I wasn’t a fan of eggnog until I met Chris. I mean I avoided it like fruitcake. Then our first Christmas together, Chris came home with a carton and added some rum to it and I was hooked. Thinking back, maybe it was the rum and not the eggnog that I liked. Anyways, we’ll never know because I happen to enjoy it now. I even make my own stuff, which I’ll be posting about in December. Since that day, I’ve been finding ways to include eggnog in some everyday recipes. I mean, the holidays are coming so why not, right?
I actually found Light Eggnog so I didn’t feel as guilty about enjoying such a rich breakfast. #noshameholidays Yup I just started that hashtag, you’re welcome. This is such a great dish for Christmas morning because it doesn’t take long to whip up and serve because we all know our kids and spouses will be anxious to either open all their gifts or anxious to play with all their toys, whichever comes first.
To get started you’re going to need thick slices of bread, brown sugar, eggnog, cinnamon, nutmeg, and eggs. Oh and a pan or griddle and whatever you when to serve your french toast with, whipped cream, syrup, nuts, etc.
Heat your non-stick pan over medium heat. This will vary depending on your stovetop. I have a gas stove so I cook my french toast over medium-low heat. Whisk together the eggnog, sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon, and egg. Dip both sides of your slices of bread in the eggnog mixture and then transfer to your pan. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until it turns golden brown. You can use the photos above as a guide. When golden brown, remove from heat and plate it. Serve with anything your heart desires, heck as I’m typing this I’m thinking that the next time I make this I’m serving it with whipped cream and crushed candy canes.
Honestly, it’s so good, your family is going to love it. Serve it with some hot chocolate or a cup of coffee.
