Eggnog French Toast – a festive breakfast dish that’s absolutely perfect for the holiday season! This crowd-pleasing recipe is easy to prepare, and made with eggnog and simple pantry ingredients!
It’s hard to believe we are almost at the end of another year. It’s also hard to believe it’s been a year since I last posted a recipe on this little blog of mine. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know I’ve had other recipes exclusively posted there at least. For some reason, I just haven’t put them over here yet. I think it’s just that after sitting on a laptop all day for work, I don’t exactly feel like being on my laptop in the evening as well. That definitely needs to change though, and I hope to continue with more frequent posts on the blog as I just have SO MANY RECIPES that I want to create and share!
Eggnog is pretty much a staple in our house as soon as I can find it in the store and then throughout the holiday season. I enjoy it on its own, but also love adding it to my coffee, and I love using it to elevate my French toast too! This easy recipe includes both eggnog and classic holiday spices. The result as a fluffy, perfectly spiced French toast that is wonderful for Christmas morning (or any other holiday you may celebrate this time of year).
How to make Eggnog French Toast
Making this Eggnog French Toast is super easy!
You begin by whisking together the eggs, eggnog, melted butter, rum extract, and spices. Next, you’ll want to hear an electric griddle to 350F or a large skillet over medium heat. Grease the skillet with cooking spray or oil and then submerge the bread into the batter, flipping to coat both sides. Shake off any excess batter and then place on the heated griddle/skillet. Fry it for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until golden. Repeat with all bread slices. Once done, serve warm with maple syrup, whipped cream and a sprinkle of nutmeg and enjoy your delicious holiday breakfast!

Eggnog French Toast
- 4 large eggs
- 1 cup eggnog
- 1 tbsp melted butter
- 1 tsp vanilla extract

- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 10-12 slices bread
- In a large shallow-bottomed bowl, whisk together the eggs. Then, whisk in the eggnog, melted butter, vanilla extract, rum extract, nutmeg and cinnamon. (It's okay if the butter clumps up a little bit).
- Heat an electric griddle to 350°, or heat a large frying pan to medium heat. Drizzle with oil or spray with non-stick cooking spray.
- Submerge a piece of bread in the batter, then flip and submerge the other side. Shake off any excess batter and place on the heated griddle or frying pan. Cook on one side until golden, about 2-3 minutes. Flip to the other side and continue to cook until that side is golden as well, another 2-3 minutes. Repeat this process with all of the bread slices.
- Serve the eggnong french toast warm with maple syrup, whipped cream, and a sprinkle of nutmeg.
