This is one of those recipes that I have been making for years around Christmas and my family loves (especially my husband!) so I am so glad I am finally sharing it with all of you!
The fluffy texture of brioche (or challah bread, I am using here) makes for the lightest, pillowy soft french toast, and the flavors of eggnog – with its sweet cinnamon and nutmeg flavors – go so perfectly together.
This breakfast is so easy but is so special, perfect for quick holiday brunches while you are busy doing a million other things. And it totally feeds a crowd – I am full after one piece.
The little dusting of powdered sugar is my kids’ favorite and just adds to the Christmas brunch allure.
To make it, you just combine all the ingredients in a bowl and then dunk each piece of brioche into it.
I love to use our indoor grill pan which is a skillet on one side, and it cooks 6-8 pieces at a time.
This dish is such a treat and will fill everyone with the flavors of the season. You are going to want to grab some extra eggnog this year and keep some brioche in the freezer for the slow mornings of Christmas week.
Happy Eating! xoxo Katie
