Egg Nog French Toast

In case anyone else out there is wondering what to do with all that leftover egg nog...

Egg Nog French Toast

  • Leftover French Bread (roughly 12 slices, or as many slices as you can cram into a 9 x 13 baking pan without overlapping. They can be fresh or stale.)
  • 1 1/2 cups egg nog
  • 2 eggs, scrambled
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • a dash nutmeg
Arrange bread slices in a single layer in a greased 9 x 13 baking pan. Whisk together remaining ingredients and pour over bread slices. Turn slices to coat. Cover and refrigerate overnight. In the morning, set the pan on the counter for 30 minutes and preheat the oven to 500 degrees (yes, I said 500!). Bake uncovered for 15 minutes, turning slices once halfway through. Dust with powdered sugar and serve.

This recipe worked great for Christmas morning with little ones- it went together really quickly after they were in bed on Christmas Eve and in the morning I just pulled the pan out of the fridge and set the oven to preheat on our way down to see what Santa brought. Then I popped it in the oven when we came back up to look in the stockings. 15 minutes later it was ready to eat and I didn't have to spend any time in the kitchen! I have a hunch that adding a couple of minutes to the bake time would make it unnecessary to set the pan on the counter for 30 minutes, but I haven't tried out this theory yet...

Merry 4th day of Christmas!



  1. I posted a French toast recipe today too! I love the idea of adding egg nog...sounds delish!

  2. How much does this make it taste like egg nog? Or does it just taste sweet? I like egg nog but I like it when half of it is milk.

  3. I love French Toast! Definitely a recipe worth trying. :)

  4. I don't like egg nog but this actually sounds really good!
