Eggnog French Toast

I made eggnog french toast not too long ago and it was definitely a hit at my house. I saw it on Pinterest from this blog, it looked so good I just had to try it. I am the only person who like eggnog and 3/5 of us like french toast. So I decided that since I was the only one who liked both I would make it and if nobody else liked it I would just freeze it and have more for me. This french toast recipe was sooo good, not only did I think it was good but one of my boys who doesn't like french toast or eggnog ate 2 pieces!!! My youngest didn't eat any of it but that's pretty normal for her. I didn't have any leftovers. I was still thinking of the french toast the week before Christmas. Since I plan out my meals and make my list Thursday or Friday before the week I need it I decided that eggnog french toast NEEDED to be included in Christmas morning. So that's what we had, eggnog french toast, I made more this time,and Johnsonsville breakfast sausage, and this time I had leftovers to freeze. I didn't get to take any pictures of though, I ran out of camera battery. Here's the recipe, i hope you enjoy it as much as I have!!

Eggnog French Toast

1 loaf of sourdough bread, sliced as thick or thin as you want (The first time I used 1/2 loaf of pre-sliced french bread)
1 1/2 cups eggnog
6 eggs
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg (can leave it out if you don't have it)
1 tsp vanilla
cooking spray for pan

Mix up all ingredients in a bowl except for bread and cooking spray. Heat a pan over medium heat. Spray with cooking spray. Dip a slice of bread into the mix, turn to get both sides coated in egg mixture. Pan fry until golden, about 2 min the flip over for another couple of minutes. Repeat with remaining bread.

I just top mine with maple syrup, but top the french toast with whatever you choose!
