Instructions- Let's make Eggnog French Toast!
Making Eggnog French toast is easy!
First, heat a griddle or skillet on medium heat.
Next, in a shallow baking dish, add eggnog, eggs, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Gently beat together. You don't need to over mix, just make sure the ingredients are well mixed.
Lightly grease the preheated surface.
Dip one slice of bread in eggnog mixture for ten seconds, turning to coat both sides.
Cook the bread on one side until golden brown, flip, and cook the other side until golden brown.
Serve with warmed syrup, whipped cream and or berries!
Hint: Don't forget to spray your griddle or skillet before cooking the Eggnog French toast to avoid sticking!
What bread should I use for French Toast?
When making french toast I love using thick white bread. This can include
- French Bread
- Italian Bread
- Texas Toast
I have even used a normal loaf of sandwich bread when I had a craving for French Toast but didn't have the bread listed above! The key to any bread is to make sure you don't soak it too long to avoid it getting soggy!
Eggnog French toast is so fun to change up! Have you seen all the Eggnog choices you have at the grocery store?
While this recipe calls for traditional Eggnog, you can substitute with
- Fire Ball Eggnog
- Cinnamon Eggnog
- Pumpkin Eggnog
- Your favorite flavor!
When changing the flavor of Eggnog, depending on what flavor you are wanting, you may not want to add the extra cinnamon spice!
When I cook french toast and pancakes, I love using a large griddle. It set my griddle to 350 degrees. I love the ability to cook multiple pieces at once so more people can enjoy the meal instead of waiting for one piece of french toast at a time.
If you don't have a griddle, a frying pan works great over medium heat.
I'm not a fan when French Toast gets soggy! I've found the best way to avoid soggy bread is dip each side of the french toast for 10 seconds and then immediately begin cooking on your preheated griddle. This allows you to get all the great flavor of the eggnog mixture, while skipping out on soggy bread!
Eggnog French Toast is best the day of but if you have leftovers, be sure to store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to 2-3 days.
When reheating, you can use an air fryer to crisp up the pieces. Using a microwave to reheat will result in a varying textures.
