Tasty! Loved the hint or orange. I used commercial eggnog which probably has minimal amounts of egg added, which made for soggy french toast. This recipe would be very different with a homemade thick eggnog. Next time I'd add 3 eggs to the mix so it would be a bit firmer. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pour eggnog into a shallow bowl, and add grated orange and cinnamon.
  2. Dip bread slices into the eggnog mixture, turning to coat both sides.
  3. Melt 2 tablespoons of the butter in a skillet over medium-high heat; add 2 or 3 slices of bread and fry until golden brown on both sides.
  4. Repeat with remaining bread and butter.
  5. Serve warm with powdered sugar, maple syrup, compote, or all three!
