This Eggnog French Toast with Gingerbread Syrup is my new favorite Christmas breakfast. Get a taste of Christmas in every gooey, delicious bite!
Eggnog French Toast
I love the taste of eggnog but I sometimes have a hard time drinking it because it is so thick! But once I tried it as the coating for this amazing French toast, I realized the thickness was a great thing! With this unbelievably good Eggnog French Toast the bread absorbs all the yummy eggnog flavor, but you don’t have to drink it.
Gingerbread Syrup for the Win!
If you want to enhance the festive flavor of this dish even more, you’ve simply got to top it with our gingerbread syrup. I’m not kidding, it really tastes like gingerbread And who doesn’t love gingerbread flavors around the holidays? 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.
