Eggnog French Toast

While shopping at Costco a little while ago my little shopping companion was given a sample of Eggnog french toast. He loved it and begged me to make some for everyone in the family to enjoy. This past weekend I decided to make it for that day’s special activity – a fun Christmas-y breakfast without all the extra sugar that the store bought version has.


This is a simple and yummy recipe I whipped together {and remembered to write down the steps!} The spices can be adjusted to taste. And while I didn’t do this, I think powdered sugar would make a pretty addition to the top either alongside or in place of the maple syrup.

I used gluten free bread for our family, but that certainly isn’t necessary.

  1. Wait a minute… there isn’t even any eggnog in this!!! I add cinnamon and vanilla to my french toast every time I make it! :P

    I made french toast for dinner tonight for me and the kids, we used an entire loaf of bread and 7 eggs, I guess this isn’t an easy cheap meal anymore….

    • Eggnog is just eggs, milk (or cream), nutmeg and sugar – sometimes cloves, cinnamon and vanilla. This is totally eggnog – I just didn’t put sugar in it since I was putting it on top.
      I suppose you could use store bought eggnog in place of milk!

What do you think?
