Jolly Holiday French Toast

It's almost Christmas!

One of my favorite times of the year.  All the excitement and joy that goes along with Christmas morning, and being surrounded by family makes me all warm and fuzzy inside.

After the flurry of unwrapping presents we will settle down to eat breakfast.  Something festive will be in order, but I also want something easy and quick to make.  (The day ahead will be filled with cooking.)


My Jolly Holiday French Toast is the perfect solution to an easy festive breakfast.  The family will come running when they smell the aromas of nutmeg and cinnamon.  This is no ordinary French toast!  This festive breakfast is one the whole family will enjoy.  

While this recipe serves 4 you can easily double or triple it to feed a crowd.  I made this version on a griddle on the stove.  You can easily alter this to bake this in the oven as a casserole if you would like. (Tip: Bake at 400 degrees for about 35-40 minutes)

So get in and out of the kitchen in no time on Christmas Day with my Jolly Holiday French Toast, so you can spend that quality time with your family and friends.

Enjoy and Merry Christmas!

Jolly Holiday French Toast

serves 2 or 4

4 slices or French or Brioche bread, sliced thick
3 eggs
1 c milk
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon fresh grated nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
Garnish:  powdered sugar, raspberries
warm syrup

Heat a griddle on medium heat. 

In a baking dish add eggs, milk, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt.  Whisk until incorporated.  Place bread in the egg mixture turning over so that each side is well coated.

If necessary, spray your griddle with nonstick cooking spray.  Remove bread slices from the egg mixture allowing any excess to drip off.  Place bread on the griddle and allow to cook 2-3 minutes or until golden brown.  Flip the bread over and continue to cook until golden brown and cooked through.

Remove bread and place on serving plates.  Sprinkle with powdered sugar, dusted over the top and garnish with raspberries if desired.  Serve with warm syrup.
