Spiked Egg Nog French Toast
Tuesday morning I went all-out French.
French Dark Roast.
French toast.... a la spiked egg nog.
That's right, Spiked Egg Nog French Toast. I became determined to try out an older recipe on Pinch My Salt after browsing blogs during Monday evening. I must admit, the thought of egg nog in combination with French Toast most definitely helped me get out of bed.
I probably like rum just as much as all the other university students. However, I'm now running on a five year rule of no alcohol during days that involve studying, writing, or some kind of academic style work. Which means during the semester I nevvvver drink. I carried this rule on into my French Toast.
So, without further ado, here is the recipe adapted to be sans alcohol and to serve (sadly?) one person:
1/3 cup store bought egg nog
1/4 tsp vanilla
1/8 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp nutmeg
2 slices of bread
Whisk together eggs, egg nog, vanilla, spices.
Heat the pan.
Dip bread into the egg mixture, allowing to soak slightly.
Butter the hot pan and place bread on it.
Cook until golden brown.
* If you need to serve more people or realllly want that rum, head on over to Pinch My Salt.
All I can say is Yummmmmm. This was amazing. It tasted like Christmas. Heck, it even smelt like Christmas. I'll most definitely be making these again in December... and perhaps January if I can still find Egg Nog.
Make some of these delicious morsels to welcome in Winter and the holidays this year... and check back here often - I have a feeling Sweet Sunday's are soon to become dominated by festive Christmas goodies!
Hope you all have a Sweet Sunday.
PS - what is your favourite French Toast style?
