One of our favorite drinks to enjoy during the holiday season is eggnog, and when it starts popping up in the grocery stores, the kids get super excited. So I thought I'd give the kiddos a treat for breakfast today, and I made some Eggnog French Toast with Cinnamon Whipped Cream. If you're looking for a special breakfast for the holidays, this is it!
We typically have a big breakfast on either Saturday or Sunday, since there's absolutely no time for this during the week. Lately, even the weekends have been rushed, so this was kind of like a nice surprise for the kiddos, especially when they found out that eggnog was involved!
Whenever I make French toast, I like to use crusty French bread, which if you think about it, makes perfect sense, I guess. But really, this is just a personal preference, so use whatever type of bread you like best.
I usually cut the bread and leave it out for a few minutes so that it gets a little dry before I dunk it into the egg mixture. I have this thing about soggy French toast -- I just can't can't stand it -- so, this way, it helps the the bread stay nice and crispy.
I also use an entire loaf of bread, so this recipe makes a lot, and then I just keep the toast warm in the oven until I'm done with the whole batch. But if you don't need that much, just reduce the amounts.
