Jill – Eggnog French Toast

8 thick slices bread, we like Sara Lee artesana or brioche

4 large eggs, room temperature

2/3 cup eggnog, store-bought or homemade

1 tablespoon light brown sugar

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/4 cup all-purpose flour

Preheat the griddle to 350 degrees F or heat a skillet over medium heat.

Add all ingredients, except the bread, to a blender or to a shallow dish and whisk well to combine. If whisking by hand, it’s okay if the flour doesn’t mix in completely smooth.

Grease the skillet with butter or non-stick spray.

Dip the bread in the batter and turn to generously coat both sides. Place on the hot skillet and cook for a few minutes, until the bottom of the bread starts to get golden brown. Flip and cook on the other side the same.

Serve with cinnamon syrup or regular syrup and dust with extra cinnamon.
