    Thanks so much for the recipe, will give it a try! God bless you all for sharing God with others!!! Merry Christmas!!!

  15. This sounds so good. I’m going to make 1/2 the recipe for breakfast in the morning, and try it out. Then a whole one on Christmas. We use eggnog till it goes off the shelves. I do a eggnog bread pudding~~close to the same. Adding blue berries sounds good too. Have a blessed Christmas.

    I have been making something similar to this for many Christmas’s now. My recipe is low fat. It has apples (4) and a cup of dried cranberries. Egg substitute and low fat evaporated milk. My family keeps growing (3 grandchildren now) so I’ll be making a double batch this year.

    I’d like to suggest some healthy subsitutions: whole wheat style bread for the french bread, egg substitute for the 10 eggs, & low-fat or fat free cream cheese. The eggnog & spices will be more than enough flavor to make this healthier version yummy! I haven’t been able to find any low fat/ low sugar eggnog yet, but if you can find a brand that offers that option, use that too (& email us with that info!) You could even add some dried cherries, or cranberries to add some more flavor & give it a pretty holiday look. :-) Healthy Holidays!

      Thank you for the alternative method. I was thinking it was much too sweet and too fattning, but you solved that problem with your ideas. Now I will try it. Thanks, April B.

      This depends on your definition of healthy. My naturopath, who is getting me healthy, would totally disagree. Artificial sweeteners are poison. Also she has me off all low fat and I am losing weight eating whole dairy products, when I can find them. We have too much artificial in our diets. Just sayin’. I am going to go with the whole grain bread however.
