Ingredients

FOR THE FRENCH TOAST:

  • 10 Texas toast bread or thick cut brioche will do
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2/3 cup eggnog
  • 2 tablespoons whole milk
  • 1/4 cup butter melted and cooled to room temperature
  • 3/4 teaspoon real vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon fresh grated nutmeg

FOR THE SYRUP:

  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 stick unsalted butter
  • 1 pinch kosher salt more or less to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 350°.
  • Line a sheet pan with parchment or a silpat.
  • Slice the Texas toast slices into 3 strips or "sticks".
  • In a shallow bowl or pie plate; whisk eggs, eggnog, milk, butter, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg.
  • Quickly dunk the sticks into the batter and place on a rack to drip off any extra batter. Place the sticks on the prepared cookie sheet.
  • Place on the middle rack in your oven and bake for fifteen minutes. Flip and repeat for another 10-15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, pour the syrup into a small bowl. Melt the half stick of butter into a small skillet over medium heat. Watch closely till it is a deep golden brown and not burned. Pour into the maple syrup and stir. Season with salt and serve warm with the french toast sticks.

Notes

After they cool, place them all on a small cookie sheet or plate, set them in the freezer for 15 minutes then store them in a freezer safe container or bags and reheat any morning you want!
