Tasty winter breakfast comfort food. Great for Thanksgiving or Christmas Breakfast. I first had Eggnog French Toast when my husband and I took a trip to Florida at Thanksgiving. We ate at a little restaurant in Reddington Beach called The Frog Pond. They had the best breakfast and they weren't stingy with the servings, everything on the menu was good and it was always way more than I could eat.

This eggnog french toast would be amazing Christmas morning. It's simple to make and tastes of the holiday. We loved the addition of rum extract. It adds great flavor without adding alcohol. Julia's eggnog mixture is perfect for coating the bread and grilling. It gets a little crisp and is super good with the maple syrup. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
