Eggnog French Toast is the perfect breakfast for any holiday morning. All the great flavors of eggnog in a delicious breakfast.
Do you have a family tradition for Christmas morning? When I was growing up we ALWAYS had French Toast for breakfast. Even now, when we celebrate with my parents and my brother in January, we will have French Toast for breakfast. The same recipe every year as well. So when I had my own little family, I decided we would try something different. My son is obsessed with anything cinnamon, so we have cinnamon rolls. I wish I could say I make them from scratch each year, but I don’t. I buy the frozen ones, so I don’t have to do any work on Christmas morning. This year when we celebrate with my family, I am going to try my best to see if I can get them to try a new recipe for French Toast. This Eggnog French Toast needs to become a tradition!
I am not a fan of drinking eggnog. I tried to trick my son a couple years ago and tell him it was a cup of milk, so he would drink it. He couldn’t do it either. The only person in our family who drinks it is my mother in-law. But using eggnog in baked good or in this French Toast, now that is a must!! My son and I both love Eggnog Muffins and Eggnog Coffee Cake so much. My son said the other day that he was said eggnog was only around in the winter, because he wants to have it in desserts all year round.
