Eggnog French Toast

Updated: Dec 1, 2021


I love Christmas and am dreaming about celebrating with a festive breakfast. So I decided to whip up the most scrumptious Eggnog French Toast. Thick slices of brioche bread soaked in a mixture of eggs, warm spices, and lots of eggnog are the perfect combination. The toast comes together quickly, and each bite tastes like Christmas. It's the perfect way to start the day.


Ingredients for Eggnog French Toast:

5 large eggs

2 cups eggnog

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon rum extract

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

10-12 slices brioche bread

Butter for frying

Serve with syrup and berries


Time-Saving Tip: Brew your coffee while you're making the French Toast because it comes together quickly.



We're ready to cook.











Add the eggs, eggnog, extracts, cinnamon, and nutmeg to a bowl and whisk until well blended.











Pour the egg mixture into a large glass baking dish. Add enough bread for a single layer and let rest for about 30 seconds and then turn over. Let rest while the griddle or pan is heating.


Lightly rub the griddle with butter. Gently transfer the brioche to the griddle. It will be very soft so you might need to use a spatula and a fork to transfer each slice. Cook until golden brown and then flip and continue cooking until the second side is also golden; repeat the process.


It's ready! Eggnog French Toast is the perfect Christmas breakfast. It's festive and so delicious that you might be making it all season long.


Enjoy!
