Big Pine French Toast Recipe

Big Pine French Toast Recipe

I love serving this breakfast on Christmas morning. Add a rising-sun orange slice and herb-garnish grass to this hearty hardwood and enjoy a taste of the great outdoors.—Jan McCormick, Rosemount, Minnesota
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cups eggnog
  • 8 slices day-old bread
  • 8 Johnsonville® Smoked Sausage
  • Green colored sugar
  • Confectioners' sugar
  • 4 orange slices and fresh herbs, optional

Directions

  • 1. Pour eggnog into a shallow bowl; dip both sides of bread in eggnog. In a nonstick skillet, toast bread over medium heat for 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Meanwhile, in another skillet, brown the sausage.
  • 2. Cut French toast diagonally; place four slices, overlapping slightly, on each serving plate for the tree. Place two sausages at the bottom for the trunk. Sprinkle with sugars. Add an orange slice for the sun and herbs for grass if desired. Yield: 4 servings.
Editor's Note: This recipe was tested with commercially prepared eggnog.
