Quick and easy to make, Eggnog French Toast is the perfect Christmas time breakfast and a great way to use up any leftover eggnog. Serve with fresh berries and dollops of Greek yoghurt.


  • 2 cups (500ml) eggnog
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp (3g) ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp (3g) ground nutmeg
  • 1 loaf bloomer bread
  • 2 tbsp (40g) butter


  1. Place the eggnog, eggs, cinnamon and nutmeg into a large bowl and then whisk together
  2. Slice the bread into 1-1½ inch thick slices.
  3. Heat a frying pan on a medium heat and melt a knob of butter in the pan.
  4. Dip the bread into the eggnog mixture and leave for around 5 seconds and then turn and do the same.
  5. Move the bread to the frying pan and cook for around 3-5 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
  6. Serve with toppings of your choice, we chose icing sugar, fruit, maple syrup, Greek yogurt and berries. Enjoy!


  • We used Bloomer bread but feel free to swap with a bread of your choice. I decided on the Bloomer as it is a little denser and holds together better when moist.
  • You can adjust the quantities of nutmeg and cinnamon to your liking.
