Cooking up Memories- EggNog French Toast #Recipe #Christmas #FamilyFirst


Happy Holidays!

Growing up, Christmas for our family often meant trips to Wilmore Park for a day of tobogganing with our cousins, hot cocoa and shortbread cookies with our grandparents, and… Christmas morning gift opening!

Years later, after my dad passed away, DH (darling hubby) and I slowly took over the Christmas Day festivities. One of the things my brothers and daughter looked forward to was a big holiday breakfast.

I was lucky enough to have the use of an industrial kitchen (my restaurant) and would prepare platters of bacon, sausage, and ham the day before. Then, Christmas morning, while the meat was warming in the oven, I cooked up pancakes, eggs, toast, vats of coffee 🙂 and waited for the hordes to arrive.

One of the family favorites was Eggnog French Toast. It’s easy and delicious!

Eggnog French Toast

Ingredients

1 dozen lrg. eggs

1 litre eggnog

2 loaves of bread (French loaf works well)

1 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp nutmeg

1 tsp vanilla

Heat skillet med/hot with a dash of olive oil.

Mix eggs, eggnog, cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla together in a large bowl until smooth. Dunk bread in mixture to evenly coat, then add to hot pan. Flip after a couple of minutes and remove when golden brown. Repeat process until you have enough for your family.

Hint

I average approx 1 egg for 2 slices of bread and cook 4 slices for the men. You can easily suit this to your needs.

Enjoy!

  1. Jacquie each Sunday when I come to your blog I drool on my computer LOL We also do French toasts here but instead of eggnog use the classic milk with the eggs. Plus vanilla but sans cinnamon or nutmeg. Yours seem delicious! I did not know you own a restaurant!

  2. Oh my, Jacquie, that looks SO GOOD. My DH and I don’t do carbs and sweets, but that is so tempting! Have a wonderful Christmas and I’ll be thinking of you, your family, and your French Toast. Ha ha. Seriously, much joy and happiness to you and yours this holiday and throughout the year to come. 🙂
