Eggnog French Toast

Last week I was on an Eggnog high….the scones I made were stellar, so I continued with the Eggnog and made some Eggnog French Toast. And we LOVED it…the boys both asked for seconds and Jakob asked for some later in the day (sadly it was all gone!).

Look at this….who wouldn’t want to eat it?!?

DSCF3325Ok, so it’s not easy to take a “good” picture of baked French Toast.  But it does look yummy, right?

It is easy to make, I use this recipe from Aimee, at Under the High Chair, as a basis for all the French Toasts I have been making.

This is what I did for this one:

Eggnog Baked French Toast

4 – 5 cups stale or day old French Bread (or Baguette)

4 Eggs

200 mls Eggnog

50 mls Skim Milk

1 tsp Vanilla

1 tbsp Cinnamon


Cut up French Bread and spread out in a buttered casserole dish.  Mix together all other ingredients and pour over bread.  Push the bread into the liquid to ensure even soaking up of all the eggnog goodness.

Cover the casserole dish with Saran wrap and put in fridge overnight.  In the morning pull out the dish, preheat the oven to 350F.  Bake at 350F for 35 – 45 minutes until it is brown and toasty and the eggs are set. If it starts to brown too soon cover with foil and continue until eggs are set.

Then pull out this….

Take Care,


Love Big, Bake Often

I think your pictures are great - the french toast looks scrumptious, like an eggnog bread pudding. Yum! I'd want seconds (and thirds) too.

I've never had egg nog before so I'm always wondering what it tastes like. This looks scrumptious!

I LOVE eggnog, but always end up drinking it by myself. This recipe looks amazing!!! I'm going to make it and not tell the fam about the eggnog. :) Your photos look awesome!

Oh wow yum!! We have serious egg nog lovers in this house, so I'm sure this would go over well :)

I *heart* egg nog, but try to show restraint because it's so fattening. Making it into french toast was a great idea!
