  • 3/4 cup eggnog
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 6 slices thick-cut bread or Texas Toast
  • Unsalted butter, for cooking
  • Maple syrup, for serving


  • In a 13x9-inch baking pan, whisk together the eggnog, eggs, cinnamon, sugar and vanilla extract.
  • Add the slices of bread to the pan, turning to coat, then arrange them in a single layer.
  • Cover the pan securely with plastic wrap and refrigerate it overnight.
  • When ready to serve, heat a large sauté pan over medium-low heat. Add 2 tablespoons butter to the pan, and once it has melted, add two or three slices of the French toast.
