Eggnog French Toast

With Christmas day less than a week away I thought I would share a breakfast recipe inspired by the season.  I got the idea for this french toast when my mom made something similar to this a few years back. It is the perfect Christmas morning breakfast, combining traditional french toast with the seasonal favorite, eggnog.
