Egg Nog French Toast

Are you an Egg Nog lover? I am the only one in my family that looks forward to this delicious beverage hitting the stores during the holidays. Because it is so rich, I can usually only drink a little of it. Then, I have at least half a carton left. My solution to the leftover egg nog is making Egg Nog French Toast.

When you think about it, the egg nog ingredients are about the same ones that you put in French Toast, so why not use up the leftovers and inject your breakfast with a little holiday flair.

What's great is that even if your family isn't fond of egg nog as a drink, they won't know you used it in their favorite French Toast. You can just say you experimented with some of the spices. {That's what I did. What they don't know won't hurt them.}

2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 1/2 cups egg nog
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1 loaf French Bread, sliced (I buy the one in our grocer's bakery pre-sliced.)

Preheat griddle to about 300 degrees and lightly grease. In shallow dish, beat eggs, egg nog, cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice together. One by one, dip the slices of bread into the egg mixture, making sure to coat both sides. Place the prepared slices onto the griddle and cook until golden brown on both sides, turning once. Place cooked slices on serving plate and cover with foil to keep warm until all the slices are cooked. Serve with syrup and/or powdered sugar.
*This could also be done as an overnight baked dish. Simply place bread slices in lightly greased 9x13 inch pan. Pour the egg mixture over, cover and refrigerate overnight. In the morning, remove the pan from the refrigerator, allowing it to come to room temperature. Bake for about 40 minutes in 350 degree oven.

I hope you have had a great weekend so far. I'm off to finish wrapping gifts to put under the tree. Have you finished all your Christmas preparations?
