Eggnog French Toast Recipe
I love how easy this Eggnog French Toast is to make! It is a great Christmas morning breakfast paired with your favorite sides like bacon, sausage, hashbrowns, and eggs.
Such a fun twist on classic French Toast.
Have you been following along on my quest to use all of the eggnog I bought from Costco? I am happy to say I have finally finished one of the giant jugs of eggnog and moved onto the second container. Who knew there could be so much eggnog in 2 Costco size jugs. LOL!
My husband keeps laughing that everything I am making has eggnog in it right now...which is so true. I may have a goal list of eggnog recipes to perfect leading into Christmas.
This is the only time of year I can find jugs of eggnog at the store so I am making the best of it and working on a ton of new recipes. At some point I will make a homemade eggnog but I need to get through all of the containers I bought from Costco first.
I am guessing if you are reading this recipe post that you are on team eggnog or someone in your family is. I have found that most people are either for eggnog or absolutely hate it and there isn't much middle ground.
My sister in law has been sending me hilarious meme's about her hate of eggnog.
What is your favorite holiday breakfast? Do you have a specific menu you make for Christmas breakfast? This holiday season we are trying a ton of new things and seeing what we want to share in the future.
We love pairing this French toast with Eggnog Coffee!

How to make Eggnog French Toast
Step 1 - Add all ingredients into an 8x8 baking dish or similar dish.
One of the best parts of this recipe is you can mix everything together in one baking dish.
Step 2 - Whisk all of the ingredients together until evenly mixed and the eggs are broken up.
Step 3 - Place bread slice in eggnog mixture and soak on both sides. Make sure to push down the middle section to ensure it is evenly coated with the outer edges.
Step 4 - Remove bread slice from egg nog mixture making sure to allow excess batter to drip off.
Place in a heated pan with butter or non-stick spray already sprayed in it.
Cook on both sides until nice and golden brown.
Step 5 - Serve with maple syrup, whipped cream, and all of your favorite toppings.
Make sure to use sturdy enough bread that it will not all apart after soaking in the eggnog batter. There is nothing like picking the slice of bread up and having it fall apart before you can get it into the heated pan.
Thick cut bread will hold up great for this recipe.
