Eggnog French Toast

Breakfast, Holiday, Quick and Easy, Winter

I somehow am feeling under the weather again so I’ve decided to self-diagnose myself and get in bed. Yesterday I was sulking and decided to eat a lot of cereal (with almond milk) and watch Cookie Challenge on Food Network. SO INSPIRING!! It made me want to get back in the kitchen. I love the holidays and it makes me giddy to bake holiday stuff. I could live in the world of stain-glassed cookies for ever and ever.

I’ve been thinking of breakfast items this week. And I know that eggnog will probably be in your fridge at some point.

Do you hate eggnog? I think I do.

I’m gonna get very real and tell you that I think drinking eggnog is gross. It’s way too thick and heavy for my taste but it’s 100% better when you put a few shots of bourbon in it. That thins it out and makes you warm right up!

This recipe is all about that leftover eggnog. I thought to myself, what is the flavor of eggnog? Well, it’s kinda creamy nutmeg vibes.

I used a store-bought challah loaf and sliced it up and dunked it in some eggnog and egg. It didn’t even need any sugar (I used Organic Valley Egg Nog) but this will vary from eggnog to eggnog. Give it a taste and add some sugar if you’re feeling it.

This recipe is supposed to be EASY AS CAN BE. Because we sort of need a combo of easy recipes with more ambitious ones, right?

    omg I hate eggnog too! I’m not even an egg fan in the first place, so drinking something called eggnog grosses me out so much. BUT I would get behind this breakfast situation 100%! feel better girlfriend!

    I’m going to try this with coquito. A boozy French toast! Also everyone keeps telling me to try Publix eggnog, that it’s life changing. I still don’t think I’ll try it though, I don’t care for it. I feel like I’m drinking custard. But you should try coquito, I can tolerate that. Yum!

    ‘Eggy-bread Sunday’ has become a tradition in our household, so I’m thinking this will the perfect breakfast for Christmas Eve morning! 🙂
