You know, if you actually have any leftover. Egg nog is not a treat that lasts more than a few days in our house because it’s a such a favorite of all three members of our little family. Jack refers to it as “Christmas milk”.
Christmas milk French toast is an awesome make ahead dish that is perfect for breakfast, or dinner. And since you can prep it up to 12 hours before serving, it’s a perfect part of a weeknight “breakfast” dinner.
Christmas Milk French Toast
6-12 slices of bread (homemade is awesome in this)
1 cup of egg nog
1 tblsp of cinnamon (we love cinnamon, so cut it back if you’re not cinnamon freaks like us)
Splash of homemade vanilla if desired
You’ll notice I didn’t add any sugar to the recipe. Egg nog is sweet enough – there is no need to increase the sweetness for this recipe.
Lay one layer of sliced bread on the bottom of a baking pan.
In a medium sized mixing bowl, crack and beat the 6 eggs. Add the egg nog and the vanilla and pour over the bread.
Using a fork, push the eggy mixture in to the bread.

Let it soak in the fridge overnight (or throughout the day if you’re making it in the morning for dinner), and then bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes, or until browned and crispy.
Serve with maple syrup or your topping of choice. And a smile. Cause it’s freaking good.
