Absolutely delicious! I decided to make Cinnamon Roll Eggnog French Toast with Vanilla Bourbon Syrup for Christmas morning, and everybody loved it! Something special for a cold holiday morning or lazy weekend brunch.
I love French toast, but adding the eggnog and the vanilla bourbon really kicks it up a delectable notch. All the flavors go together so well, that you might need to make a double batch!
We had some eggnog leftover from Christmas Eve along with this yummy Vanilla Jim Beam Bourbon we used to make the eggnog a bit more “festive”. I also had a can of crescent rolls in the fridge that I was going to use for French toast.
Then it hit me, “Why not make the French toast with the eggnog in the custard?” I mean it is the Holidays after all, so why not dress things up a bit.
I am thinking that I will make this again for New Year’s Brunch. And anytime I am ready for a cheat day, I’ll be thinking of you Cinnamon Roll Eggnog French Toast.
Now the syrup most definitely has me spoiled. I’m sure it’s going on pancakes next, then just about anything that calls for syrup. Like Guy Fieri says “you could put it on a flip flop and it’ll be good”!
Another great thing about this recipe is that you could buy a can of cinnamon rolls, or buy crescent rolls already made, or whatever bread you like. Many people like mixing the custard up the night before, but it only takes a couple minutes for the mixture to soak in. Me, I’m just not one to be prepping breakfast before going to bed, but if your more organized than me, then you could do it up and leave it in the fridge overnight too. However you do it, I’m sure you’ll love every single bite!
