Eggnog French Toast Recipe

We love eating breakfast together as a family on the weekends and during the holiday season is no different. There is something about gathering around the breakfast table with the ones you love enjoying good food, good laughs and each other!

With Chase’s love for eggnog, this holiday season I have tried to really make him happy by incorporating our homemade non-alcoholic eggnog recipe into other tasty treats like our eggnog pancakes, eggnog waffles, eggnog cookies, and eggnog cupcakes!

You could say that doing this has made him extremely happy! It’s the little things, right?

I love how easy french toast is! It is one of those things that you can wake up and make pretty much every single day because you always have everything you need on hand.

The best eggnog french toast is pretty much the same! All it requires is eggnog (and who doesn’t have eggnog in the fridge this time of year?), eggs, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, butter, and bread.

¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg

2 to 4 tablespoons butter

12 slices texas toast or other white bread

 

How to make Eggnog French Toast:

Dip each slice of bread in the egg mixture. Be sure that you flip your bread so that you coat both sides.

Let the bread soak in the egg mixture for 15 seconds to absorb extra moisture.

Carefully lift bread up and tilt it, letting any excess egg mixture drip off the bread and place it in your pan or on the hot griddle.

 

 

Dip and cook one to six slices of bread at a time or as many as you can fit in your skillet or on your griddle.

Fry your eggnog french toast for 2 to 3 minutes, or until bread is golden brown.

Flip the eggnog french toast with a spatula and continue to cook for an additional 2 to 3 minutes until both sides are golden brown.

Serve with a pat of butter and warm syrup.

Tips and Tricks for Eggnog French Toast

  1. Leave your bread out overnight! Yes, that’s right! Stale bread makes perfect french toast. Using stale bread actually helps it soak up the egg mixture giving it way more flavor! If you decide to make french toast on Saturday morning you can still dry it out in the oven at 330 degrees for about 15 minutes. You will want to flip it once while cooking it.
  2. Cook the French Toast on medium-low heat. I know turning it up means you can eat faster, but cooking at medium-low allows the french toast to cook all the way through.

 

Should French Toast be soggy?

You definitely don’t want to eat soggy french toast. The perfect eggnog french toast with be soft (not soggy) on the inside and browned and crispy on the outside.

 

Why is my French Toast soggy?

The number one cause of soggy french toast is using too fresh of bread.

 

Should you use stale bread for Eggnog French Toast?

Yes! You should absolutely use stale bread for french toast. When you use fresh bread it just soaks everything in and quick! So you want to remove some of the moisture out of the bread so that your french toast is not soggy after you are done cooking it.

 

Keeping French Toast warm

When making eggnog french toast you want to eat it hot, so you will want to keep it warm. So before starting to dip the bread, you will want to place an oven-safe metal wire rack on a rimmed baking sheet and place it in the oven.

Preheat your oven to 250 degrees and then once your eggnog french toast is cooked, then move the finished french toast to the wire rack until you are ready to serve.

 

How do I make French Toast Sticks?

It is easy to adapt this eggnog recipe and make french toast sticks.

What you will want to do is cut the bread in sticks, I recommend about 1 ½ inch pieces.

Then you will dip these breadsticks into the egg batter. I would roll them in it to make sure you coat all four sides.

After this, you will put on the griddle and cook. They won’t cook for as long and you will want to make sure to cook all four sides until brown.

My kids love french toast sticks because they are dippable.

If your kids beg for french toast sticks after you have already begun dipping the bread, you can always cut the french toast into strips after it is cooked. This will cause two sides to not be brown, but could save you from kid meltdowns if they really want french toast sticks!

Either way, your kids will love dipping their french toast sticks.

 

What can I put on Eggnog Frech Toast?

My favorite thing to put on eggnog french toast is butter and warm syrup!

Other favorites are:

  • Berries
  • Powdered sugar
  • Honey
  • Jam, strawberry freezer jam anyone?

 

What to serve with Frech Toast?

If you are looking for something to go with your french toast there are some great options!

You can eat

  • Bacon
  • Sausage
  • Eggs
  • Breakfast potatoes
