Guys, I finally tried eggnog. I’m not really sure as to why I never had it as a kid. It may be a Korean thing since Jason’s never tried it too. Either way, I picked up a carton and decided to make french toast.

But this isn’t your ordinary french toast. This one gets baked in the oven and you can actually prep it the night before. That way, in the morning, all you need to do is throw on the crumb topping, some strawberries (or any other berry would work) and pop it in the oven for a decadent Christmas morning breakfast.

Now how easy was that?

    How do you cube the french bread to make it look like yours?  Do I just use the inside “bread” part?

    Thank you

    Hoping to make this Christmas morning.

  2. Would this work with other fruit as well? Since strawberries aren’t in season at christmas time in the midwest. 

  3. Thank you for posting this- I have made it twice now and it was amazing!

  4. Could this be made dairy free somehow? And if so, how? LOOKS AMAZING! Thank you!

  5. Hi Chung-Ah,

    Love your recipes and blog. It’s like having a conversation in the kitchen with a friend. My teenage daughter is learning how to cook with me and your recipes are simple, great ingredients ( read, don’t have to travel abroad to find them ), and delicious. I’m so glad I found you on Pinterest. I enjoy the pictures you post along with each recipe. Just love it! Thanks for sharing with us “foodies” out here.

    Have a wonderful New Year.
