Make-Ahead Eggnog French Toast Recipe

My husband loves to try new recipes and discovered this eggnog-flavored toast. Preparing it the night before is a great time-saver for a busy morning.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. + chilling Bake: 20 min. YIELD:5 servings

Ingredients

  • 5 slices white bread (1-1/4 inches thick)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups eggnog
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted, divided
  • Confectioners' sugar

Directions

  • 1. Place the bread in an ungreased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. In a bowl, whisk the eggs, eggnog, cinnamon and nutmeg. Pour over bread. Cover and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight.
  • 2. Grease a 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan with 2 tablespoons melted butter. Carefully transfer bread to prepared pan. Brush with remaining butter.
  • 3. Bake, uncovered, at 400° for 10 minutes. Carefully turn slices over. Bake 10-15 minutes longer or until golden brown and slightly puffed. Dust with confectioners' sugar. Serve immediately. Yield: 5 servings.
