Eggnog: The base of our French toast batter is made with eggnog. So grab your favorite one or whip up some of your own. We used our alcohol free eggnog recipe.
Bread: We used Texas toast bread for our French toast. I like it because it's nice and thick. But you can use any white bread you like.
Spices: We flavored our French toast with ground cinnamon and nutmeg. The flavors pair so well with the eggnog and definitely taste just like Christmas.
- Vanilla extract
The key to a great eggnog French toast, starts with the eggnog!
Make sure to grab a high quality eggnog from the store or make your own homemade eggnog.
The French toast will take on the spices and flavors of the eggnog, giving it the festive flair.
Then start by grabbing a large mixing bowl. Add in your eggnog, eggs, spices and vanilla extract.
Whisk everything together until well blended.
Then heat up your skillet on a medium high heat and add your butter and wait until it's nice and melted.
Dip your slices of bread into the eggnog mixture, making sure to coat both sides well.
I like to let the bread soak for a good 10 to 15 seconds to absorb some of the moisture.
Carefully remove the bread from the egg mixture and let the excess drip off back into the bowl.
Then place it onto the hot griddle. Repeat the process with more bread until your pan is full.
Fry each piece of French toast for 2 to 3 minutes until it's cooked and golden brown.
Then flip it with a spatula and cook the other side for 2 to 3 minutes until also golden.
And that's it! You'll have lots of slices of yummy Eggnog French toast in no time.
Serve them hot with your favorite French toast toppings, like butter, real maple syrup or powdered sugar.
To keep your French toast warm while you work, preheat your oven to 250 degrees. Then pace a metal wire rack on a rimmed baking sheet.
Then pop your finished French toast into the oven while you finish cooking the rest.
You can transfer your French toast batter to a shallow dish to make dipping your bread easier.
