Sweet and tangy meet with this eggnog french toast loaded with cranberry syrup!
I have a serious issues with foods that don’t have enough texture to them. I hate things soggy and I hate anything lukewarm or cold. I’m totally a burn-the-rough-of-your-mouth-off kinda gal. I’m passing it onto my kids quite nicely. I knooow. I think it’s mostly because they’re lacking in patience when food is placed in front of them…they are boys. But I digress.
For the longest time I couldn’t handle french toast, I mean soggy bread, who would even enjoy that? And then once I tried some version of baked french toast that a friend made when he was visiting and it turned me off for years. So much sogginess, I just could not get on board.
But then I became a big girl, and was starting to try all the things I loathed all over again. And so a couple years back, I fell in love with french toast. I began ordering it every time we went out for breakfast, in my head, it was so much better than pancakes…probably because I had deprived myself of it for so long. But even now, I love pancakes, I make them for my kids a few times a week, but french toast is number one. I’d choose it first every time.
Which bring me to this mouthwatering version of eggnog french toast, loaded with a cranberry syrup! I made these little babies the day after Thanksgiving with leftover cranberry sauce, and I should have shared them sooner so that you could do the same, but I didn’t. And it doesn’t really matter, because you can still make these without the leftovers!
They’re sooooo good. The french toast is drenched in a eggnog, nutmeg, & cinnamon mixture, then toasted to perfection and loaded with a cranberry and maple syrup sauce. The combination is mouthwatering. We almost the entire loafs worth that morning, and I’m thinking you probably will too!
