    I was looking for an easy crowd French toast recipe and this was my saving grace. It's delicious and easy to prepare.

    This has become a staple for our family around the holidays. We use the full fat nog and add a little extra nutmeg/spices. Smells heavenly!

    Added a little fresh squeezed orange juice, grated nutmeg and cinnamon. Halved the recipe and used my own two day old bread. Perfect way to use up the holiday eggnog since it is 190 calories per 1/2 cup - we use sparingly??

    This is an excellent Christmas French toast recipe. I was a little hesitant trying It because of the English Muffins. But it was really good and simple to put together in the morning.

    Delicious! I used french bread instead and opted for the rum extract. I really think the rum extract made it even more amazing. I cut the egg mixture into 1/4 and was about to make about 6 slices of the french bread, perfect for my husband and I. I also used light egg nog. I can't wait to make this again!!!

    Sinful! Don't forget the nutmeg! And use real maple syrup!
