Need an easy breakfast when the kids are being crazy?
Eggnog french toast it is.
Seriously, you get the idea.
I made a batch this morning which was devoured by my husband, two year old, and myself.
My two year old couldn’t stop talking about it after, he was hooked!
This recipe can be made dairy free by using soy eggnog, and vegan butter (earth balance is my favorite).
If you don’t need to worry about dairy, this recipe will work the same with regular eggnog and butter.
How to make eggnog french toast
Add the eggs, eggnog, vanilla extract, and cinnamon to a shallow dish and whisk to combine.
Heat a griddle or large skillet with vegan butter.
Dunk slices of bread in the batter, drip off excess, and place in the skillet or on the griddle.
Cook on both sides until golden brown.
Serve with additional butter and pure maple syrup!
I used a skillet since I don’t have a griddle, and the bread cooked around 3 – 5 minutes per side.
That time is going to depend on your skillet and stove, so just watch closely not to burn.
I personally like them with nice browned edges so I cook it a little longer to get the desired crispiness.
It was the best french toast I’ve tasted in my life.
I first made this recipe four years ago and am updating it today.
The only reason I waited so long to share it again was that it is so hard to photograph french toast!
These pictures might not be the prettiest, but trust me when I say this eggnog french toast is amazing!
I promise your family will love this easy and delicious recipe.
This french toast would be the perfect Christmas morning breakfast!
I could see myself making it every week of December to be honest.
It’s really that good!
I’ll definitely be including this in my favorite holiday recipes!
