Eggnog French Toast with Eggnog Syrup

by Laura

The other day I discovered a recipe for eggnog french toast.  I immediately decided that I was making it that night for dinner.  Then I decided to take the whole eggnog thing a bit further and try to create an eggnog syrup.  I figured it was worth a try. These turned out fabulous!

I must admit, I was the only one in the family willing to give the syrup a try.  I think it was yummy. This syrup would work great on regular french toast too.  It just gives you a little taste of a classic holiday flavor.  I didn’t even try the french toast with maple syrup because I loved the eggnog syrup that much.  I kept telling my family that they were missing out.  No one believed me.  Hopefully some of you will believe me.

The french toast itself was also tasty.  I figured it’s not too far fetched to make french toast with eggnog.  I mean we’re talking milk and eggs people.  Why wouldn’t it work?

I must say that I am very picky about not having the inside of my french toast mushy.  So I am always very careful to not over dip my bread.  I had to be very careful with the dipping.  There was a piece I had that was leaning a little on the mush side, but not mushy enough I couldn’t eat it.

I did however use fresh Texas toast from the store.  So if you don’t like your french toast mushy on the inside be careful with the dipping or use some good dry bread.  Nobody had any problems eating the french toast here, even with it containing eggnog, but they so missed out on the syrup.

OMG! Yumm-o! I have had eggnog french toast before so this recipe wasnt anything different. What was different was the syrup!! I love eggnog and anything eggnog flavored but even I thought that this may contain too much eggnog. Boy was I wrong! Since the french toast only has a slight eggnog flavor, the syrup was a welcomed addition. I will never have french toast without it again. I love it! Two thumbs up!

this recipe was so yummy, especially the syrup! i was afraid doing the eggnog french toast with the eggnog syrup was going to be eggnog overload, but it wasn’t. the french toast just had a slight eggnog taste to it, and the syrup was heavenly! ( i did use light eggnog) thanks for the recipe, it was delicious!

That looks delicious! I just bought some Eggnog from Trader Joes, but have yet to open it. I think this recipe could be a worthy occasion.
