Ma’s Christmas tip for Today

Make French toast with eggnog

When I have company come in for the holidays I like to fix something that I can prepare ahead and then pop into the oven to bake for breakfast the next morning… So I thought I’d share this recipe with you today.

French Bread Toast Casserole

Everything could be mixed the night before and then poured over the French bread in the morning before baking.

1 loaf French bread
6 eggs

3 C milk
1/3 C sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
dash of cinnamon and/or nutmeg (op

Spray a 9x13-pan with non-stick spray. Tear up the bread and place it in the pan. Combine the remaining ingredients together. Pour them over the bread Bake at 375°F for 45 minutes. Dust with powdered sugar. Serve with syrup

Serve this with some good bacon fried crisp or sausages.

I’ve made this recipe plenty of times over the years and it is really good. I’d never thought about using eggnog instead of milk until I saw today’s tip for Christmas and I think it would make it all the more special.

This cute little guy with the antlers on sings a song if you press the button on his hand. The song is:


It is the best time of the year!

‘On Ya’-ma

Wish I could try it but I do not think sweetener would taste the same, I find sweeteners too sickly. Yes, now we are getting a few decs up, starting to feel a little bit more festive. Have a great weekend, dear friend.
