Festive holiday dessert.

Top Review by AaronDMinnick

This recipe is easy and a great success when cooking for company! We halved the sugar, and substituted 1/2 cup of Evan Williams Original Southern Egg Nog (made with bourbon, rum, and brandy) for 1/2 cup of regular eggnog (omit the brandy and rum from the recipe). We also used low-fat eggnog. This is our favorite holiday dessert!

  2. Put bread pieces in a bowl, pour eggnog over the bread and allow to soak for about 1 hour, or until all the liquid is absorbed.

  4. In a bowl, whisk the eggs, yolks, sugar, brandy, and rum until thick and smooth.
  5. Stir in the bread mixture and pour into prepared pan.
