Eggnog French Toast with Apple Cranberry Compote

(8 servings)    Printable Version
  • 4 cups unsweetened cider
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 cinnamon sticks or 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 vanilla bean split lengthwise or 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/4 cup orange zest
  • 4 pounds of small tart cooking apples - diced
  • 1 cup dried cranberries - chopped
  • 16 slices of Bias cut French bread (cut on an angle)
  • 1 quart eggnog
  • 1/2 cup of bourbon
  • pinches of cinnamon
  • dash of nutmeg
  • hint of cardamom
  • butter for cooking
FOR THE COMPOTE:

Place cider, sugar, cinnamon, vanilla and zest into a 6 quart pan and bring to a low simmer.

Add apples and cranberries. Cook for 6 minutes.

Strain and reserve both the liquid and the apple cranberry mixture, discarding the cinnamon sticks and vanilla bean if you used the stick and bean.

Place the liquid back into the pan and reduce by half - 30 to 40 minutes.

Cool and add the apples and cranberries back into this mixture and reserve

*Note: This can be done 2 days ahead and chilled.

FOR THE TOAST:

In a medium bowl, combine egg nog, Bourbon and spices and mix well.

Dip the slices of French bread into the seasoned eggnog and fill with 1 to 2 tablespoons of apple cranberry compote. Press firmly together and reserve.

Place 2 to 3 tablespoons of softened butter in a pan over stove and allow to melt and brown slightly. Place three or four sandwiches in the pan and cook until desired color is achieved (about 3 to 4 minutes on each side over medium heat).

Note: Serve immediately or keep warm in low oven. If desired, you may garnish with powdered sugar or whipped cream.


Rumor has it that this is what Santa Claus eats for breakfast every day, except for oatmeal Tuesday. Use Pippins for the apples if you can find them. the cider should be the non-alcoholic kind.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank Mr Breakfast for this recipe.
