Who really wants to take the time during the excitement of Christmas morning to stand at the stove and cook French toast on a griddle? Not me that's for sure! This batch of French toast was ready for the oven in the time it took the oven to preheat! Now that's something to appreciate on busy mornings.
1 loaf French bread, sliced in 1" slices
1 cup eggnog
1 t. vanilla extract
dash of salt
1 t. cinnamon
cinnamon sugar for topping before baking
powdered sugar and/or syrup for topping
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Spray a 9 x 13 baking dish with non-stick spray.
In a large bowl, whisk together eggnog, eggs, vanilla extract, salt, and cinnamon. Dip bread slices a few at a time into the eggnog mixture, and allow to soak for a minute or two. Place bread slices into prepared dish and continue until all bread slices have been dunked and placed into the dish.
Pour any remaining eggnog mixture over bread slices. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar and place in oven.
Bake for 18 - 20 minutes until golden brown. Serve immediately. Top with powdered sugar and /or syrup.
