Expert Tips:
  • Be sure to use a non-stick frying pan for the best results.
  • If you're using homemade eggnog, don't whip the cream, use whole milk instead of bourbon, and add vanilla!
  • Make sure your pan doesn't get too hot! You don't want to burn the grease or the bread.
  • This recipe doesn't keep well.
  • Make sure the bread is thoroughly soaked before frying.
