My favourite time of year is when you go to the super market and there on the shelves sits the Christmas guest of honor, eggnog. The lovely, yellow-ish milk just calls me over, smelling of holiday spices and creamy goodness.

Although I’m sure people would argue that the best combination is eggnog with a little rum, but I would have to say that my choice of drink would be eggnog with espresso. Starbucks supplies the best but it is completely, and deliciously doable from home to sit beside the fire and cozy up.

The next best thing about eggnog is that it can be consumed at any time of the day…like as in eggnog French toast obviously. It is probably the best Christmas treat to start your day, even if it is snowy. Trust me this recipe from Cooking Classy is to die for; you need to try it tomorrow for yourself.

I only made it for two people, so change the recipe according to the number of guests you are having, but you should probably prepare for seconds.
