This eggnog French toast recipe is drizzled with boozy bourbon maple syrup. When the Christmas holidays roll around, breakfast calls for an extra sparkle and this one will put you in a right jolly mood!
The word for french toast in French is “pain perdu” which, translated, means lost bread.
This classic breakfast used to be a means to use up stale bread.
Waste not, want not and such. It’s one of my frugal kitchen rules, not letting stale bread go to waste.
Nevertheless, a truly exceptional french toast recipe begins with the bread.
Unless you have bread that’s past its prime, I recommend a loaf that’s either homemade or from your local bakery.
My favourite picks are a fruit and nut bread, cinnamon raisin, brioche, or a good loaf of sourdough.
