Eggnog French Toast Without a Mixing Bowl

For breakfast, I whipped up a quick brunch on Christmas Eve. Steel Cut Oatmeal was soaked overnight, (here’s how) so that all I had to do was heat it up in the morning. But, the topper was this eggnog french toast — incredibly easy and so, very good. All you do is pour the eggnog over your day-old bread, and then bake it. No egg cracking or mixing! I did let the eggnog soak into the bread overnight — but  you could pour the eggnog over the bread in the morning, and be just fine.

Here’s how:

  • 6-8 slices day old bread
  • 2 c. dairy eggnog
  • 1/4 c. butter
  • Maple Syrup, Cinnamon and Nutmeg for sprinkling on top.


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
  2. Place bread in single layer in buttered shallow dish.
  3. Pour eggnog over bread.Let stand, turning bread once, until eggnog is absorbed, about 5 minutes. (Or put in fridge and let it soak in overnight. But don’t pre-heat the oven until the morning.)
  4. Bake 8 to 10 minutes.
  5. Melt butter in microwave.
  6. Flip bread over, and pour melted butter on top.
  7. Bake 5-8 minutes on other side, or until golden.

Serve with Maple syrup, Cinnamon and Nutmeg.
