Tips for eggnog french toast recipe

  • Use thick slices of bread like french bread or challah because they absorb the eggnog mixture well without becoming “mushy.”
  • The amount of nutmeg and rum extract can be adjusted, based on your preference.
  • If you don’t have a griddle, make these in a nonstick pan on stovetop.
  • For a sweet and salty flavor combination, top it off with crispy bacon bits.
  • Other topping options: butter, maple syrup, powdered sugar, ground cinnamon or nutmeg, whipped cream, fresh berries or even Sugared Cranberries.
  • Recipe can easily be doubled to serve a bigger crowd.

I am still perfecting this version but the following worked really well, last year:

  • Use thick slices of challah bread.
  • Use 8 eggs.
  • Double the rest of the ingredients.
  • Add 1/2 cup whole or 2% milk too.

Prepare the eggnog mixture by combining together eggs, eggnog, milk, rum extract, nutmeg. Pour this over a buttered baking dish (Dimensions: 9×13), lined with slices of challah bread. Cover and refrigerate for up to 8 hours. In the morning, bake at 350 degrees for 45- 50 minutes or until golden brown. Sprinkle powdered sugar and nutmeg on top, prior to serving with maple syrup.
