Considering eggnog is a permanent staple in our home during the holidays, you can bet we kick up our french toast, every time to make Eggnog French Toast. I’ve adapted my classic French Toast recipe to include eggnog and holiday spices and the result is a perfectly spiced and flavorful eggnog French Toast that’s easy to make any time this season.

The ingredients needed to make Eggnog French Toast, inlcuding eggs, eggnog, bread, brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, vanilla and nutmug

How to make Eggnog French Toast:

  • Preheat griddle to 350 degrees F or or heat a skillet over medium heat.
  • Add all ingredients, except the bread, to a blender or to a shallow dish and whisk well to combine. If whisking by hand, it’s okay if the flour doesn’t mix in completely smooth.

Batter for Eggnog French Toast mixed in a blender.

  1. I’m not a huge eggnog fan, but this french toast looks amazing – I’ll have to give it a try!

  2. I love egg nog so much so this french toast sounds wonderful! I can’t wait to give it a try!

    1. The nutrition info was calculated by “pieces” instead of “slices” of bread, this is where it made a mistake. I have updated it. Thanks so much for pointing this out!

    This is so delicious, I’ve been making it for years and everyone loves it! I use Pepperidge Farm bread for French toast because it has cinnamon and maple flavoring already in the bread so I cut back on adding it to the mix. I wish egg nog was sold year-round!

  4. 5 stars
    This is the best. I’ve tried various recipes over the past few Christmases for breakfast and this is the best one. I can taste the eggnog. The spices and amount bring out the flavor. I will be making this from now on for our Christmas breakfast.
    Thank you!
