Egg Nog French Toast


1 loaf of bread (I used wheat)
5 large eggs
1/2 cup milk
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract, divided
1 1/2 tsp rum extract, divided
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 cup maple syrup


Pre-heat a griddle to 350 degrees (or over medium heat, if on the stove top).

In a wide bowl beat together the eggs, milk and salt until completely blended. Beat in 1 tsp vanilla extract, 1 tsp rum extract and 1 tsp nutmeg.
Once griddle is warm, dip bread into egg mixture, turning and coating completely. Place on griddle and repeat for remaining slices of bread. Cook until golden brown (4-5 minutes) then flip and finish cooking. Remove from griddle. Repeat as many times as necessary to finish cooking the loaf of bread (depends on your griddle size).

While the french toast is cooking, place syrup in a small saucepan. Stir in 1/2 tsp nutmeg. Heat over medium-low heat for 5 minutes. Remove from heat, stir in 1/2 tsp vanilla extract and 1/2 tsp rum extract. Serve over french toast

Serves 8 (about 16 slices total, 2 slices each)

We make this whole batch because there is nothing my husband loves more than breakfast food that he can snack on at all hours of the day.
