Eggnog French Toast

It is so hard to believe that Christmas Eve is tomorrow.  Where has the time gone?  I have one more Christmas recipe for you, just in case you are looking for a quick and easy Christmas morning breakfast, or if you like to have an early breakfast after midnight mass (once my kids are old enough to go to midnight mass, I’m bringing this tradition back!)

This is a fun, festive recipe that is great if you didn’t finish all of your eggnog on Christmas Eve (just make sure it’s not spiked – ha!)  When I make French toast, I like it crispy and not mushy or soggy at all, so I always do a quick dredge through the batter (or nog in this case) instead of a soak.  If you like your French toast more squishy, you may need a bit more nog!  Also, even if you have a great non-stick skillet like mine, use the cooking spray.  Unless you enjoy sticky fried eggnog mess, that is!

Have a Blessed and Merry Christmas everyone!

Eggnog French Toast

8 slices of whole wheat bread
1 cup of Eggnog
Cooking spray

Preheat your electric skillet to medium high heat.

Place some eggnog in a wide, shallow bowl.  Spray your preheated skillet liberally with cooking spray.

Quickly dredge bread through the eggnog, shaking off any excess nog and place in the skillet.  Sprinkle each slice with a little extra nutmeg.

Fry the bread on one side until golden brown.  Lift each slice, spray the skillet, and flip the bread over.  Cook until golden brown on both sides.  Repeat with remaining bread.

Serve with maple syrup or a sprinkling of sugar.
