I like to think of myself as a generally good girl (wink!) but every now and then ya gotta get a little wild. Oh yea! I’m talking breakfast for dinner, Mayo on fish (sushi style duh) and just because we can…a holiday dish in the peak of the summer!
I found this recipe on What’s Cooking Good Looking and almost had a heart attack! Egg nog frenchies?! Are you kidding! It just might be the ultimate flavor combo.
So if you have been on good behavior and been eating clean all week, step out with the bad boy of breakfasts!
Eggnog French Toast | Vegan
about 6-8 pieces of french toast
1 can of coconut milk
1/3 cup of coconut (or almond, or rice) milk
1/3 cup of water
1/4 cup of maple syrup
1 teaspoon of vanilla
1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg
1/2 a teaspoon of salt
2 tablespoon of almond flour (or any flour of your choice, but I think a sweeter nut flour works best)
1 loaf of day old bread, (I like to use a whole wheat challah bread) sliced into thick 1-2″ slices
*You can use any kind of bread that you like, if you want this to be gluten-free, use your favorite gluten-free loaf, but keep in mind, thick, hearty, day old bread works best.
a few tablespoons of vegan butter, or olive oil for frying
fresh grated nutmeg, maple syrup, powered sugar for toppings
In a large shallow bowl, mix together all of the the ingredients for the vegan eggnog (all of the ingredients listed minus the bread).
Then, set up your cooking station. Place a cast iron pan on the stove over medium heat and heat up about a tablespoon of the butter or oil. Have your sliced bread and bowl with the eggnog near the stove, and a clean plate for the finished pieces on the other side of the stove.
Then, one at a time, very quickly dip the bread into the eggnog, once on each side. Do not let the bread soak in the liquid or else you will end up with soggy french toast.
Place the piece of dipped bread onto the heated pan, and cook for about 5-7 minutes on each side, until it is nice and crisp and brown.
Set it onto the clean plate.
I like to do this one by one until all of the french toast is cooked.
Serve warm, with some freshly grated nutmeg, vegan butter, maple syrup, and/or powered sugar.
