A couple of weeks ago, the boys and I went out to bunch with some friends and we ordered Eggnog French toast. It was delicious, and I decided I needed to try to replicate it at home. I found this recipe online at allrecipes.com and it seemed pretty close. I only modified it slightly. It would make a perfect Christmas Morning breakfast! My boys gobbled it up.
Eggnog French Toast
1 1/2 cups Eggnog
2 teaspoons Pumpkin Pie Spice (I used this brand, but you can use whatever your favorite is)
Firm white bread (such as Challah or French)*
*I used a particularly yummy loaf of bread from Tabora Farm. It was a large, rounded loaf and I used 1 1/2 batches of the batter mixture to make the entire loaf. One batch of batter will probably need at least half a loaf of bread, depending on the size of the bread and how much batter it soaks up. You can also substitute whole grain bread, it will just be a little denser. Since the eggnog has about a zillion calories anyway, I figured this would just be a splurge!
1. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, eggnog, and pumpkin pie spice. Pour batter into a shallow dish and thoroughly coat each slice of bread.
2. Cook french toast on a lightly greased electric skillet (set to 300 degrees) or in a skillet on the stove over medium heat, until golden brown, flipping once.
