Recipe: Overnight Eggnog French Toast
Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 45 minutes
1 loaf of French bread, preferably a day old
2 cups of eggnog
1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon of ground nutmeg
1/4 cup of granulated sugar
1/4 cup of unsalted butter, melted
Powdered sugar, for dusting
Maple syrup, for serving
Grease a 9×13-inch baking dish with butter or cooking spray.
Slice the French bread into 1-inch thick slices and arrange them in a single layer in the prepared baking dish.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, eggnog, vanilla extract, cinnamon, nutmeg, and granulated sugar until well combined.
Pour the eggnog mixture evenly over the bread slices. Use a fork or your hands to press down on the bread to ensure it absorbs the liquid.
Cover the baking dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight, or for at least 4 hours.
When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).
Remove the plastic wrap from the baking dish and drizzle the melted butter over the bread slices.
Bake for 40-45 minutes, or until the French toast is golden brown and cooked through.
Remove from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes. Dust with powdered sugar and serve with maple syrup.
