Some of you may be thinking it’s a little early to be getting out the eggnog but I think November safely qualifies for serving up eggnog. This Eggnog French Toast makes for the perfect holiday breakfast, Thanksgiving or Christmas. Not only does it taste truly delicious but, just like other french toast recipes, it is unbelievably easy to make. It only requires 5 ingredients! Those are my kind of breakfasts because I’m not a morning person, so when I have guests to feed I’m all about easy breakfast recipes. I’d like to start sharing more overnight recipes, I’m sure there is someway this could be turned into an overnight eggnog french toast casserole.

Really it’s not best with pomegranate arils (kind of an odd flavor combo to do pomegranate and eggnog) I only added them to make it look more festive and fancier, sparkling cranberries would be good for decoration too.

I’m sure I will be turning to this french toast recipe many times this season. It tastes just like eggnog but in perfectly golden and buttery french toast form. Serve this up with sweetened whipped cream (a holiday must right?) and those irresistible slices of salty, crisp bacon we all crave, and you’ve got a holiday meal worth remembering.Enjoy!

Eggnog French Toast

The perfect holiday spin on classic french toast. Thick cut bread slices are drench in a simple eggnog custard then cooked on a griddle until deliciously golden brown.
Servings: 12 slices
Prep10 minutes
Cook15 minutes
Ready in: 25 minutes


  • 1 1/2 cups eggnog
  • 5 large eggs
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp rum extract
  • 12 slices Texas toast (or other white bread like challah or french bread)


  • Preheat an electric griddle to 350 degrees. In a mixing bowl whisk together eggnog, eggs, nutmeg and rum extract until very well blended. Pour mixture into a 11 by 7-inch baking dish (or other similar sized shallow baking dish) and dip bread 2 slices as a time into mixture, then rotate and coat opposite side (I also like to gently squeeze to soak to the center, then lift and gently squeeze again to remove excess). Transfer to buttered griddle and cook until bottom is golden brown then flip and cook opposite side until golden.
  • Serve warm with maple syrup and sweetened whipped cream if desired.

    Very very soggy! Did not come out good. Did not let it soak and it still was very mushy. Don’t know what was wrong.

    I make easy “flavored” French toast year round! Use liquid coffee creamers. Blend eggs and creamer and a smidge (enough of each per how much toast you are making). If you are making a lot of toast you can you half-and-half or milk to make the creamer go further.
    I used to make this for my boys when they were toddlers. We used Hawaiian rolls for the “toast”, cut into thirds horizontally (top to bottom). You could even cut them after supper the night before and leave them covered with parchment paper.
    Very easy recipe to make and clean up. And, very easy to change up the flavor any time you want to. This is my favorite way to make French Toast!

    I just found this recipe via pinterest, a year later, and I am including this in my meal prep for the week ( breakfast IS the most important meal of the day, even if it is in bed on Sunday). Burning question: where did your plates come from?

      I got them at Pier 1 two years ago but it was during the holidays so maybe they’re selling them again.

        I have these same plates from Pier 1 two years ago during Thanksgiving. I am sure I will love the french toast just as I do my plates. ????

    I made this for my family the first Sunday after I saw Eggnog in the store and my husband has requested it every Sunday since (we eat breakfast for dinner on Sunday). So tasty! He is really sad that this will be our last batch for a while since the eggnog has disappeared from the shelves. Thanks so much for the recipe.

    My man and I don’t have much but on Christmas morn I am going to prepare this scrumptious looking eggnog French toast. I am sure it’s going to be a hit. I can taste it already! Thanks so much for sharing.

    I hope you will have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
