Whether for a brunch or a weekend breakfast with friends or family, there is no better item to serve than French toast! This French Toast Recipe combines very well with our favorite- RUM! This recipe works well with many types or rum- we recommend trying it with Spiced, Vanilla, or Banana – but the sky is the limit!

Yields: 4 servings


    • 1/2 to 3/4 cup half & half
    • 3 large eggs
    • 2 tablespoons sugar
    • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
    • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
    • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
    • 2 tablespoons rum – spiced, vanilla or banana
    • Pinch of sea salt
    • 6-8 slices of thick bread

Directions to make this French Toast Recipe:

    1. Whisk together the half & half, eggs, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, rum, and salt.
    2. Soak bread slices in egg mixture for at least 4 to 5 minutes.
    3. Lightly oil and heat a large griddle or heavy skillet on medium-high. Place the soaked bread on the griddle and cook for 3 to 4 minutes on each side, or until French toast is a light golden brown.
    4. Serve hot with maple syrup, butter, or powdered sugar (or all three!) with a side of fresh fruit.
