At first I was thinking I don’t really have any holiday recipes. I don’t do a lot of special baking, and our main holiday meal is a pretty standard turkey, stuffing and potatoes kind of thing – nothing too fancy. But the one thing that my kids and I do is go all-out on breakfast, whether it’s a holiday or not. Every year, while it’s available, eggnog definitely makes its way into the things I’m making, including this eggnog French toast.

Eggnog French Toast


  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 cups eggnog
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 6 to 8 slices bread (brioche, French loaf or challa bread is best), sliced ½-inch thick or so
  • Butter for cooking
  • Confectioner’s sugar for sprinkling when done


Step 1

Preheat a griddle or a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat.

Step 2

In a large bowl or dish, whisk together all the ingredients, making sure you mix well.

Step 3

Melt a little butter onto the griddle and spread it around (you can also use non-stick cooking spray if you want).

Step 4

Dip the bread into the mixture for a few seconds on each side making sure both sides are evenly coated.

Step 5

Add them to the hot buttered griddle, cook for about 4 to 5 minutes on each side depending on the thickness of your bread. (You will most likely have to cook these in batches so make sure you add a tad more butter when you add your second batch.)

Step 6

Sprinkle with a tiny bit of confectioner’s sugar and enjoy as-is or with some maple syrup!
