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.
