I've been seeing a lot of recipes for egg nog French toast this winter, so I finally decided I needed to try it. It's a wonder that such an easy recipe didn't pop into my head earlier since I LOVE egg nog. I get so excited when I start seeing it in the grocery store every November, and always have some in my fridge until I can no longer purchase it.
Heath can't stand the stuff, but Jesse just destroys it! I'll give him a glass and he downs the whole thing in one big gulp. While we're not usually big on French toast in this house (we like it, but I rarely ever make it), this was really good. Since the recipe I used didn't exactly have conventional measurements (a splash of egg nog, a knob of butter), I put a LOT of egg nog into my egg mixture...I'd say close to a cup, and the taste definitely came through in the bread . Jesse ate all of his and half of mine!
I'm glad I tried this, and I can't belive how easy it is! Every now and again I'll have a carton of egg nog that's either very close to or at it's sell-by date. Instead of throwing it out, I'll just use it to make this for breakfast! It's absolutely a recipe that put to good use all throughout egg nog season!

Pinch of salt
1 tablespoon of butter, for frying

2. Melt the butter in a pan over medium heat.
3. Dip the bread in the egg mixture, let it soak a few seconds, turning once. Place each slice into the pan and cook till golden brown on each side (about 3-4 minutes on each side)
4. Enjoy with maple syrup or your favourite topping.
