Eggnog French Toast Casserole

December 8, 2017


My ultimate comfort food can be found in just about any kind of casserole. 

When the holidays roll around you can find them front and center on most dinner tables, but have you ever found yourself indulging in a yummy breakfast one?

If you’re having overnight guests or bringing a dish to pass at a friend’s brunch, do not underestimate what a time saver a casserole could be.

I wanted to do something a bit different this year and so I honed in on an eggnog bottle in my fridge.

If you’re anything like me, you crave eggnog as soon as Nov. 1 hits, but find it really hard to finish a bottle because it’s so freakin’ rich. Well I’m here to let you in on a secret: you should use your leftover eggnog in a French toast casserole!

SoCal locals, there’s an amazing local company that sells eggnog that can’t be beat. They’re called Broguiere’s and I found them on Milk & Eggs. Along with a delicious product, I love the eco-friendly glass bottle it comes in!

I also picked up some eggs, fresh baked brioche bread, whole milk, and unsalted butter to accompany a few pantry ingredients I already had in the house.

The eggnog really shines in this recipe without being too overwhelming. I’m a huge fan of nutmeg and it definitely pulls through!

Give it a whirl using my recipe below.

Eggnog French Toast Casserole

  • 1 loaf brioche
  • 3 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 3 C eggnog
  • 1 C whole milk
  • 6 eggs
  • 1/2 C granulated sugar

  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • Powdered sugar
  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Cut bread into 1-inch thick slices and lay out on baking sheet, lightly toasting until golden brown.
  3. Butter one side of each piece of toast. Tear buttered toast into 1-inch pieces and create on layer in greased 9x13 baking dish.
  4. In a large bowl, whisk eggnog, milk, sugar, vanilla, and salt together.
  5. Pour mixture over bread, gently using your hands to make sure most liquid is absorbed.
  6. Cover dish and refrigerate 1 hour or overnight.
  7. Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  8. Bake for roughly 45 minutes to 1 hour until bread is lightly toasted.
  9. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
