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.

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!

What’s your perfect Christmas brunch?

  3. I love hearing the thought process behind this one, Ben! I agree with you…maple syrup makes everything better. And then brandy takes it to a whole new level beyond that. I haven’t had French toast in months, and my mouth is actually watering thinking about the flavors you’ve got going on here. Yum! I’m surprised the eggnog version along didn’t do it…but I’m glad you experimented and came up with this version for us.
