Maple Brandy Eggnog French Toasts
However, these Maple Brandy Eggnog French Toasts are so good that you might crave them every. single. morning during your holidays.
I feel like we all need something different today for a change. I’ve got 2 pretty nice Christmas cookie recipes (Peppermint M&M’s Christmas Cookies and Brandy Chocolate Pink Salt Cookies) so let’s have a different kind of indulgence.
Maple Brandy Eggnog French Toasts.
In fact, I don’t need to say many things here. Just read this name again and slowly. Maple. Brandy. Eggnog. French Toasts. Eggnog. Brandy. Brandy! Does it sound like it’s beginning to
look feel a lot like Christmas?
As the matter of fact, I didn’t plan on incorporating brandy and maple syrup. Just eggnog. However, when I tried a piece of the first made toast, I realized it tasted a little boring. I won’t lie – eggnog flavor isn’t predominant here.
So I decided to make a simple syrup of butter, brandy, and maple syrup to accomplish the toasts.
It’s All About Brandy
A second later I thought why wouldn’t splash a little brandy in the egg mixture as well? I was a little concern because I didn’t know how the alcohol would interact with the eggs and cream. I can assure you it interacted pretty well.
This made me a happy dude enjoyed these Maple Brandy Eggnog French Toasts. Nope, you won’t taste the distinctive flavor of eggnog like I mentioned earlier. However, maple syrup and brandy will definitely help you not to be disappointed about this.
Especially brandy. Because eggnog and brandy…well, you know this!
