Eggnog French Toast


I love my husband's French Toast, it is never dry and always moist and tender in the middle. I told him I wanted to try Eggnog French Toast and he made it for me this weekend. I have one word for you, YUM! It was really tasty, in fact so much, I will be requesting it again soon!

The Eggnog taste is subtle in my recipe, but if you want to omit the Cinnamon and Vanilla, it will be a very strong Eggnog taste.

Some bacon and fresh fruit along with this French Toast and you have a breakfast fit for a Queen or a King!

2 cups Lowfat Eggnog
1 tsp vanilla
4 eggs, beaten
1/8 tsp fresh grated nutmeg
1 tsp Cinnamon
I loaf of extra wide sliced bread (I used Texas Toast)
Butter

In a large bowl, mix your Eggnog, beaten eggs, vanilla and nutmeg

Place your bread into the bowl one slice at a time and let it sit there for a few seconds on each side (this helps with the tenderness factor)

Place on a buttered griddle and cook until lightly brown on both sides

Transfer to the oven to hold at 170 degrees and continue cooking French Toast until you are out of the egg mixture. This made approximately 8 slices of French Toast.

YUM is right. Everything is better with eggnog! I like that you bake your toast too. I don't like soggy toast.

Yummy! I have wanted to try eggnog french toast, but have never had eggnog-I know, what is up with that? I may just have to buy a carton and try it out!

I never thought of using eggnog! I don't like to drink eggnog, but I'd like to make an ice cream version. But, French toast? Brilliant and I agree- yum!
