Christmas French Toast
This is the super easy way to turn traditional French toast into a holiday treat. You make French toast in the usual way, except... you use prepared eggnog instead of milk. The beautiful thing is that eggnog already has all those super yummy holiday spices like cinnamon, nutmeg and sugar... so you don't need many other ingredients.
- 5 large eggs
2 cups eggnog
8 - 10 slices bread (I like a thick sliced plain-jane white bread)
butter - for frying
How To Make Christmas French Toast (The Easy Way)
In a large, fairly-shallow bowl, beat the eggs. Add the eggnog and beat until well combined and frothy.
Dip each slice of bread in the egg mixture and coat both sides.
Melt about 1 Tablespoon of butter per batch of French toast in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Fry bread until golden brown on the bottom - 2 or 3 minutes. Flip and fry other side to golden brown - about 2 minutes.
Keep slices warm in the oven (275 degrees) on a cookie sheet until ready to serve all at once. Top each serving with softened butter and warm maple syrup.
Cooking Notes From Recipe Submitter:
I don't add anything else this recipe, but if you really love an extra kick of spice, add on! I like to let my bread really soak up the mixture for 3-4 minutes before pan frying.
It's like eating dessert for breakfast, which is always fabulous! I sprinkle this french toast with powdered sugar. My mom likes it with cinnamon-sugar. My dad likes it with Steens Cane syrup (we're from south Louisiana).
This holiday-flavored French toast uses only four ingredients. The eggnog is already full of spices, so little else is needed.
Mr Breakfast would like to thank alowery for this recipe.
