plain breakfast. Eggnog truly is the taste of Christmas and making french toast with it is not only delicious but easy. When serving a crowd this is an easy recipe to whip up that will impress your family and friends. Serve this drizzled with Buttermilk Bourbon Syrup and a Peppermint Mocha you will be at rock star status and nobody had to get up at 5 am to cook breakfast. That’s what I’m talking about since I am not a morning person and I do NOTHING before a cup of coffee touches my soul.

Honestly , eggnog comes out before Thanksgiving so this can be enjoyed as soon as you see it hit the shelves. This was actually our Breakfast on Thanksgiving morning. Since my oven was being taken up with a Turkey and dressing , this was the perfect breakfast .

Whisk together your favorite eggnog and eggs .

Whisk in the vanilla , rum extracts, cinnamon and nutmeg. Mix well until everything is incorporated .

Coat two pieces of your favorite bread . I used brioche but Texas Toast , french bread or just about any bread will do.

I had some day old (several days) sweet rolls that I sliced and used this recipe to make a bread pudding. I then made the bourbon buttermilk syrup. Everyone liked it VERY much. I’m making it again for Christmas morning.
