Spiked Egg Nog French Toast

2 eggs
1/2 C. store bought egg nog
2 T. spiced rum (optional)
1/4 t. pumpkin pie spice (or 1/8 t. cinnamon plus 1/8 t. nutmeg)
6 slices bread

Whisk together eggs, eggnog, rum and spices. Heat a griddle. Dip bread in egg mixture, allowing it to soak in slightly. Butter the hot griddle and place soaked bread on the griddle. Cook on each side until golden brown. Serve with butter and powdered sugar or syrup.

Notes: The rum is optional. If you leave it out, try adding 1/2 t. vanilla in it’s place. To increase the recipe: for every three additional pieces of bread add one egg, 1/4 cup of eggnog, and 1 T. rum (or 1/2 t. vanilla).
