Egg Nog French Toast with Cranberry Compote

If you are wondering what to eat for breakfast on Christmas morning, I have the perfect thing‼ This Egg Nog French Toast is AMAZING!! The tangy cranberry compote really pushes it over the top.

The best part is that it takes under 30 minutes start to finish!

What you need,
For 4 slices of French toast

2 eggs beaten
½ cup egg nog
½ tsp. vanilla
Fresh grated nutmeg and cinnamon, to taste
4 slices of bread, whatever you like

For the cranberry compote,
1 cup fresh cranberries
2 tbsp. water
2-3 tbsp. sugar (depending on your taste)
Fresh grated nutmeg and cinnamon, to taste

In a shallow dish whisk together the eggs, egg nog, vanilla and spices until well blended.
Soak each piece of bread in the egg nog mixture until full coated.

Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add a teaspoon of butter to the pan. Once it is melted add the soaked bread and bake for 5-6 minutes, flipping halfway through until brown on both sides and the custard is set.

Remove to a plate.

While the French toast is cooking make the compote.  In a small pot combine the cranberries, water and sugar. Cook over medium heat until the cranberries split and the mixture thickens. Season the compote with freshly grated cinnamon and nutmeg. Set aside to cool slightly.

Serve the French toast with some of the cranberry compote, a light drizzle of syrup and a dusting of powdered sugar.
A few pieces of crispy bacon on the side never hurt either!

I can’t wait to make this wonderful breakfast again! It was so yummy, it tasted just like Christmas!!
