Looking for a spectacular brunch idea to top off your holiday season? This fool-proof low FODMAP eggnog French toast is the perfect way to use up all those holiday leftovers!
We're currently renovating our house, so we've been camping out with our in-laws for a few months now (like all the months).
While we're here, I've been sharing all of my favourite holiday traditions with my in-laws. Like dressing up the dogs in tree beads, making piles of gingerbread cookies and butter tarts to drop off to our new neighbours (to apologize for the mess we're making!), and my absolute favourite holiday treat – homemade eggnog!
I made a HUGE batch of homemade low FODMAP eggnog around my birthday (as is the tradition where I come from), and was shocked to hear this was not an eggnog-loving family… So I had a few lovely glasses of eggy ambrosia alone by the tree and plopped the rest in the freezer for safekeeping.
I thought it was going to die in there until my mother-in-law realized she didn't have anything planned for Christmas brunch. I whipped out that eggnog faster than she could say – seriously, nobody likes your egg juice! – and made the fluffiest, crispiest, most Christmas-inspired French toast I have ever eaten! By the time my in-laws had finished their second helping, a new Christmas tradition had been born!
This low FODMAP eggnog French toast is seriously the tastiest French toast you will ever eat! First of all, the egg mixture is like 90% whipping cream, so it's like eating a cloud of delicious goodness. Plus, you have all the tasty eggnog seasonings for a little extra seasonal flare.
And this type of French toast is almost impossible to screw up! Just your coated bread chill for a minute so it can soak up the magic and bake them on a lightly greased baking sheet until they look puffy and are starting to turn a golden colour. DONE!
Seriously, even if you had a few too many holiday spirits last night, or if you haven't had nearly enough coffee this morning, odds are this eggnog French toast will turn out spectacular!
Keep it FODMAP friendly
Put a holiday-friendly twist to your next brunch with this easy low FODMAP eggnog French toast! Check out the notes below for tips on keeping this recipe FODMAP friendly!
First up, eggnog! If you're in the elimination phase of the low FODMAP program. You're going to need lactose-free eggnog. Make sure to check the label for other high-FODMAP ingredients like high fructose corn syrup (HFCS), glucose-fructose, milk solids, and milk byproducts.

We'll also be using bread. If you're in the elimination phase of the low FODMAP program, you'll need to use gluten-free bread. Make sure to double-check the label for other sneaky high-FODMAP ingredients like amaranth flour, inulin, and high FODMAP fruit juices and purees.
Remember, unless you have celiac disease, you're avoiding the FODMAP fructan in wheat, not gluten itself!
According to Monash University, gluten-free bread is low FODMAP in servings of 2 slices (52 g) per serving. Servings of 3.5 slices (91 g) or more are high in the FODMAPs fructose and fructan. We'll be using two pieces of bread per serving, which is within the recommended range.

- Preheat your oven to 400 degrees and lightly grease a baking sheet with butter. Make a single layer of bread slices on the baking sheet and bake for 6 minutes. Then turn each slice over and bake for another 6-8 minutes (or until the bread is puffy and golden brown). Serve warm with maple syrup, low FODMAP fruits, or a low FODMAP serving of cottage cheese.
