Quick Eggnog French Toast

There's no last-minute fussing with this breakfast or brunch favorite. Slices of French bread soak up the egg-cream mixture overnight. A little nutmeg and rum extract give the dish its sweet eggnog-like taste. -Barbara Nowakowski North Tonawanda, New York

    I made this a few years ago and it was terrific! I was worried that it would be too soggy but it came out perfect. Will be making this Christmas morning!
