Christmas Eggnog French Toast Recipe @pinch

We love traditions, especially if this French toast recipe is part of it. This is divine! The brown sugar mixture on the bottom gives the bread a buttery, caramel flavor. Mixed with the eggnog soaked into bread makes for a special treat. It's a super easy breakfast for Christmas morning since the work is done the day before. This is so good, it may become a Christmas tradition for your family, too. When I became a mommy, it was important to me to carry on my family traditions for my children. Eggnog was always a favorite holiday beverage of mine. My papa always made it fresh. Rarely did we have store-bought. As my kids got older, they too enjoyed this tasty treat that great-papa would make them when we visited for the holidays. Christmas morning breakfast always consisted of "French toast bake." A dish you prepare the night before, then bake in the oven in the morning while the kids opened their presents. Since eggnog was a favorite, I adapted for our new tradition. Hope you enjoy!
