Eggnog French Toast:

Gingerbread Syrup:



Eggnog French Toast:

  • Cut bread into thick slices (about 3 inches wide) and arrange in a lightly sprayed 9x13 inch pan.

  • In a large bowl beat together Meadow Gold 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).
