however all thoughts and opinions are my own.
Christmas is almost here, and I seriously CANNOT wait! The entire month of December is filled with such a giving, loving and beautiful spirit that I wish December was more than once a year. With so many of us consumed with purchasing gifts and preparing stunning meals and desserts during the holidays, breakfast can sometimes be overlooked (you won’t do that with this eggy eggnog french toast I warn you!).
But isn’t breakfast the most important meal of the day? I definitely think so. When I saw all of my lovely Safest Choice eggs in my fridge and the seasonal eggnog recipe on their website, I knew a lovely holiday eggy eggnog french toast recipe needed to be added to my to-do list.
Between pancakes and waffles, french toast can get lost in the shuffle. However, eggy eggnog french toast is now my new favorite thing. After all, French toast is just the perfect comforting breakfast food. I adore the crisp golden brown challah soaked in a flavorful custard and covered in fresh butter and pure maple syrup. Now that’s breakfast.
So if you are looking for a Christmas morning breakfast that won’t take too much time away from your holiday fun, definitely pick up some Safest Choice eggs and turn to this incredible recipe to start your day the right away.
