Breakfast for Dinner: Eggnog French Toast
Tonight I spied the unused carton of eggnog left over from the holidays — taunting me from the back of my fridge, daring me to use its rich, spicy contents before the expiration date this week.
Hence, breakfast for dinner, and eggnog-drenched French toast. It’s easy to make, and this French toast is a great way to use up the last of the eggnog carton!
Eggnog French Toast
Makes 6 slices.
2 beaten eggs
1 heaping cup of eggnog
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
generous sprinkling of ground nutmeg
4 tablespoons of white sugar, or to taste
6 slices of bread
To serve: extra ground cinnamon, butter, and syrup
Combine the beaten eggs, eggnog, cinnamon, nutmeg, and sugar in a large bowl. Mix thoroughly so that the sugar dissolves.
Dunk the slices of bread into the egg mixture one at a time. Coat the slices in the egg mixture and turn them with a fork twice to evenly cover both sides. Each slice can sit in the egg mixture for a few minutes to absorb the eggnog flavor.
Coat a nonstick skillet with cooking spray and warm the pan on medium-high heat. Once the pan is hot, transfer the soaked slices of bread to the pan using the fork.
Fry the French toast slices 7 minutes on each side or until lightly browned. Make sure the middle of each slice is cooked before removing it from the pan.
Serve with an extra sprinkling of ground cinnamon, butter, and the syrup of your choice.
