Eggnog French Toast

Have you ever been in a situation where you have been waiting to taste something for a long time but the moment it touches your lips and your tastebuds start realizing the flavor, you are not that happy with the taste... This was my first experience with eggnog. I had always wanted to taste eggnog but when the fact that it is made with raw eggs strikes me, I back off. However last week when I went grocery shopping I saw this pack of organic eggnog and I picked it up after that feeling of compulsion took over me. I opened the pack as soon as I reached home, poured out a tall cup and sat on the couch with that sense of satisfaction.

One sip and I knew that this is just not my cup of tea. Something urged me to take another sip and yet another and by the time I was half way through the cup, I started enjoying the flavors. However the huss didn't enjoy it as much as I did and left the job to me to finish up the carton. Okay 1 carton of 16 servings of eggnog and each serving with a calorie count of 236. Do the math, that sounded a sure increase in waistline. When I was thinking of ideas to use up the eggnog, I saw this recipe in the back of the carton itself. Creating a festive french toast by replacing the milk with eggnog for your french toast sounded just right for me. Since I wanted a pronounced kick of flavors I added some nutmeg, cinnamon and rum extract.

Speaking of which, do you remember the McCormick hamper that I won sometime back. The rum extract is part of that. The hamper is a true haul and has everything that a baker would love to have in her pantry.

~*What U Need*~
Bread slices - 4-5
Eggs - 2
Eggnog - 3/4 cup
Sugar - 3 tbsp or more
Cinnamon - 1/4 tsp
Ground nutmeg - a pinch
Imitation rum extract - 1/4 tsp
Butter or ghee - to toast

How I Made it:
In a mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, rum extract, cinnamon,and nutmeg.

Add in the eggnog and whisk well. Heat a non stick tawa till hot but not piping hot. Dip the bread slices in the milk mixture and cook till evenly cooked through and nice and brown.

Serve warm with maple syrup.

** My Notes:
** To those who donot have to eggnog just increase the nutmeg, cinnamon and rum to taste.
** If you are using freshly ground nutmeg use just a pinch cos it gives a strong flavor.
So thats it Folks...
With Love,
