    French Toast

  • Unsalted Butter (for shallow frying)
  • 1 Cup Eggnog
  • 1 Egg(s)
  • 1/4 tsp Nutmeg (freshly grated)
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • Orange Butter

  • 1 tsp Oranges (zest of one orange)
  • 1 tbsp Honey (more if you prefer)
  • 1/4 Cup Unsalted Butter (at room temprature)
  • 1/8 tsp Salt (1-2 pinches)
  • For Serving

  • 1. Orange Butter - In a bowl, add room temperature butter, salt, orange zest, and honey. Mash with back of a spoon until well combined.
  • 2. Scoop with 1 tablespoon scooper on a plate and refrigerate until ready to use.
  • 3. French Toast - Heat a non-stick skillet on medium heat. In a bowl, take eggnog, add egg, salt, and nutmeg. Mix well until egg is fully combined in eggnog.
  • 4. Melt 1 teaspoon butter in skillet. Dip one bread in eggnog mix and coat both sides and place in hot skillet. Cook two breads in skillet at a time (or more if you using a wide skillet). Cook until light brown from both sides. (2-3 minute each side).
    Additional Notes:
    Don't keep bread in eggnog for two long. Just one quick dip is enough. Trust me, it is. :)
