12 daysYesterday morning I woke up really early after having very little sleep. It was one of those days where you should be tired when you are up since you really didn’t sleep but instead you’re wired. Ever have one of those? Well that’s how I was yesterday and while packing up goodies for the school and getting the hubby and kids ready I decided I should also work on a new breakfast recipe. I came up with an Eggnog French Toast Bake with Bourbon Caramel Sauce. Yes, clearly I was a bit overly ambitious yesterday but I get like that sometimes. The hubby and I were the ones who got to enjoy it but enjoy it we did.

As if french toast, eggnog and caramel were not already rich and decadent enough, oh no. I had to go throw them together and make something that was divine. You see for the bread I used cocktail croissants. Oh goodness, that’s right another level of richness. This is definitely something to make for Christmas breakfast or Easter even since they have eggnog out then too. It is so good! No, I mean really, soooo good! That says something too because I a, not a huge fan of french toast.
