1 ½ cup Maple Syrup

1/3 cup Unsalted Butter, at room temperature

1 tbsp Bourbon

Eggnog French Toast

1. (Optional, if baking after). Preheat oven to 375°F. 

2. In a bowl, whisk egg until well beaten. Add remaining ingredients to the eggs, whisk until well combined.

3. Prepare a baking sheet by placing a wire cooling rack over top. Place bread slices into custard batter, soak for 10 seconds per side. Place soaked bread slices onto the wire rack that is over top of a baking sheet. Allow bread to rest on racks for around 1 minute, while you preheat your pan.

4. Preheat a large frying pan. When hot, add ½ tbsp of butter and ½ tbsp of oil. When butter has melted and bubbles have dissipated, add bread slices (do not overcrowd the pan). Cook about 3 minutes per side, or until golden brown.
