Eggnog French Toast

Tasty winter breakfast comfort food. Great for Thanksgiving or Christmas Breakfast. I first had Eggnog French Toast when my husband and I took a trip to Florida at Thanksgiving. We ate at a little restaurant in Reddington Beach called The Frog Pond. They had the best breakfast and they weren’t stingy with the servings, everything on the menu was good and it was always way more than I could eat.

2 – 3 eggs
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp sugar (I use Splenda)
