Eggnog French toast Recipe
The traditional Eggnog French toast is one of the most popular recipes during the festive season. The easy to make recipe, coupled with the minimum ingredients required, makes it a very frequently used meal throughout the course of the year. The only things required for the recipe are bread, eggnog, eggs and a couple of teaspoons of cinnamon for taste.
The dish can be prepared in a matter of 20 minutes which is another plus. The delicacy is hugely popular for breakfast but can also be served as a late night meal because of the minimal cooking time required. The good thing about Eggnog French Toasts is that the eggnog mixture can be refrigerated for a use later in the day or the next day also.

Soak break in the shallow dish for at least one minute. It has to be noted that soaking all the 12 breads at one time would not give the best results. It can be six at a time so that all sides of the bread is thoroughly dipped in the mixture. Turn the sides of the bread after one minute so that the other side is also dipped in the eggnog filling.

Cook the bread on the pre-heated griddle after applying some butter on it so that the toasts do not stick at the bottom. Flip the bread once the colour turns golden brown. The toasts should be cooked at medium heat so that the sides do not burn. When cooked, serve immediately as the taste is best when warm. To enhance the sweet taste of the French toasts, they can also be served with powdered sugar or syrup.
