Mmmm, French toast and egg nog: two great tastes that taste great together. Baking is easier than frying and you use less fat, which helps make up for the fat that there is egg nog in the mix. Really great. Easy. It was a perfect Christmas breakfast. Used a jelly roll pan and the loaf soaked up all the sauce overnight.
This is a very delicious dish. I made a similar dish like this- it was very good. Try this-instead of syrup, make hot cranberry sauce.
This was a fantastic treat. I have actually made it twice. The first time I used Texas toast, I myself didn't care for it, everyone else loved it. The second time I used French Bread and it was SUPERB!! Will make often in the future.
