The best way to use that leftover eggnog in your refrigerator is to transform it into this delicious Eggnog French Toast breakfast!
I love eggnog. That first glass of eggnog each season symbolizes the start of my holiday calorie indulging spree. You just can’t beat a delicious eggnog. But we all know that it is an incredibly rich drink and we often times can’t finish off what we have in our frig. I’ve taken a real liking to cooking with eggnog. Its incredible how much the flavor really shines through. I’ve made everything from eggnog donuts to cupcakes to pound cake. This french toast is nothing short of delicious. It taste much like your standard french toast, but instead of the milk or half and half or cream or whatever you use for your liquid, just use up that leftover eggnog. Brilliant, right! I ended up using french bread that was slightly stale and would have otherwise been thrown away. I just gave each piece a nice long bath in the mixture and cooked it to perfection on the griddle for a perfect holiday season breakfast!
This recipe uses pure vanilla extract. Did you know you can make your own homemade vanilla extract? It makes the perfect gift too. Watch how in the video below.
