Christmas Eggnog French Toast

When I became a mommy.. It was important to me to carry on my family traditions for my children.
Eggnog was always a favorite holiday beverage of mine. My Papa always made it fresh. Rarely did we have store bought. As my kids got older, they too enjoyed this tasty treat that Great-Papa would make them when we visited for the holidays.
Christmas morning breakfast always consisted of "French toast bake." A dish you prepare the night before, then bake in the oven in the morning while the kids opened their presents.
Since eggnog was a favorite, I adapted for our new tradition!
Hope you enjoy!
