So I lived through the great storm of 2010 and woke up this morning feeling a little antsy to get out of the house and do something but before I left I thought why not make some breakfast and start the day off right. Last night I had made shrimp alfredo and had some extra french bread left over so of course thought why not make french toast. There was also a bottle of bourbon on the counter left out from last night and that gave me an idea.
I am a big fan of doctoring up french toast and adding new flavors to it, so I threw a little bourbon into the egg wash with some vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg. As a bonus I mixed together some carmel and bourbon to act as syrup and was very pleased with the results. I don't often have the time or the drive to make breakfast but when I do I like to go all out. These french toasts were a perfect way to start my morning, followed up with a white hot chocolate from caribou and I was already to face the bitter cold that we are experiencing up here in Minnesota.

Mix the ingredients for the egg was together. Generously coat your slices of bread with the egg wash and cook in a pan over medium heat about three or four minutes per side for golden brown.
