I have these early early memories of getting samples of a creamy white drink while visiting friends in Connecticut each year but never knowing what it was or having it any other time. YEARS later, I tried some eggnog for what I thought was the first time, and realized it was the mystery drink from my childhood! Which means now we have eggnog stocked in our fridge from November ’till they stop selling it sometime after the holidays. Adulting at it’s finest.
So when we got back from my parents’ this week and there was eggnog at Walmart, I had to exercise a bit of self control and not buy all the different flavors.
Usually I reserve the drink for a little late night treat but thought we’d use it in a mid morning snack (what normal people would call brunch but we had all eaten when the kids first woke up at 6:30 and I don’t think you can have brunch if you’ve already had breakfast – can you?). Because eggnog is so thick I thought the flavor might be a bit overpowering in french toast but it was DELICIOUS. It definitely is not too strong to serve with your favorite syrup and plenty of whipped cream.
Go ahead, pin the recipe for Christmas morning. You’re welcome 🙂
What You’ll Need:
(makes 3 pieces of french toast)
- 1/2 Cup eggnog
- 2 eggs
- 3 pieces of bread
- 1 dash of cinnamon
- 1 dash of nutmeg (about 1/4 tsp total for cinnamon and nutmeg)
- your favorite syrup
What You’ll Do:
- Whisk together eggnog and eggs in a shallow bowl. Add in spices. Dip each side of a piece of bread in the eggnog mixture and place in hot pan.
- Cook all the way through, top with Reddi-wip and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
