Now for the main course-- eggnog French toast.
The final installment of this week's column will walk you through making eggnog French toast. You can use either an electric griddle, which we didn't have on hand, or a stove top frying pan. 1. Whisk the eggs. Add eggnog and cinnamon to the mixing bowl and whisk until well blended with eggs. 2. Heat skillet or pan. 3. Dip slice of bread into eggnog mixture. Be sure to thoroughly soak each side of the bread. 4. Cook on pan or skillet until golden brown on each side, turning only once (if possible). 5. Eat while still warm. We paired our French toast with sliced fruit and bacon. Enjoy!

Welcome back! Time to put those ingredients together.
Now that you have your ingredients, follow along with our recipe below. 1. Begin by preheating your oven to 350 degrees. Don't do what we did and forget this step until you're done assembling the dish. Whoops. 2. In a sauté pan, heat olive oil and add the chopped onion. Cook until the onion is soft. If you're feeling daring, toss in some garlic, too. 3. Add flour and spinach to the pan and cook everything until the liquid absorbs (about 5 minutes). We found that if we kept stirring the spinach mixture, it didn't get stuck to the pan or dry out too much. 4. Remove pan from heat. Add two eggs and feta cheese. Mix and set aside. 5. Brush melted butter on the bottom of a glass baking dish. As we started this step, we realized that we don't…

Try bringing this great dish to holiday parties or to set out for your own guests as an appetizer.

It's that time of year again. We're all rushing around to buy special gifts, and then we go home and carefully wrap everything and place it under the tree. Sure, the display is lovely, but what happens when your family tears into those presents and leaves piles of wrapping and tissue paper strewn about the living room?
