This Eggnog French Toast with Gingerbread Syrup is my new favorite Christmas breakfast. Get a taste of Christmas in every gooey, delicious bite!
I love the taste of eggnog but I sometimes have a hard time drinking it because it is so thick! I love that this french toast absorbs all the yummy flavor but you don’t have to drink it. 🙂
The gingerbread syrup really tastes like gingerbread too! It is so so good!! I am going to make a huge batch of it and take it around to my neighbors. In fact, I made some cute little tags to go with it that I will add to the bottom of this post in case anyone else wants to do the same.
Egg Nog French Toast with Gingerbread Syrup
- whipped topping optional
Cut bread into thick slices (about 3 inches wide) and arrange in a lightly sprayed 9x13 inch pan.
In a large bowl beat together eggnog, eggs, sugar, spices, and vanilla.
Pour mixture over bread slices, I like to turn them a few times to ensure good coating. Optional: Sprinkle the tops with a little cinnamon and sugar.
Cover and refrigerate overnight (or for at least 3 hours).
In the morning bake for 45 minutes at 350 or until golden brown. Serve with gingerbread syrup and whipped topping (optional).
Combine all the ingredients for the syrup in a small saucepan over medium high heat. Bring to a low boil, then remove from heat. Serve over french toast.
