And that’s because they’re really inspiring, aren’t they? If I do say so myself. Also I have a lot to do today! I have to go get cookies from the local cafe and I need to finish the advent calendars. Yes, they’re already filled, but I like to keep adding things until the deadline! And I need that 24th calendar day slot to be pretty amazing. Also, I have a sponsored post for later today (it’s fun STEM-based!). And of course, we have Finish the Sentence Friday “due” tonight at midnight and I haven’t.. you know.. started it. What kind of angels and demons will come out in that one, huh?
Eggnog French Toast:
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 10 minutes
Yield: 12 slices
What You Need:
1 1/2 cups eggnog
4 large eggs
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 to 4 tablespoons butter
12 slices Texas Toast or other white bread
What You Do:
1 – In a mixing bowl whisk together eggnog, eggs, cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla, and whisk until well blended.
2 – Heat 1-2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet or griddle on medium heat until melted.
3 – And then dip each slice of bread in egg mixture, turning to cover both sides.
4 – Then, let bread soak in egg mixture for 15 seconds to absorb extra moisture.
5 – Carefully lift bread up and tilt, letting any excess egg mixture to drip off the bread and place on hot griddle.
6 – Dip and cook one to six slices of bread at a time or as many as you can fit on your skillet at once.
7 – Then, fry the toast for 2 to 3 minutes, or until bread is golden brown.
8 – Flip the toast with a spatula and continue to cook for an additional 2 to 3 minutes until both sides are golden brown.
9 – Finally, serve with a pat of butter and warm syrup.
*Note: To keep the toast warm while you work: Before you start dipping the bread, place a metal wire rack on a rimmed baking sheet. Place it in the oven and turn the oven to 250 degrees. Move the finished toast to the wire rack until ready to serve.
And that, my friends, is that. It’s pretty gorgeous. And now – to run around and do my errands and my writing and my snuggling on the couch with pets, and my Eggnog French Toast eating.
