“Regular sliced sandwich bread is not recommended for this try to use French or even Italian bread and make certain that it is a day old, the sugar amount may be adjusted to suit taste --- served sprinkled with powdered sugar and maple or pancake syrup :)”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 large eggs, slightly beaten
  • 1 12 cups commercial store-bought eggnog (store-bought eggnog is recommended)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon (can increase to 1-1/2 teaspoons)
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tablespoon sugar (adjust amount to taste) (optional)
  • 12 slices day-old French bread
  • confectioners' sugar
  • pancake syrup (of choice)


  1. In a bowl whisk together the eggs with eggnog, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice and sugar until very well blended (you may need to whisk vigorously to incorporate the spices) transfer to a shallow dish (I use my 8 x 8-inch baking pan for this).
  2. Melt 1-2 tablespoons butter in a skillet over medium heat.
  3. Dip one slice of bread at a time into the egg mixture making certain that the slices are thoroughly coated.
  4. Place onto hot skillet and cook until lightly browned on each side.
  5. Serve warm.
