I decided to make something special for Christmas Morning breakfast this year. I had left over eggnog from the eggnog cookies I made so I thought Eggnog French Toast would be perfect this morning! I started with a recipe from www.cooks.com and added a few touches that I got from the Alton Brown french toast recipe I posted a few years ago. It came out great.
Egg Nog French Toast
Adapted from Cooks.com
1 cup commercial eggnog
6 slices cinnamon bread (Arnold)
1 tablespoon honey (warmed)
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
powdered sugar or cinnamon sugar
In a small bowl, combine egg, egg nog and honey with a fork just until egg breaks up.
Put sliced bread in a shallow flat-bottomed bowl. Pour egg mixture over bread and let sit for 2-3 minutes per side. Then place sliced bread onto a cooling rack for another 2 minutes to let excess egg mixture drip off.
In an electric skillet, melt 2 tablespoons of butter and saute each slice over medium heat (350 degrees) for 3 minutes or until golden brown.
Turn over and cook an additional 1-1/2 minutes. Serve, sprinkled with sugar and pat of butter. Or pour over a little warm maple syrup, if desired.
