Blame it on my momma, but I’ll eat anything you can pour syrup on like biscuits, pancakes, waffles, and…french toast. Actually, this little recipe is something I picked up from dear mom. Think of it as a Southern twang on a Pain Perdu. The special ingredient just happens to be eggnog or more specifically the burbon I put in the eggnog.
This recipe is fairly simple. You need eggnog, bread, and some fixings. I’m all about freshness, but even day-old french bread will do for this one. If you don’t find any eggnog in the stores since it’s not the “holidays”, you can always make your own. Get my Boozie Eggnog recipe here. Everything else you need should be in your kitchen cupboard.
How To Make French Toast With Eggnog (spiked Bourbon optional)
8 1-inch thick slices French bread*
1 cup refrigerated Eggnog
1/2 teaspoon ground Nutmeg
1/4 cup Butter, divided
Sifted Powdered Sugar
Fresh Fruit and Syrup
Cut your bread into 1 inch thick pieces.* Mix your eggnog and nutmeg in a wide, shallow bowl. Preheat griddle to around 350degrees and melt 2 tablespoons butter. Dip bread in eggnog mixture and making sure really soak it. Cook slices two to four minutes on each side or until brown. You can add more butter if needed. Plate and serve.
Don’t leave your french toast naked. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Fresh fruit and syrup also hit the spot. Now you can certainly eat the french toast solo or you can pair it with another egg dish like my Everything but the Kitchen Sink Frittata. Like I said, Eggnog French Toast is the perfect dish for a big family breakfast or when you’re having your girlfriends over for brunch. This recipe makes 4 to 6 servings, and you’ve probably got enough bread and eggnog to make more.
